A warning about identity theft in Shoreline

A Meridian Park neighbor says she's just had an experience with identity theft and wants to let everyone in the area know what happened.

She says her February bank statement was stolen from her mailbox and sent to London, where the thief extended her credit, emptied her accounts, and tried to change the address of record -- which is when the bank finally got in touch with her. That's how she found out what was going on. She says it all happened really quickly and no other mail was missing. She reported it to the police and they (the police) say that it sounds like a very professional job.

Back in January we posted an article about people snooping around in mailboxes here in Shoreline. You can read that article here. (it includes contact information for Shoreline Police)
