BANGOR - The Bangor Police Department has taken at least three calls this morning from citizens stating that they were charged on their credit card accounts for purchases they never made. All of these were purchases made overseas. All of these victims never gave out their information at any time and have no idea how someone could have obtained it.
Police are asking people to carefully check their credit card statements when they receive them in the mail for unknown purchases - especially ones from oversea locations and call your credit card company immediately to report that.
