Earlier this month a woman came into the Fairfield Police Department about a possible fraudulent check. The woman stated that back on December 30, 2022, she noticed an attempted transaction on her Regions Bank account. The attempted transaction was a check for the amount of $51,250 and was addressed to “Paul Wong”. The woman claimed she never wrote the check and the check number was also out of the series.
The woman was able to contact her bank about the fraudulent check and no cash was withdrawn. This case is under investigation.
