ID Theft Nets $33K from Darien Couple's Bank Account

Information on a debit card was used to take more than $33,000 from a Darien couple's bank account.

ID Theft Nets $33K from Darien Couple's Bank Account
A Darien couple is out $33,236 after bank account information was stolen -- possibly from a debit card they still have.

The theft was reported to Darien police on Jan. 8 after 75 fraudulent withdrawals had been made from the account. The last three were $503 each, from an ATM in Brooklyn.

The last time the debit card was used was on Oct. 24 at a Metro-North station in New York City, and the first fraudulent withdrawal came on Oct. 28, for $300. Police speculate that information from the debit card was somehow "cloned" when it was used.
