CUMMING, Ga. — After a woman’s son died someone wrote fake checks in his name, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

On July 22, a woman told deputies the Forsyth County Probate Court assigned her as executor of her son’s estate, who died in February.

She said she saw a portion of a lease and three checks that had her son’s signature, but the handwriting did not match. The deputy said he was no handwriting expert, but he could see a distinct difference.

The three checks totaled about $3,500 and were all made out to the same person.
