FAIRFIELD — Police are reviewing security video in an attempt to discover who hacked Sacred Heart University’s Verizon account and ordered $27,488 worth of iPhones.
The university’s Department of Public Safety called police last week to report that someone used the account to order 50 of the Apple cellphones. FedEx attempted to deliver the phones to the campus on March 25, but the school offices were closed because it was Good Friday.
An as-yet unidentified man instead can to the FedEx distribution center in Stratford that day and picked up the phones.
Verizon has reportedly credited the university’s account for the phones.
