BEND, OR -- A local medical facility is warning patients to watch for potential bank account problems after an employee was arrested for multiple counts of identity theft. According to the letter issued to patients by Desert Orthopedics last week, an employee is accused of stealing credit card and personal information from at least two Desert Orthopedics patients. She allegedly used that information to shop online. 

 

The employee worked for the company from July 1, 2016 until January 31, 2017 when they learned of the breach. In the letter, the Desert Orthopedics says they "have taken immediate steps to reinforce and enhance all financial fraud protocols to ensure that all patient information is secure going forward. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."
 
Those who suspect they may be a victim in the case are urged to call Bend Police at 541-693-6911.
