On October 1st, 2020, at 12:45pm, an unknown male wearing a dark coloured jacket walked into BMO Selkirk Branch and attempted to withdraw $7000 without any bank cards. The male presented to the bank teller what appears to be a fake BC driver’s license and SIN card with the name Jean Michel BASLEY on them. The suspect appeared to be in his 40’s or 50’s and was wearing a medical mask but appeared to match the picture on the license. When the bank teller entered the client name on their system, an alert came up informing the teller that the client may be a victim of fraudulent activities. The suspect was unable to answer some follow up security questions, and ended up leaving the branch without the BC driver’s license and SIN card.
