Albany -- Dougherty County Police are warning South Georgia businesses to be on the lookout for counterfeit checks. Three businesses lost more than six thousand dollars over the weekend.
Dougherty County Police say the checks are copies of real payroll checks from Lipsey Mechanical, an Albany company, or Frank Crum Incorporated, a Clearwater Florida company.
Friday five people cashed 12 phony checks at Jaxx Liquor Store, Warehouse Package Store, and the Wash House. Investigators say someone is making the counterfeit checks and paying local people to cash them, and say businesses should be cautious of cashing payroll checks.
"I would recommend contacting whatever company the check is written for, to make sure this person works for that company, and they are an actual employee," said DCP Capt. Jimmy Sexton.
The Company telephone numbers on the counterfeit checks are also phony. If you have any information about this phony check ring, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
