Edmonton Police say a group of people have defrauded hundreds of thousands of dollars from more than 25 Albertans, including seven from Edmonton.

The fake bank drafts are made to look like CIBC drafts and are used to buy newer vehicles and other expensive items. The persons responsible for the fake bank drafts have been known to show counterfeit picture identification.

Police believe there could be more victims out there who haven't yet reported the crime.

They are asking anyone who has become a victim of a fraudulent bank draft to notify them.
