Be on the lookout for fraudulent checks

Posted: Updated:
MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

A warning for businesses to be on the lookout for fraudulent checks.

Forgers cashed at least six fraudulent checks recently in Moultrie, including three at Oxly's Grocery Store.

They look like real Georgia Department of Transportation payroll checks for about $500, but they are not.

Officers say these fraudulent checks are different than most they see.

"You would not think that the DOT, you would find any fraudulent checks, with Department of Transportation, a government entity like that, so that is why it seems so convincing," says Cpl. Dave Underwood, Moultrie Police Investigator.

Police say merchants need to be on the lookout for these fake checks.

If you see one, call police.
