A resident of Raymond Heights road recently was told by her wireless carrier that she’d bought two iPhones — although she hadn’t.

She checked her wireless bill and found that she’d been signed up for an installment plan for the two phones, with payments added to her monthly bill.

When she reported the matter to police on March 5, she was asked about any recent suspicious activity that could have given fraudsters her personal information.

She recalled an unsolicited email from her internet provider asking her to confirm some information. She had clicked on a link and typed in her personal information. She now realizes that the email may not have been legitimate.
