Bank Examiner Scam Review
(Vancouver, BC, Canada)
I received a call from a Constable Kelly who was investigating some woman posing as me to try to get money from my Royal Bank account via Visa. I was to call the 1-800 number on the back of my credit card. When I called this number, someone called Spencer said the call had been forwarded to him, because there was an attempt at identity fraud.
He seemed to have enough information about me including the name of my son. We were to catch this person when she went to the bank at 3 pm to withdraw $15,000. The bank was on to this scheme and would give her the money in counterfit $100 bills. I was to go to the bank beforehand to withdraw the money for safekeeping and to make note of the tellers and traffic.
I could only get $5 grand at one time and arranged to have $10K for a cash pickup 4 days from now (April 4, 2018). When I returned home, Spencer phoned and I told him I had $5K cash. He said he would call me at 4 pm to let me know if the scheme worked. I called Visa and found that no one by the name of Spencer was employed for that morning, so I talked to Lisa and another person who advised me that it was a scam, and not to answer the phone.
The phone rang 3 times at 4 pm, and once this morning and I have not answered. I might try to tape the call. I have informed the bank manager and checked my accounts to see if any withdrawals occurred.
