During the week prior to 11-27-12, the victim received multiple phone calls from an unidentified male who asked for help with an in-house investigation at a local bank branch.

The victim did as instructed. She withdrew the cash from her bank and drove to the Pacific View Mall where she parked and waited. A man did approach her vehicle and asked her for the money. The victim handed over the money then drove home. The victim contacted her bank later that afternoon and discovered that she had been the victim of a scam.
