Authorities are offering a $1,000 reward for

A resourceful id thief in one single day managed to
withdraw the equivalent of most people's entire year's
income from banks in Arizona.
But how could this happen so easily and quickly?
The identity thief had all of his victim's
personal information - even including the
man's driver's license but with the thief's
photo on it instead.
This bold identity thief evidently walked into the
banks and simply changed the legitimate
account holder's mailing address and
even the victim's personal identification
number (pin) used typically to access ATM
Even more surprising, was this identity thief does
not reside in Arizona, but rather lives in Florida.
Apparently he was in Arizona visiting -or- should we
say on a "shopping" trip.
The police believe this identity thief either had the
help of a bank insider or knew the victim first hand.
