An unknown suspect deceived a Glencoe resident by claiming their social security number was used to steal their identity on Sept. 12. The suspect offered to get the victim a new social security number and had them go to several Target stores to get gift cards to pay for the new number. 

In all, the victim purchased nearly $17,000 before being told by an employee that it was a scam. The victim then hung up on the caller.
