Sheriff Gives Insight On Bad Checks Speaks, Shows Slides From Local Cases FENTON * Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst gave members of the Fenton Community Club a close- up look at some of the methods of check forgers and bad check artists, in a talk and slide presentation after a meeting Monday evening at the Fenton Cafe, About 25 members were present for the dinner and program. Bob Mitchell, new club president, presided. The Kossuth County Sheriff said that check troubles divided themselves into four categories (1) checks written with no bank accounts, (2) forged checks, (3) insufficient fund checks, and (4) stolen checks, P. 0. money orders and bank drafts. The sheriff pointed out that in many cases bad check cases could be avoided if persons receiving the checks asked for adequate identification In the case of strangers, but sometimes even this is rot enough, as driver's licenses, etc. are often stolen and used by check passers for I. D. purposes. One of the pitfalls found is the case where a well-known name is signed to the check, a person with integrity. This, however, does not mean that the person CASHING the check is legitimate; 'the well-known name may be forged, He told of one case where a $470 cashier's check was cashed by a bank in the area. The check was on a printed check form carrying the name of a bank purporting to be in Chicago. Only thing was, there was no such 'bank. Authorities are still looking for the man who cashed the check. Use of a check protector doesn't necessarily mean the check is good, the Sheriff pointed out. Check protectors are stolen, and actually have only one value, to prevent raising or changing amounts originally written. They are no guarantee that the signatures or accounts are 0. K. The Sheriffs office is not a collection- agency, either, but where informations are filed in due process of law, the sheriffs department acts to bring the offender into court 6-Algena (la.)
