The public’s help is sought to identify a woman who allegedly fraudulently withdrew $4,000 from a Murrieta bank branch.
The woman pictured in these surveillance photos released by the Murrieta Police Department is suspected of using fake identification to withdraw the funds at 2:02 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, at Bank of America, 23781 Washington Ave.
Murrieta police say that to complete the transaction, she used fake identification including a social security number matching an actual Bank of America customer and a fraudulent driver’s license which contained her picture but had the victim’s personal information.
The suspect allegedly returned to the same bank branch at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30 to attempt a second transaction; however, that time she was denied, according to police.
She is described as a black female in her late 40s or early 50s, weighing approximately 200 pounds, with gray-brown short hair, an acne-scarred face and skin growths near her right eye.
Anyone with information about the suspect was asked to contact Detective Sgt. Phil Gomez by calling 951-461-6356.
