ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany Police get an average of 15 calls a week reporting financial crimes, now they're warning you to protect your personal information.
In a recent case, police say 34-year old Santennial Elaine Harris stole 15 checks from a Lee County Alzheimer's patient, forged them, then cashed them at an Albany bank. They say you must carefully choose who has access to your personal information. They recommend never sending money or giving information to someone who solicits you through email or the Internet. They also say you should shred all mail with personal information.
"Because we're a highly technical society and everyone wants to get on the Internet and they want to take part in, hey 77 dollars and hour, you can make it sitting at home doing everything online, you have to be real careful because a lot of those are scams," said Sgt. Michael Persley.
Police say you should never put your social security number on your driver's license, or carry the card in your wallet, where it could be lost or stolen. if you've been the victim of financial fraud you can call the Albany Police even if the fraud occurred somewhere else.
