Trenton Woman Receives Mysterious Package, Reports Identity Theft

The following information was supplied by the Trenton Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A 74-year-old Trenton woman reported her identity had been stolen after she received a mysterious package at about 12:30 p.m. Oct. 25 in the 3800 block of Longmeadow.

The woman told Trenton police she received a package from FedEx containing three cell phones from AT&T that she did not order at about noon Oct. 17.

She said she called AT&T to inform them of the mistake and was advised that someone had ordered them online using her name, date of birth, social security number and address. The wireless provider also informed her that the account had already been canceled because of suspicion of fraud.

The woman sent the phones back to AT&T, according to a Trenton police report.

The woman said she was advised by the wireless provider to make a police report on the incident.

So sad. Glad she was there to get the package and that ATT was on top of things.

What a wonderful thing that the authorities were there to assist this woman with what could have otherwise been a rather difficult situation.
