A Lawrence County man fell victim to a scam after a female asked him online to deposit checks.


The Lawrenceburg police department had a complaint filed by a 53 year old man who had been the victim of a scam.

The victim stated he had been talking to a woman online for around 6 months when she asked if she could send him checks to deposit then he could send her money when she needed it.

After receiving several checkbooks in the mail from a man named Allan Wu the victim deposited a check for $4,500, and then put the money on a cashier's check mailing it to a Chicago address.

His bank notified him shortly after letting him know the check would not process, and they needed compensation for the amount.

The victim contacted Allan Wu by text message who stated he would get the account fixed, and authorities advised the victim to gather as much information as possible for the current investigation.
