Bad Check

Monday, May 9th, 2005 • Filed under Banks

A Virginia man went to the bank and presented a check for $1,450, but the teller said that she would have to get approval from the Vice President and left. Melinda Babson, Vice President, recognized the woman’s name on the check, but did not recognize the signature. Babson called the woman who said that she had not written a check for the amount. The unsuspecting man waited calmly out front sipping a cup of coffee until police arrived and arrested him for forgery. Police noted that the man was a “knucklehead” for staying at the bank. Had he left, however, police still could have easily tracked him down as he had given the teller his driver’s license.
