She phoned and claimed to be a fraud investigator. She was after their money.

A woman who called herself Ashley and claimed to be a fraud investigator for Bank of America had very detailed information when she phoned account holders.

She sometimes knew their bank card numbers, most recent transactions and current bank account balances, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says.

When Ashley told at least five victims in Delray Beach and Boynton Beach that their accounts were compromised by fraudsters, they didn’t know she was talking about herself.

One woman has been arrested in this fraud case so far, and the Sheriff’s Office is reminding the public to be wary of phone calls from people impersonating bankers.
