Villager worried about suspicious mail calls sheriff’s deputy for help

A 62-year-old Villager called a Marion County sheriff’s deputy for help last week after receiving a suspicious piece of mail.

The man, who lives in the 9100 block of 167th Ford Street in the Phillips Villas, reported receiving mail on Thursday from Pentagon Federal Credit Union. The man said the document contained his correct name, address, date of birth and Social Security number, a sheriff’s office report states.

The man told the deputy that he was concerned because he has never used Pentagon Federal Credit Union in the past. He said he was unsure if someone was trying open an account with his personal information or if the credit union obtained his information from his current bank.

The man said he had contacted his bank and they told him he would need to file a report with the sheriff’s office to obtain a case number, which the deputy provided to him.
