Lockport area woman is victim of identity fraud

TOWN OF LOCKPORT – A Ruhlman Road woman who was previously the victim of identity fraud while living in Puerto Rico has apparently been victimized again, sheriff’s deputies said Sunday.

During a check of the woman’s finances to determine her eligibility for local housing assistance, it was learned that a woman in Connecticut was using the victim’s name, date of birth and Social Security number for her employment at a business there, deputies said. An investigation into the alleged fraud was launched.
