The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is seeking to identify a suspect in connection to check fraud and theft.
A news release from the sheriff’s office states an unknown black male deposited two checks into the victim’s bank account and then used her lost ATM card to withdraw the money minutes later.
The victim reported that she wrote the PIN number on the sleeve of the card and did not realize she lost it until she discovered the two fraudulent transactions.
It is believed the suspect got into a gold 1990’s model Mercedes Benz with a sunroof following the theft.
Anyone with information can contact Investigator Randy Chambers at (706) 541-3901.
