Attempt to Defraud Banks Thwarted


After a suspicious customer frequented a Petach Tikvah bank, the bank’s quick-witted manager headed straight to the authorities, thwarting a potentially horrific defrauding attempt.

Through means such as identity theft, opening a new bank account under a stolen name and identity, taking out an exceedingly large loan and disappearing, the suspect under investigation could have potentially defrauded the bank of hundreds of thousands of Shekels.
