Deer Park business victim of identity theft

A Deer Park business owner says his company was recently targeted in a scam that is charging customers for no reason.

Hugh Daly says he began receiving complaints on Easter from customers claiming his business, JHD Productions, was charging their accounts 40 to 70 cents for no services.

Daly says the identity of his company was stolen and the hacker opened a merchant credit card account.

According to Suffolk police, scams like the one plaguing Daly's company are often operated from outside the U.S.

Residents who believe they've been wrongfully charged should contact their banks to dispute the charge.
