MONROE, CT — A cyber criminal hacked an email account at New England Home Delivery, 448 Pepper St., and sent an email to one of the employees with a request to transfer funds to cover an outstanding $47,600 invoice, according to a police complaint filed Tuesday.

Police said a check was shipped and was being processed in the state of Georgia.

The company made a stop payment request, but as of Friday, police did not know if it had been made in time to prevent the fraudulent transaction from being completed.
