Victims Deal With Instances Of Forgery Involving Their Bank Accounts

   Criminal investigations were launched late last week into at least two forgery cases that involve tampering with the bank accounts of innocent victims.

   In one case, officers with the Lawrenceburg Police Department were instructed by officials with Lawrence Central Dispatch Friday to contact a woman who resides in Gainesville, Florida. The woman reported that someone had obtained her routing and account numbers for her checking account, made several fake checks, then passed them in various locations, including Lawrenceburg.

   The victim told officers that the checks bore her personal information as well as that of her banking institution, but that they also bore the heading “Laborfinders LLC, 3562 Lee Johnson Parkway, Nashville, TN 37235.

   Locally, the victim said the culprit cashed one check at the Lawrenceburg Walmart store on North Locust Avenue at 3:39 p.m. on May 27, 2010. The check, in the amount of $635.25, was written to “Joseph Andrew Moore, 2558 Woodbury Court, Columbia, TN 38401.”

   A resident of Lawrenceburg’s Fourth Street reported a similar incident the same day. He reported someone had generated a fraudulent check bearing his name and checking account information. The check was made payable to “Freedom Subscription” in the amount of $8.42. He had noticed the crime, he said, when he was looking over his monthly statement.

   Both cases remain under investigation at the present time by agents with the department’s Criminal Investigation Division. Anyone who might have information regarding the crimes is urged to contact the department at 762-2276.
