Murfreesboro Police Investigate Bank Fraud Crime Ring

Murfreesboro police are investigating a possible crime ring involved in fraudulent bank withdrawals.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – (April 25, 2024) Murfreesboro Police Department Fraud detectives are investigating a possible crime ring where a group of people are using fake IDs and personal account information to fraudulently withdraw thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims’ bank accounts. The latest incident occurred at the Redstone Financial Credit Union (RFCU) on Medical Center Parkway on April 18.

An unidentified man produced a fake driver’s license with his photo, but the name, address, and date of birth of the account holder. He withdrew $9,000 in multiple transactions. The victim, who is from Alabama, closed the account after realizing money was fraudulently withdrawn.

On April 15, a different man reportedly used two different fraudulent IDs with his photo, but the personal information of two different victims and withdrew $7,700 from the two accounts. The fraudulent withdrawals occurred at the RFCU S. Rutherford Blvd. and Medical Center locations.

“It doesn’t appear these men are amateurs, they are comfortable making these fraudulent transactions,” said Public Safety Public Information Officer Larry Flowers. “Since the IDs were so well produced, there were no red flags that the transactions were fraudulent.”

If you can assist with identifying these men, please contact Detective Ray Daniel at (629) 201-5512 or Detective Jessica Rice at (629) 201-5550.
