MIT Police are on the hunt for a woman they say defrauded an MIT student twice with the old could-you-cash-this routine:
On August 4, 2013 a MIT student was approached on the St. by a female asking him to cash a check for her. They took the MBTA to victim’s bank in Harvard Sq. where he deposited her check into his account using an ATM and then gave her the cash.
The following day 8/5 the female reached out to him again asking him to cash another check. They met at the same bank and he gave her the cash again. 2 days letter the checks bounced.
If she looks familiar, contact MIT detectives at 617-324-8140.
