CU robbers impersonate police to swindle elderly woman
CINCINNATI (7/29/09)--Two credit union robbers impersonated police to swindle an elderly woman out of $8,400 last week. A 96-year-old woman told police that a man and woman claiming to be police officers came to her home and asked her to go with them to Cinco Family Financial Center CU in Cincinnati. They told her that they were conducting an investigation on her account. Because the woman had lost money in her account several years ago, she went with them to the credit union (The Cincinnati Enquirer July 24). The robbers asked the woman to provide them with blank checks. She complied, and the man and woman took $8,400 from the woman’s account. After they took the money, they put the woman in a cab so she could return home. The woman was not injured. Earlier this month, three men claiming to be police officers kidnapped a 92-year-old man and forced him to withdraw $4,500 from his bank account. Police do not know if the incidents are related, the newspaper said. Cinco Family Financial Center CU has $120 million in assets.
