On Tuesday, January 29, 2013 a Bay Village resident filed a report of identity theft. The resident reported over the last three years someone else has been using her social security number. She discovered the problem when she went to her bank to refinance her mortgage. A check of her credit report showed multiple outstanding accounts that she did not open. The resident filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and contacted the Social Security Administration to insure her social security number was not the same as anyone else’s. Detectives are investigating. Residents are encouraged to check their credit report (which can be done online for free) at least once a year for accuracy and fraud.
