Debit card used in fraud: police

Barrie police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a man wanted for suspected fraud.
On June 11 police say the man entered a local bank and provided false identification to obtain a new debit card. He then, say police, created a new pin number and raised the overdraft limit of the victim’s card. The suspect then used the debit card to withdraw Canadian and American currency.
