A fraudster got away with nearly $20,000 cash using a Langley man’s misplaced cheque book.

Langley RCMP have released a surveillance photo of the man in question and are hoping someone can provide information leading to his arrest.

On June 3, Langley RCMP received a report of a fraud that had taken place between April 25 and May 30. It would appear that a cheque book belonging to the victim fell into the wrong hands and the suspect used the cheques to withdraw nearly $20,000 from the victim’s line of credit.

It wasn’t until the account holder was contacted by the bank to advise that his line of credit account had entered into overdraft that he realized what had happened.

Police have obtained surveillance photographs of a person of interest possibly associated to this investigation and would like the public’s assistance to establish his identity.

If you have information contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
