Troopers, Officers intercept fraud attempt at Southbury bank

Two men have been arrested for attempting to use a fake Rhode Island license and a fake credit card to defraud someone.  State Police were dispatched to a Chase Bank on Main Street South in Southbury last Monday on a report of a possible fraud in progress. Southbury Emergency Dispatch reported that two black males were in the lobby and that the staff of other branches of Chase Bank had flagged the men as acting suspicious.  44-year old Conrad Carvey of Oakville was attempting to use the fake credentials to link the victim's account to that of 28-year old Victor Ventura's.  Once the accounts were linked, the money could have been funneled from the victim's account into the Waterbury man's.  Both men said they were being paid by a third party and had no intention of stealing from the victim.  The victim was contacted and made aware of the incident so that he could take the necessary precautions moving forward. Carvey was charged and released on bond to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on December 14th. Ventura was charged and released for a December 10th court appearance.
