ID Theft Continues To Be Major Problem

Thieves are stealing credit card numbers again from area residents. Several area residents have reported to police that their credit card and debit card numbers have been used to make unauthorized purchases and have those shipped to Maine, Michigan, Missouri and other states. In one incident a Manchester resident’s debit card number was used to purchase a computer and wanted the computer shipped to Maine. Police are urging residents to pay close attention to their credit/debit card statements.
