Police Warning: Check Cashing Scam

Watch out for a check cashing scam that’s making a return.

Homeless and low-income day laborers were convinced to cash fraudulent checks between December 2014 and February 2015.

Some banks lost more than $120,000.

Police say they’ve received information that the scam is again headed to our region.

They advise against cashing checks for acquaintances or third parties.
