Nanaimo RCMP are hoping the public can help identify a suspect wanted for charging upwards of $25,000 of credit on an unsuspecting victim.
Police say the person allegedly took out a credit card and a line of credit on the victim, both opened on Sunday at the BMO bank in the 6900-block of Island Highway North.
The victim reported his loss to the police and said he has no knowledge of the person and was unaware of the transaction until the bank called him.
Investigators obtained surveillance video showing the suspect completing the line of credit application at the bank.
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
