Long Beach detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of fraudulently obtaining a $15,000 loan from a central Long Beach lending company, Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) officials said.
Authorities said that on Tuesday, June 2, the man applied for an auto loan using an altered Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Certificate of Title form, along with a fraudulent driver’s license, utility bill, proof of insurance, and work pay stubs.
He also used an unsuspecting victim’s name, date of birth and social security number, according to police.
The lending company approved the loan and the suspect then received the loan proceeds in cash from a money transfer business in Torrance, officials said.
The individual in the photographs provided by LBPD is suspected of committing multiple felony crimes including identity theft, forgery, perjury, conspiracy, grand theft and burglary.
Anyone who recognizes this individual, or has information regarding this incident is urged to contact Long Beach Police Financial Crimes Detective Dominick Scaccia at 562.570.7391.
