This does not exactly belong on this forum. Three of our checks have been 'lost' in the last 6 months. One has never surfaced, one was found in the lady's ( recipient ) neighbor's yard and so saved. The last one was cashed by someone. It was written with one of those inks ( pens ) that can not be 'washed' from the check very easily. The bank says that the check showed a lot of smearing but was still clear enough for someone to cash it somewhere. What do any of you know about this kind of crime ? We will be turning it over to LE officer but I would like info on what other people know before we talk to him. I think that I should add that the check was for a few hundred dollars but the thief was not able to alter it in any way.
