Man Uses Woman’s Banking Information to Illegally Withdraw Funds from 31st Street ATM, police say


Feb. 23, 2016 By Christian Murray

A man who obtained the bank information of a 28-year-old female made an unauthorized withdrawal of nearly $650 from the woman’s account at an Astoria ATM last month, according to the NYPD.

The alleged perpetrator, described as having a beard and wearing a dark colored jacket, made the unauthorized withdrawal at the ATM inside the Investors Bank branch located at 23-02 31st Street at about 8:25 pm Thursday, Jan. 28, according to police.

The suspect withdrew the funds with a card—although the victim had her debit card in her possession at the time of the transaction, police said.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

I think this guy used to live on Astoria Park. Fuad. A bunch of those Steinway folks are petty thieves. A had a neighbor who moved up there to be closer to his people and he stole my credit card from my mailbox and spent $500 at Ali Baba Jewelry which i have long suspected as a criminal front. Can’t wait for Trump to do a complete sweep through of Steinway. We’ll have much more housing available…with less theft. I honestly believe most of them are cool, not terrorists but an awful lot of them are really just petty little thieves. Its always the morrocans.
