MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Robert Saks is behind bars for orchestrating an international bank fraud scheme that stole $34 million. At the heart of the scam was a “lead list” that included bank customer names and account information.
“They were using the list to charge and withdraw amounts from the consumers` bank account without their knowledge,” U.S. Postal Inspector Daniel Forrester said.
Postal inspectors determined Saks and 15 others withdrew funds from over 100,000 accounts — mostly small amounts, to avoid suspicion.
