09-30-2019 - 1:30 PM – A representative of a Harristown Road law firm reported that the firm discovered a total of 15 fraudulent transactions on their business account with TD Bank. While it is unknown how the actors gained the firm’s account information, a total of just over $70,000 was transferred by electronic means. Upon notification the bank was able to reverse some, but not all, of the transactions. The detective bureau is currently reviewing the matter.
10-01-2019 - 2:44 PM – A Glen Rock man reported an unauthorized $14,000 transaction discovered on his Bank of America checking account. It is not known where or when the transaction occurred, and the bank has been notified. The detective bureau is reviewing the matter.
10-05-2019 - 2:43 PM – A Glen Rock woman reported that she had fallen victim to a scam when she received a phone call from an individual claiming to be a bank representative attempting to verify her credit card information. The caller was so convincing that she provided them with her full credit card number and expiration date. At this point the woman became suspicious and contacted the bank who confirmed that the call was fraudulent and had been received from a spoofed phone number. The credit card in question has since been canceled.
