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.

A woman who wanted to deposit a suspicious $5,407.62 check at a Darien bank provided suspicious identification to a teller, then left the bank when the teller went to speak to a manager, Darien police said. Police described the incident this way, based on what they were told by the teller:

The teller at HSBC Bank, 151 Post Road, said a woman filled out a deposit slip at the bank and also wanted to withdraw $5,000 of the money. The type on the check appeared to be crooked, which raised the teller’s suspicions. When asked for her identification, the woman produced a New Jersey driver’s license. The date of birth on the ID didn’t match the appearance of the woman, the teller thought.
