Counterfeit Check Ring Busted; Defrauded "Hundreds," Paid Off Bank Tellers
When the cops arrested one of the ringleaders back in February, they found him in his car with a laptop, which was plugged into the car's cigarette lighter and also connected to a printer. It contained check-making software, information on over 286 bank accounts, templates of counterfeit checks which had been cashed at various banks, and the names and addresses of over 950 check cashing soldiers.
Prosectutors say they still don't know how much the men stole from the thirteen other banks targeted by the scheme. These banks want to keep a low profile, we're told, since in this economy, they are afraid to freak out their customers. Probably too late. Image via Asia Biz Blog.
