Laval police have posted a bank branch surveillance photo of a woman they suspect committed fraud using a stolen credit card.
Between March 27 and April 17, the victim of the fraud had ordered a credit card while he was travelling outside Quebec. Upon his return he discovered the new card was not among mail he received during that period. However, at the beginning of May, the victim nevertheless received a statement for the new card, indicating it had already been used to make two $500 cash withdrawals.
