There is a counterfeit check cashing ring operating along the I-20 corridor in northwest LA. The criminals are stealing commercial checks from business mailboxes and using the information to create counterfeit payroll checks. They are recruiting homeless people, putting them in dress shirts and ties and then sending them into banks to cash the checks for them. Businesses and banks in Monroe, Bossier City and Minden have already been affected this week. Businesses should be very careful about leaving commercial checks in their mailboxes for pickup. Financial institutions should be extra cautious when cashing large commercial checks for non-customers, especially if they appear dirty or disheveled but are wearing new button up shirts with ties.
If you have had contact with or think you may be a victim of this counterfeit check cashing ring, contact your Parish Sheriff’s department. ... See MoreSee Less
