Identity Theft Alert
Yesterday, Columbia County law enforcement agencies declared an "identity theft alert." More than fifty people have reported suspicious charges to credit cards and bank accounts. People are warned to check their credit card and bank statements carefully for unauthorized charges, and retailers are asked to check identification before accepting payment by credit card or debit card. Audra Jornov has more on the story in today's Register-Star: "ID theft epidemic sweeps county."
