On June 28, 2011 at 9:49 p.m., a resident reported that someone made a fraudulent purchase with his Sovereign Bank debit card. The victim explained that he attempted to use his debit card to purchase gas and was advised by the attendant that his debit card would not process the order. The victim then responded to Sovereign Bank and learned that his debit card was frozen due to an attempted withdrawal in the amount of $0.52, which the bank explained could be a sign of fraud. Sovereign Bank also advised the victim that a $149.00 purchase was attempted at a Best Buy in Minnesota using his debit card.
Later in the day, the victim received a telephone call from a Madison, NJ resident stating that a Playstation console was wrongfully delivered to his house in Madison by UPS which was supposed to be delivered to the victim. The victim stated he did not order a Playstation and contacted police.
