Case 4: Forgery PDF Print E-mail
My client, who had no prior record, received a check in the mail that appeared to be a mystery shopper check. The check looked real and my client even called the number on the letter accompanying the check and spoke with a person. The check was for being a mystery shopper and the client would receive a portion of the check and the other portion would be sent back to the company to cover “operating expenses.” My client had fallen on tough times and was without a job so he cashed the check. My client was later arrested for forgery because the check was not authorized and he should have known. In essence, the prosecutor thought my client was in on this scam.

I quickly researched this scam and found that hundreds of people had been the victim of a similar type of scam. After presenting this evidence to the prosecutor, he finally agreed with me and dismissed the charges against my client.
