Suspect sought in fraud attempt at Lake Country bank

Crime Stoppers Central Okanagan says the attempted fraud took place Nov. 26, 2020

Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers is asking the public for help identifying a suspect in a fraud attempt at a Lake Country bank late last year.

The attempted fraud took place on Nov. 26, according to Crime Stoppers. Around noon, a man approached one of the tellers at the unnamed bank and tried to retrieve account information, providing a driver’s licence as identification.

The man was denied access as he did not provide the required information. The legitimate customer was from another province, had not been in the area at the time and was in possession of his identification.

The person of interest is described as a white man, tall with white hear who was wearing a black jacket with a black mask.

Anyone who may be able to identify the suspect is asked to contact the Lake Country RCMP or report an anonymous tip atwww.crimestoppers.net.
