Almost $13,000 stolen from accountant’s FCIB account

Belize City police are tonight investigating the theft of almost thirteen thousand dollars from the bank account of a well-known accountant.  According to the fifty-eight-year-old resident of Albert Hoy Avenue, sometime between January second and twenty-fourth, someone cleared a total of twelve thousand, nine hundred and seventy-eight dollars from his First Caribbean Bank account using his credit card.  The withdrawals were reportedly made at the bank’s ATM machine at the San Cas Plaza without his permission.  Meanwhile, on Wednesday, eighteen-year-old Kendra Mejia, a resident of San Pedro Town, reported to police that she has been taken for a total of one thousand, nine hundred dollars by someone acting on her behalf.  Mejia says that on Tuesday, she found out from her fiancé that he had wired the money to her after receiving word from one Ethel Caliz that Mejia needed cash to purchase a new cell phone.  Mejia says she did not grant Caliz permission to request or receive money on her behalf.  Ethel Caliz is being sought for questioning.

    Why is accountant’s name not being released? If he is victim and not perpetrator what is the issue? Wouldn’t putting name out there help people recognize fraudulent use of his/her card?
