Deputies are asking the public for assistance in identifying two females who have been cashing fraudulent checks at two High Desert banks located at 16990 Bear Valley RD Victorville / 19095 Bear Valley RD Apple Valley.
The suspects have been targeting Bank of America customers as they are exiting the building. They ask the customer to cash a check for about $5000 and provide them with a story as to why they cannot cash the check on their own. The customer then cashes the check and gives the money to the suspect.
A few days later the bank discovers the checks are fraudulent and debits the money from the customers account.
Suspect 1 has been described as a black female about 18 years old, 5’03” 105 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. Suspect 2 has been described as a black female 30-35 years old.
