Someone used a Fairfield Twp. woman’s online Walmart account to buy a 55-inch television, according to Fairfield Twp. police.
The woman’s Walmart account, which she said she hadn’t used in more than one year, is linked to her bank account, according to a police report filed May 13.
An official with the woman’s bank notified her on Sunday of the $636.86 charge.
The woman, 60, called Walmart’s Loss Prevention Department and a staff member notified her the suspect had already picked up the television from the West Chester Twp. Walmart on Cincinnati-Dayton Road.
A second purchase was attempted on Sunday — this time for $562.32 — but that did not go through as the woman’s account had been frozen by that time.
