A McKee Road woman told Niagara County Sheriff's deputies Friday night that someone had attempted to make a $300 purchase in her name but was denied.

Hewlett Packard called the woman to inform her of the fraudulent attempt and the woman, in turn, told NCSO. She was unable to give a full report, however, because her bank was closed for the weekend. Patrol asked her to call back Monday.

When the woman called back Monday, however, the complaint went from attempted fraud to identity theft. Whoever had failed with Hewlett Packard had succeeded with Walmart, Staples and potentially other stores, making fraudulent purchases totaling $1,200.

The complainant said there is additional information regarding the suspect from the companies that the fraudulent purchases were made from, and that a Walmart employee told her that the merchandise was delivered to an unknown address in Missouri. The investigation was forwarded to the Criminal Investigation Bureau.

The woman said that her bank reimbursed her the money due to the fraudulent transactions.
