At 6 feet 1 inch tall, Rafael Ramos, 54, had little if any resemblance to the 68-year-old pop/rock icon, who stands only 5 feet 3 inches. Somehow, the thief had obtained Simon's Social Security Number and was in the possession of a forged driver's license and a credit card bearing the singer's name.
Police sources told the newspaper that Ramos took off running when the teller refused to honor the withdrawal. The cops quickly caught up with the grifter and charged him with attempted larceny. When questioned about the incident, Simon reportedly told the NYPD that he didn't know Ramos.
