Abington Police arrested a Philadelphia man late last month after he set up an appointment at Susquehanna Bank to discuss his debit card, which stopped working.

Jamal Phillip Dall Fuller, 30, of North 60th Street, was arrested Nov. 19 at the bank’s Jenkintown branch in the 100 block of Old York Road at about 11:15 a.m. after setting up an appointment to speak with bank officials regarding his debit card.

According to police, Fuller opened an account with Susquehanna Bank in May by depositing $30; he then deposited about $4,600 in counterfeit checks between July 1 and July 5 and made about $3,200 in cash withdrawals up until July 6 at several Susquehanna Bank locations.

Each of the counterfeit checks was made payable to Fuller from a man named “Harry” from Upper Darby, police said.

Susquehanna Bank officials learned that the checks were counterfeit on July 25 and closed the account, according to the report. On Nov. 15, Fuller agreed to meet with bank officials.

According to the report, Fuller admitted to being part of scheme to defraud the bank by depositing counterfeit checks.

Fuller, who does not appear to have a criminal history, was charged with forgery, conspiracy and theft.
