Attempted Identity Theft Foiled By Card Holder

State Police were called to a Ulysses residence after Jason Kenyon Reed of 411 Church Street in that Borough reviewed his debit card transactions and observed an unknown pre-authorized purchase for $560.72 worth of merchandise at a Bed, Bath and Beyond located in New Jersey.

Reed was able to contact his bank before the purchase was approved. Anyone with information about the reported incident is asked to contact PSP Coudersport at 814-274-8690. Trooper Roger McCloskey said the investigation is continuing.

How is publishing more specific information about a victim going to help in curtailing identity theft? Seems a bit counterproductive to preserving identity.

Good point with regard to the ss# and dob. From what I understand, it would have taken less than that information for the account to be charged. It's easy to get a little paranoid when this kind of thing happens.
