Arrest Made in Local Check Fraud Scheme

As the League has been reporting, we’ve seen an uptick in fraud in recent weeks, especially as it relates to check fraud.

While there has been little good news to report on the fraud front as of late, a positive development occurred earlier this week. A suspect involved in a check fraud scheme who used a $20,000 Cumberland County FCU cashier’s check to purchase a vehicle has been arrested! The individual was in possession of the vehicle at the time of their arrest.

The U.S. Secret Service is continuing to investigate this case to determine if the individual also was involved in printing the fraudulent check.

If the League receives additional information concerning this investigation or other fraud developments, we will continue to keep you informed.
