United States Postal Inspection Service

A Victim's Story (Continued)

Several large fraudulent balance transfers checks wiped out the victim’s entire savings and the bank would not honor a claim by the victim. A Postal Inspector acting on the victim’s complaint recognized the similarity to a current case being investigated, made some comparison to existing evidence and associated this victim's case with a current fraud scheme. The Inspector contacted the bank and they agreed to replenish the victim’s life savings.

As a result of the Inspectors keen observation and swift action, the victim’s life savings were returned to her.

Below is an excerpt from a card received by the Inspector.
