A Monroe woman said someone fraudulently ordered a replacement credit card in her name on Jan. 25.
The woman she said was informed by her credit card company that her replacement request had been received, and the new card would be delivered to a Fitchburg, Mass., address.
She attempted to stop delivery of the new card but couldn’t, and a shipping company confirmed that the Fitchburg address did receive a packet from the credit card company.
As a matter of policy, neither the credit card firm nor the shipping company would divulge the Fitchburg delivery address to the woman.
Police said dating back to 2002, the woman had trouble with suspicious activity on another credit card in her name. That account then was closed. Shortly thereafter, her email account was hacked, she told officers.
Until this month, she had experienced no problems since the email account hacking issues.
