PELHAM, N.Y. A Corlies Avenue woman was the victim of fraud as someone took a combined $3,325 from her bank account on six different dates, the Pelham Manor Police said.
The woman called police Monday, police said, after she received a call from AMEX Servicing, which wanted information to confirm her identity. When she refused, a company supervisor got on the phone and explained that the thief had been using an American Express card to get deposits from her Citibank account and then make purchases.
He told her that the thief took out $75 on March 27, $500 on April 4, $600 on May 2, $650 on May 23, $750 on June 11 and $750 on July 2, police said.
