Port Arthur sees fake payroll checks for the first time

KFDM News - Port Arthur authorities say it is the first time they've come across counterfeited city payroll checks.

Detectives say they are finding the fake checks at a number of check cashing locations.

In the past few weeks, a number of counterfeited checks have been cashed at Southeast Texas check cashing locations, including Ace Cash Express in Nederland.

Now those fake checks are turning up in the city of Port Arthur. HEB is one of the places in Port Arthur where the fake checks are turning up.

Investigators have also found them in other HEB locations across the state. Also, Market Basket in Beaumont and Sam's Club from as far away as Houston have received the fake checks.

Investigators say they don't look like city checks, but they are still being cashed.

Investigators say city checks typically have two signatures, and the fake checks only have one signature. They say the counterfeiters could now add another signature, so authorities are encouraging stores to call the city, if anything looks suspicious.
