Birmingham man victim of identity theft

After finding letters in the mail for auto loans and an attempt to buy a car, a Birmingham man placed fraud alerts on all of his accounts when he realized someone was using his information.


According to the man, who lives in the 600 block of Pierce Street, he had gotten several letters from different financial and insurance companies for an auto loan he reported he didn’t apply for. The victim also reported that a car dealership employee had contacted him letting him know that someone was trying to use his identity to buy a car.


The victim reported the identity fraud to Birmingham police on Saturday, June 3, and stated that he put fraud alerts on his accounts. Reportedly, there haven’t been any fraudulent charges made since the report.


Birmingham police say an investigation is ongoing.
