An Officer was dispatched to the front lobby of the police station to speak with a resident who informed the officer that he had been a victim of Fraud. The man had become aware that his bank and credit card had been compromised at which point he had attended his banking institution. The Financial Institution advised him to contact police and indicated they will be doing a parallel internal investigation into the matter, and hopefully the approximate total of $100,000 that was taken from his account will be reimbursed to the client.
Fraudulent activity can happen to anyone. The LaSalle Police Service strongly encourages you to review your finances and statements on a regular basis. It’s highly advisable to establish proper controls and notifications for your eBanking accounts, and seek the banks help to set these up.
