A nervous, “older” man who tried to withdraw $2,300 from TD Bank at 55 Post Road gave the teller a phony driver’s license that made the teller suspicious, then walked out, police said. Minutes later, a call was made to police.

Darien police described what happened with this account:

At about 5 p.m. on Friday, July 26 (not closing time — the bank is open until 7 p.m. on Fridays), the man went into the bank and presented the teller with a Florida driver’s license, which was accurate except for the photo, which was of the suspect.

The teller, suspicious about the ID, asked the man several questions to verify his identity. The signature the bank had on file for the account was different from the man’s signature.

When the man was asked for a debit card to verify his account, he turned and walked out.

All the information the man provided was verified as belonging to an account holder at the bank.
