DARIEN — Over the last week, police received two reports of identity thefts involving Darien residents.
On April 11, police learned about a 73-year-old Darien resident’s credit card being fraudulently used to book a stay in San Diego via Hotels.com. The victim contacted police, but there was no evidence of local criminal activity.
Two days later, police received a report from a 35-year-old Darien man who was contacted by T-Mobile about a potentially fraudulent charge made in his name. T-Mobile canceled the charges when the man confirmed they weren’t his, but upon running a credit check, the man found a second credit inquiry was made in his name to Overstock.com. The man canceled that charge as well. There was no evidence of local criminal activity, police said.
