2009-05-26 06:35:38


At least five people in the Bridgewater area have been victims of electronic identity theft.    In one case, a woman says she lost about $1,000 from her bank account.    John Collyer, the town's deputy police chief, says they aren't sure yet if the money was taken through an automatic teller machine or by another means.    He won't say if they have any suspects but adds that in past cases they have been able to identify people through video surveillance.    Police are advising people to check their bank statements carefully and to notify them or the bank if there are any unusual transactions or withdrawals.
