Banks in southwest Michigan are on the lookout for fake checks, all because of an elaborate scheme hitting the area.

The payroll checks appear to be from local businesses. The signature looks real, so banks have been cashing them. Police say most of the checks were cashed between April 11 and May 6.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to a thousand dollar reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest.
