Idea

They should preload those ATM machines with tracer Bills so that when they use a reported stolen card, they will be caught in the act.

Not sure why drive-up ATMs aren't set up to take a pic of the license plate...

This might seem bad and out of control, however....

There is no way in this world you can ever get away from karma. It's right behind you, Mr. Thief.

I'm a little confused....the time stamps on the photos are less than 2 hours apart....you can only withdraw a predetermined amount in a single 24 hour period. The timestamps show this individual on 10/15/12...the article appears on 10/31/12 and the total is now withdrawn is nearly $6K???
What's up with that?

Crime does pay. Ask the people who are running

ARC. Fraud you say? An intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud. Use of deceptive practices.

Synonym for government?

the REST of the story please?

Something is missing or incorrect with this story. I am a SRP banking customer and I cant withdraw anywhere near that daily.

My limit from SRP is $400 banking day. From Friday until Monday am is considered ONE bank day on my account. I can't understand the $6000 figure.

Maybe the crook is cashing

Maybe the crook is cashing checks rather than using the ATM? But it would still seem the account would have been locked down?

Dear Expert Know-it-alls......

In no part of this article does it say an ATM was used. Nor does it indicate the method or the time frame during which this series of withdrawals took place.

There are cameras at every teller window in every financial institution, including each drive thru lane. The picture clearly says “Lane 1 surveillance,” not “ATM.”

The point of the article, for those of you who did not read it before posting a comment, is fraudulent activity occurred when the suspect presented false documentation in effort to appear his withdrawals were valid.
