This woman is a suspect in a fraud of almost $40

Fraudster nets thousands from Langley victim

A suspected con artist swiped thousands from a bank account.

Over four days, an unknown woman managed to steal almost $40,000 from the bank account of a Langley resident, police say.

The fraud took place at multiple banks in Mission, Richmond, and Langley between April 14 and 17, said Cpl. Holly Largy.

Police released a photo of the suspect this week and are asking for public help in identifying her.

The suspect managed to impersonate the real account holder, Largy said.

Police did not say how the woman came into possession of the victim’s banking information.

Anyone with information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). You can also reach CrimeStoppers at www.solvecrime.ca or by texting BCTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637).
