Million Dollar Jamaican Identity Theft
A man is accused of identity theft after withdrawing
over $1,000,000 from a Jamaican credit union and
then took out a $800,000 loan using just a driver's
license all of which happened in only 2 months.
According to the Jamaica Observer,
The accused, 27-year-old Damion Deer
of no fixed address, has been charged
with several counts of forgery, uttering
forged document, obtaining money by
means of forged documents, attempting
to obtain money by mean of forged documents
and conspiracy to defraud.
So, our tip for today is for any consumers who still believe identity
theft is something that only happens to other people. Guard well
your savings. Make sure to get your bank or credit union to put
in place "stop loss" amounts which will require more rigorous
background checks prior to major withdrawals.
