Forgery victim bilked out $20K in Milton

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – A Milton resident may be out nearly $20,000 after someone forged a pair of checks July 30.

The victim found out about the forgery when he checked his bank account and saw two checks, written for $9,800 and $9,500 were pending clearance on his account. The victim said neither he nor his wife wrote the checks, and that they still had possession of the checks bearing the same numbers.

A hold was put on his account until the issue was resolved.
