f he Uppef Pes Mdiaes-Bepublican, July fy 1930 CHECK ARTISTS Several Business Are Victims of ¥ oufig Lady Last Week. CHECKS ALL DRAWN FOR SAME AMOUNT. Etttmetsburg Merchants Abo Taken in , the Sathe bay. Lady Said to '.'•-. be Clew. Estherville Enterprise: At least seven business men of this city wete taken In last Friday by a smooth young lady who Issued forged checks and passed them for merchandise. In each case she purchased merchandise to the amount of about twelve dollars and took cash for the balance. H. Oransky, Oeo. Shadle, L. M. Ohrlstensen, J. 0. Penney, John Sandven, Fred' Ehlers, and the National Cash Store were those we have heard of who took checks. A young lady accompanied by a man cashed six checks on the same day at Emmetsburg, The supposition Is they came here and worked their graft and 'then went on to Spirit Lake/Later notified that the pair had been located at the lake, they went over there, accompanied by some of those who were taken In, but no trace could be - found of the pair! However, some of the merchants are still on their trail and they may be landed. The young lady was about twenty-three years of age, according to some who saw her. There are others who say she was not that old, and again others who say she was about twenty-three. She was not particularly good looking, nor was she well dressr ed. She was cool and fairly clever In her operations. At two of the places she was looked over very carefully, and the clerks were very suspicious of her. She seemed to have enough courage to face them and get by. Some of the business men Interested In the capture of the check artists, have been looking about the lakes for them. They do not seem to be located there and It Is thought tiiey^ .have moved to hew fields. The checks were all written for twelve dollars with the exception of the J. O. Penney check which was for fifteen dollars. It "how appears there were two girls and at least one man in the party. The name of Jake Hepp was signed to some of the checks and Leslie Gregory to others. The checks were drawn to a girl by the nameof Cramer and were endorsed by her. The appearances now seem to be that another bunch of check artists have fleeced the merchants and got away with It. The more that get away the more that come. It's these fakers that make it hard for legitimate trade to get their checks icashed. with her nttthef Mrs. Pttet Etch, this week.
