A Scarsdale man had his identity stolen and was possibly bilked out of nearly $3,000, Scarsdale police said.
The resident—a 42-year-old Brown Road man—told cops last week that he received a missive from an online billing company. The business informed him that someone posed as him to buy a Hewlett Packard computer with a hefty price tag.
The computer ran about $2,936.66, cops said.
Police said the Scarsdale man has not yet had the money withdrawn from his account. Authorities are treating the case as an identity theft, a class D felony.
