Two representatives of Employee Benefits attempted to gather sensitive information from employees of Atlanta Police, MARTA Police, and Atlanta fire department employees.  They visited several locations and offered upgraded insurance and benefits packages through AFLAC insurance.  Employee Benefits is a legitimate provider of insurance, but not of AFLAC insurance.  The representatives handed out business cards and their supervisor was called when a police lieutenant noticed that the representatives appeared to be frauds.  They were arrested and at least 39 information packets that contain sensitive information were recovered.  The two representatives face multiple counts of identity theft and racketeering.
