JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A man contacted police Aug.1 after he lost nearly $4,000 to a fraudulent check scam. 

The man was contacted July 27 by a person who offered him a production assistant job. He said he was told to cash a check for $4,950 and then to write personal checks for $2,905 and $811.

The man followed the instructions and mailed the checks to Chicago and California addresses. He then learned the original check was fraudulent.
