Quinte West OPP searching for man allegedly involved in debit card fraud
OPP are on the lookout for a man they say used fraudulent ID to obtain access to someone else’s debit card.
On Dec. 21, 2018, OPP responded to a fraud reported at a local bank in the city of Quinte West.
Police say a man caught on security footage used fake identification to obtain a replacement debit card for another person’s debit account.
Police claim the debit card was used numerous times in the Quinte West and Belleville area to withdraw over $5,000 in Canadian and American currency.
On Dec. 27, police allege the man went back to the same bank in Quinte West and tried to open a new account “under fraudulent pretense” and then fled.
