  • East Hampton

    A 16-year-old Chinese boarding student at the Ross School in East Hampton had her credit card account hacked last month by someone operating in the Washington, D.C., area. The girl’s mother called her from China to say her Visa bill showed four transactions totaling over $2,000, all on the same day and at the same grocery store in Rockville, Md. After the card was canceled, the thief attempted to use it again, this time in Washington. That charge was declined.
