Thursday morning at 10:21, Community Service Officers took a Fraud Possession-Use Credit or Debit report after learning from an elderly victim that someone hacked her Facebook account, including changing her phone number. Upon contacting Facebook through a fake number unknown to the victim, someone directed the victim to go to Kroger and purchase three $500 Target gift cards with her debit card. She was successful in purchasing two. Having difficulty with the third, they told her to withdraw $500 cash from an ATM to buy the third, all of which she did, and also provided photos of the cards as requested. Additionally, her bank in the 100-block of N. Collegiate informed her of an additional loss of money from her account through her debit card.
