-An identity theft occurred recently involving an Aylmer woman. Someone obtained her drivers licence and bank card numbers – not the cards -and used them in transactions in Toronto. She was alerted by an NSF notice at her bank machine. She realized the latest transactions were not hers. A bank where bogus cheques were used to withdraw the money is examining their video tapes for a suspect.
