Blotter: Woman the victim of fraud after PayPal password change

A woman reported a fraud by wire, computer or electronic manipulation to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old woman received an email from PayPal, an online payment system, that her password was changed, though she hadn’t used the site in four years. The woman also received an email from Wells Fargo that a person named Bill Bob transferred money to Zelle, a digital payment network.
