The following items include information provided by the Skippack Barracks of the Pennsylvania State Police. Arrests, where they are mentioned, do not indicate conviction.

Identity Theft

State Police are investigating the alleged identity theft of two Lansdale residents, which was reported shortly after 12 p.m. on June 21 along the 2000-block of Hillcrest Drive in Worcester Township.

According to the report, 42-year-old Lee Koch was contacted by Detective Geckle of the Upper Merion Police Department, regarding a retired NYPD officer who was scammed out of money by a website titled www.koch-financial.com.

The website allegedly listed the address of Koch's father, Stanton, as the point of contact, but Koch informed officers that his father had passed away more than a month earlier, and that the family had no affiliation with the website.

The Upper Merion Police Department, the New York City Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police are currently investigating the incident.

Theft of Diamonds

The Pennsylvania State Police are searching for a man who allegedly stole a pear-shaped diamond and gold rope chain from 79-year-old Yolanda Disiro, of Lansdale.

The report states that sometime between 8 p.m. on May 21 and 12 p.m. on May 30, an unknown person entered a cabinet in the dining room of a home located along the 40-block of Essex Court in Worcester Township and removed the diamond and chain from a crystal champagne flute.

The Pennsylvania State Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

I received an email from a Maureen Freidman with Koch Financial stating I had been approved for a $5,000 loan. She said I would receive it in 2-3 dys and all I needed to send was $650 for insurance purposes but 1/2 would be refunded after first 6 payments. She then stated I needed to send an additional $450 to get full insurance. I signed a loan/insurance agreement, sent my bank statement and a copy of my license and faxed it to them at 877-788-5201. I put $650 on one "green dot money pack"and $450 on the other.  She said my loan would be deposited w/in 72 hrs. This was 6-15-12, today is 6-25-12 and I still have not received it. She will not answer any!! Of my calls emails etc. I cant get through to customer service or speak to a supervisor. Beware of scam!!!! $1,100 total out of me!!! I had moved out of my house thinking I would get this loan, ended up sleeping in a hotel for 4 days then with anyone that would let me stay for 3 days. Sad sad situation, but when u do wrong, it follows you. Truly don't see how u people rest peacefully at night.

I received a call and email from Alexis Hughes and Carrie Smith @ Koch-Financial & ACF-Loans. I was informed I would have my $5,000 loan deposited into my account within 3 business days. It has been 4 days now and still no money. When I call these ladies, my phone number is blocked and wont go thru. I have sent numerous emails and still no reply. I am out of $850.00 from this outragious scam!!!!! I am contacting the Attorney General Office. I have a copy of the loan papers that were sent to me. These people pray on people who are trying to do good in there life and get back on track. You know KARMA will get them. I am not through with these companies and or the two representatives.
