A North Carolina man filed a complaint that he had been a victim of an email fraud this week involving an online poker room.

The victim told Officer Sowers of the Greeneville police on Tuesday that he had received an e-mail message that supposedly had been sent to him from absolutepoker.com (but actually had not), saying his account had been "deactivated."

When the victim replied to the e-mail, according to the police report, someone gained access to his private financial information and used it to remove $1,600 from his bank account.

But when the victim contacted absolutepoker.com, he was told several other people also had had their identities stolen in similar fashion. The company then refunded the victim's money, according to the police report.

It was unclear how these individuals were targeted.
