Forged Austintown township check shows up in Maine
AUSTINTOWN — Someone attempted to cash a forged township check in Maine, according to a police report.
An employee at the Austintown Township administration building received a call from a credit union in Westbrook, Maine on Thursday. A customer was attempting to cash a $2,450 check apparently issued by the Austintown Township trustees.
The check was reportedly made out to a woman, but township records showed that a check bearing the same number was made out to a local business and had cleared the bank.
The credit union did not cash the apparently fraudulent check.
