ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A man called police July 23 after he was notified about a $10,000 fraudulent check made in his name.

Two days earlier, the bank told the man that he could not open an account with them because of a fraudulent check written last year. The check was stopped once someone tried to deposit it.

The man said he never owned a check book. 

The bank advised the man to make a report with police so that the bank could move forward with a fraud investigation.
