STEVENSVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of identity theft and fraud.

Aliene Deale of the 300 block of William Way told police April 3 that she had been contacted March 17 by AT&T about a new account. She said she told them she hadn’t opened the account, and AT&T investigated and confirmed it was opened fraudulently.

AT&T closed the account and advised her to contact her bank, credit bureau and the Social Security Administration in case her information had been used elsewhere, she told deputies.
