ORIGINAL STORY

On June 2nd, 2017, a lone male attended the TD Canada Trust branches in Three Hills, Hanna and Stettler and attempted to fraudulently transfer money from a victim’s account to another. The male provided fraudulent ID in the name of an account holder and sought to have $18 000 transferred to another account under the premise that it was to be used to help his daughter purchase a vehicle.

Information about this Fraud attempt was forwarded to the Stettler RCMP in mid September after the branches worked together with their security personnel to provide a comprehensive package outlining the failed attempts.

If the public recognizes this individual, they are encouraged to call the Stettler RCMP directly or call Crimestoppers.
