Car salesman accused of ripping off customers

Albany--  A former salesman is accused of stealing customers' checks and credit card numbers and racking up high bills. |

30-year old Sean Nix is charged with forgery and identity fraud. Investigators say the former Albany Mazda salesman stole checks from James Griggs' car while it was being serviced in February and wrote two $500 checks.

Customer Sue Freeman says Nix also used her credit card number in January to pay his cell phone bills of nearly $400 dollars.

"I had checked my credit card online and there had been a charge on there that I didn't understand. I called to question it and thought it was taken care of. About a week later, I pulled my account up again and there were two more charges on it," said Freeman.

A friend of  Nix,  33 year-old Vedra Fowler, is also charged with forgery for filling out and cashing one of the stolen checks.
