Obtaining property by false pretenses
The State Employees Credit Union, 1804 N. Berkeley Blvd., found out Thursday it had been duped for the amount of $275.

A Country View Road resident discovered Thursday that he has fallen victim to identity theft. The IRS notified the man that his Social Security number has been used in various states and at multiple places of employment to obtain jobs for which no taxes have been paid. The IRS is now trying to take his tax refund for unpaid taxes he insists he does not owe. The victim told police he has never worked at any of the locations listed by the IRS.
