The Frogtown Road resident called police July 27 after she received several letters from retail stores regarding lines of credit she opened or attempted to open, police said. The 38-year-old woman, who had not tried to open any of those accounts, said she had letters from Lowe's, Toys "R" Us, hhgregg, Littman Jewelers, Walmart and Helzberg Diamonds, according to the report.
Three of those accounts already had purchases. Police said $3,000 was spent at Lowe's, $5,937 at hhgregg and $5,445 at Littman Jewelers.
