CUMMING, Ga. — A man was handcuffed and taken to jail for questioning after he tried to cash a supposedly invalid $10,000 cashier's check, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.
The management at Wells Fargo Bank, 5495 Bethelview Road, told deputies a man tried to pass a fake $10,000 cashier's check Nov. 26.
The manager said she verified with the Citizens Bank in Forsyth County that the checks were not valid.
Deputies handcuffed the man and transported him to Forsyth County Detention Center for questioning.
There, the man told deputies his grandmother gave him half of her house when she passed away.
He said the house was split between him and his brother. His brother bought out his portion of the house for about $60,000. The money was placed in an escrow account for him at the Citizens Bank.
He said the bank issued him five checks for $10,000 and the rest was given to him in cash.
Deputies contacted the Citizens Bank and gave them the check information to re-verify.
They said the checks were valid and legal.
The man was released, given his belongings and taken back to the Wells Fargo Bank.
The manager told deputies she contacted two banks, and both the Bank of DK and the Forsyth Citizens Bank said the checks were not theirs.
She told deputies she used phone numbers that only banks use to communicate with each other.
