A Buford man discovered he was a victim of identity theft while reviewing the monthly charges for one of his credit cards.
According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the man received his Best Buy credit card statement on Dec. 7. When he looked at the charges, he noticed several he had not made. The transactions, totaling $282, had been completed at the Best Buy on Pleasant Hill Road.
The man informed police he had also learned of fraudulent charges on his Jared’s credit card. That card, the man said, was used to make purchases totaling $3,100 from the Jared’s Jewelers on Pleasant Hill Road. The man spoke with a representative in the fraud department at Jared’s who reportedly advised the company did have video surveillance of the fraudulent transaction.
The man added that he had never actually received credit cards from either store even though he had applied for them. He said it was possible the cards could have been stolen out of his mailbox.
The case is listed as active.
