Murfreesboro, TN - Detectives from the Murfreesboro Police Department are actively investigating a potential crime ring involving the fraudulent use of fake IDs to withdraw thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims' bank accounts.
The latest incident occurred at the Redstone Financial Credit Union (RFCU) located on Medical Center Parkway on April 18th. An unidentified individual presented a counterfeit driver's license bearing his photo but containing the personal details of the account holder. In a series of transactions, the suspect managed to withdraw $9,000 from the account. Upon discovering the fraudulent activity, the victim, hailing from Alabama, promptly closed the account.
Just three days prior, on April 15th, another man reportedly utilized two distinct fraudulent IDs, each featuring his photo but containing the personal information of separate victims. The suspect successfully withdrew a total of $7,700 from accounts at RFCU branches on S. Rutherford Blvd. and Medical Center Parkway.
According to Public Safety Public Information Officer Larry Flowers, the suspects display a level of expertise that suggests they are not amateurs in this criminal enterprise. Flowers noted that the high-quality counterfeit IDs presented by the suspects did not raise any suspicion during the transactions.
"If you can assist with identifying these men, please contact Detective Ray Daniel at (629) 201-5512 or Detective Jessica Rice at (629) 201-5550," urged Flowers.
Residents are advised to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity related to fraudulent withdrawals to the authorities promptly.
