Does Homeland Security review every bank account opened?
Hmmm... When you open a bank account do they run the required documents thru the computer to prove they are valid? And hunt you down and arrest you if any of the documents can't be verified???
A 27-year-old transient man was arrested Wednesday afternoon on the 3300 block of East Pecos Road on suspicion of forgery, possession of a forged instrument and false reporting to law enforcement, police reported.
He was arrested after he opened a checking and savings account at the Arizona Central Credit Union using a false name and social security number, according to a police report.
He also used a false Arizona driver’s license issued on Aug. 26 and lied to police about his personal information, police reported.
He also had a warrant issued by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for other fraud schemes in Tempe, police reported.
He was transported to Tempe City Jail on one count of forgery, one count of possession of a forged instrument and one count of false reporting to law enforcement, police reported.
