ID Thieves Try to Steal $9,900 From Woman; She Gets 30,000 Emails

She was bombarded with tens of thousands of emails after someone hacked her retirement savings account. Also, a public indecency case. An arrest is merely an accusation, not evidence of a conviction.


A Niles woman, 55, works for a Chicago corporation and her retirement investment account is managed by an investment firm. She accesses it on the web. Shortly before Sept. 15, she began receiving notices saying she had changed her email address to several different account addresses, but she had not made any such change, police said. On Sept. 12, she received a notification that a loan of $9.900 had been made against her account, but she did not initiate it, according to police. On Sept. 8, she began receiving thousands of emails from unknown people; in one day, over 30,000 emails arrived. She deleted them, and her employer and the investment firm are investigating. She requested police follow-up and said she will sign complaints.

His court date is 10/26/2012 at the Skokie branch of the Cook County courts.
