APPLETON - Investigators warned a Hess Road woman to keep a close eye on her bank accounts in the wake of a possible case of identity theft.
The victim contacted Niagara County sheriff's deputies after receiving a call from Dallas, informing her that a woman had just used her Social Security number while attempting to rent an apartment there. The woman said that there had been no fraudulent activity involving any of her bank accounts up to that point, and was warned to monitor them closely in upcoming days in case attempts were made to withdraw money.
