The woman told the MPD that Chase Bank advised her they had video footage of an unidentified subject walking into their Memorial Boulevard branch to make a cash withdrawal. 

According to the victim, the representative with Chase told her the unknown person gave the teller a Texas drivers license with her name and address on it. Then, they showed the teller a Chase Bank debit card, also matching the victim’s name. Next, the culprit attempted to withdraw cash from the victims’ bank account.
