Business Operators To Be Aware Of Fake Cheques

The Criminal Investigations Department is advising business operators to be aware of a trend whereby fake cheques are being used to obtain goods worth up to hundreds and thousands of dollars.

The fraudulent activity has been picked up in the Western Division whereby certain individuals who are involved in an organised crime syndicate have been operating using fake cheques to obtain goods from hardware companies and re-selling the goods in order to obtain cash amounting close to 100k and more.

While investigators are following some leads, we are advising businessmen especially hardware companies to be vigilant and if in doubt call Police on 8901667 to verify issues before committing to any transactions which involves large sums of money.
