Check yourself

A Sammamish man said somebody cashed a check from his checking account before 9:43 a.m. Sept. 4. He then contacted his bank and closed the account before contacting police. The estimated loss is $1,500.

Bad Apple

Police responded to a call at about 11 a.m. Sept. 5 after a woman said she lost her iPhone at a Sammamish Plateau shopping center and then used its tracking feature to locate it at a store in Issaquah. When she went to the store, she identified the phone and used her pass code to activate it. But a store employee said the woman needed to pay for the phone or provide a police report number in order for him or her to release it. Police then determined who sold the phone to the store. The seller said she found the phone at a shopping center and then sold it to the Issaquah store.


A Sammamish woman facing a problem with her email account contacted a man from an online help desk before Sept. 7. She then gave the man remote access to her computer, but she later regretted the decision, because he had access to her confidential information.
