A Salina man’s stolen identity is used to scam a lender out of $1,000.
According to Police Captain Mike Sweeney, 55-year-old James Reynolds contacted police this week, after a call from Speedy Cash, 1220 W. Crawford.
Staff at the Salina location called Reynolds to inform him he had not made a payment on a loan he had been approved for on December 2nd over the internet.
Police say someone used portions of Reynolds’ personal information to apply for a $1,000 loan.
Speedy Cash then sent the money to an account via Wells Fargo in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
