ATM / Banking Fraud

 The Saskatoon Police Service is reminding residents to be conscious and aware of ATM/Banking Fraud.
In incidents that have been reported across the city, the victim is approached by a lone male who asks them to deposit an envelope into the ATM and withdraw their own cash to cover it. It is later discovered that the envelope was empty. In other cases, the suspect gives them fraudulent cheques and asks the victim to cash them for him. Police have recorded at least eight similar incidents in the last two weeks.
The suspect is described as between 5’8″ and 6’0″ in height and 170 lbs. He is Caucasian and has a number of marks on his face.
Saskatoon Police would like to remind the public to never complete a transaction on someone else’s behalf.
Victims of similar incidents are encouraged to contact Saskatoon Police at 975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
