TORONTO – Toronto police are on the hunt for an accused bank fraudster who investigators say has swindled banks in the Greater Toronto Area out of thousands.
Police say on May 28, between 1:45 p.m. and 2:15 p.m., a man entered an unidentified bank and was able to impersonate a bank client by providing identification and answering all security verification questions.
The man then received a replacement debit card, according to investigators.
Police allege the man attended two other branches after, withdrawing a total of $7,500.
The same man is believed to be responsible for similar fraud in Peel Region, police say.
Police have released security camera images of the suspect.
The suspect is described as having a dark complexion, 20 to 30, five-foot-eight to six-feet-tall, with a medium build and he was clean shaven. He was last seen wearing dark-framed glasses.
Police say anyone who sees the suspect should call 911.
