On-Line Police Information- Fraud: Purcellville VA

The complainant discovered that her brother, who suffers from a minor cognitive disability, was being “cat fished” online, by a subject who convinced him to provide personally identifying and financial information. Police assisted the family in contacting the credit bureaus and financial institutions to place fraud alerts on all his accounts. As of this report, there did not appear to be any financial losses, but the real value was likely to come from selling the victim’s information.
