    You are reporting bank robberies, however much more is stolen with forged checks and other fraud, yet no national data base, for financial institutions to use. If some one in the Eastern U.S. steals an ID and starts cashing checks with the ID, Financial Institutions, should be able to check on this in any other area of the country. On my job, bank robbery was a small amount although traumatic, crimes using fraud took large amounts.

    THE GRANDDAD BANDIT- Doesn't need a disguise or to hide his face. He knows as every senior citizen knows, we're invisible. Nobody but other senior citizens look at us. My bet is, he has to rob banks to put gas in his RV to get to his next RV campground. We may be invisible but we still have amazing youthful minds.
