Police are investigating two similar fraud reports in which victims said their personal information was used by unknown suspects to obtain loans, according to police reports.

The complainants filed separate reports Friday. One of them, a 25-year-old woman, went to the police station, while police responded to the second report filed by another woman, 50, in the 1900 block of Colorado Boulevard.

The younger woman told police the loan obtained was for $1,975.

Two loans were obtained in the older woman’s name for an undisclosed amount of money, according to the report.

Although the cases are similar, police spokeswoman Khristen Jones said there’s no indication they are related. Both reports are under investigation.
