Fraudulent checks circulating with CUs name
MEADVILLE, PA. (7/28/09)--Fraudulent checks bearing the Meadville (Pa.) Area FCU name and a distorted logo are being mailed to various individuals nationwide. The check is made payable to the individual in the amount of $2,950.00 with a date of July 9. The item is printed on burgundy check stock and at first glance may appear valid. However, a closer look reveals that MidAtlantic is misspelled and other items are placed in the wrong locations on the face of the check (Life is a Highway July 27). The checks are accompanied by a letter from Greenwater Mystery Shopping. The recipient is asked to complete certain tasks within 48 hours. A request to call its office is listed first. Then, the recipient is asked to go to a local Sears or Wal-Mart and send a money gram to someone in Canada. Meadville Area FCU is gathering evidence to assist the U.S. Postal Investigators in their pursuit of the perpetrators. Anyone with relevant information should contact the credit union.
