Man Used Fraudulent Debit Card To Steal Nearly $5,000

POMPANO BEACH (CBSMiami) – It took only a matter of minutes for a well dressed man to steal nearly $5,000 from a North Bay Village man’s bank account using a fraudulent debit card.

Now the Broward Sheriff’s Office has released a surveillance picture of the man in hopes that someone recognizes him and gives Crime Stoppers a call.

On April 19th, just after 2 p.m., the man walked into a Walmart in Pompano Beach and used a “fraudulently obtained version” of Joe Green’s debit card to purchase $4,800 worth of money orders and withdrawing $100 cash, according to the sheriff’s office. The entire transaction took approximately three minutes.

The sheriff’s office said two days before the transaction, someone called Chase Bank to change Green’s pin number and increase his credit limit.

Anyone with information on the person in the surveillance picture is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
