Richmond: Mounties in Richmond have issued a public warning about the alleged use of fraudulent bank drafts to buy vehicles in the Metro Vancouver city.
A statement from the R-C-M-P says an investigation into a complaint about a stolen vehicle at an automotive business led to the arrest of a suspect along with the recovery of three vehicles
that had been purchased fraudulently.
Police say they have since identified five additional vehicles connected to the scheme, with a total value of nearly 450-thousand-dollars.
A statement from Corporal Melissa Lui with the Mounties’ economic crime unit says police believe there may be additional victims who aren’t aware that a fake bank draft may have been used to buy their vehicle.
