DELAFIELD — Delafield police are investigating a quick-change scam that occurred around 1:40 p.m. on Thursday, May 19th at the Waukesha State Bank branch located on Golf Road near Greywood Lane.

Police say two unidentified men, possibly of Middle Eastern descent, requested tellers at the bank to change $2,400 in $50 bills into $100 bills.  When that was done, the subjects requested the money in Euros.

After being told that the branch did not have access to Euros, the suspects asked for the money back in $50 bills.  When the money was passed from the suspect to the teller, the suspect retained six $100 bills.

The suspects were described as:

  1. Man, Middle Eastern, 20-30 years old, wearing jeans and a track suit top.
  2. Man, Middle Eastern, 40-50 years old, wearing a dark suit.  This suspect may have gold upper teeth.

Police say both suspects spoke English until it was convenient to speak some other unknown language.

The suspects left the bank in a maroon minivan with unknown plates.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Delafield police at (262)646-6240 ext 2.

    The teller should be fired for not counting the money. This is like the old shell game – oldest trick in the book. Any reasonable business person would suspect this scam as soon as the transaction changed from US bills to Euros.

    Typical woman beating falafel eaters. They yell and shout in their own language when they have a casual talk.
