RCMP in Three HIlls, Hanna and Stettler are looking for a con man who tried to steal from a customer of TD Canada Trust.
On June 2 the man went to branches in all three town as he tried to transfer money from a victim's bank account to another.
Police say he provided fraudulent ID in the name of an account holder and sought to have $18,000 transferred to another account under the premise that it was to be used to help his daughter purchase a vehicle. He was not successful.
Information about the attempted fraud was forwarded to RCMP in Stettler in September after the branches worked together with their security personnel to provide a comprehensive package outlining the failed attempts.
