A case out of Marshall County proves thieves will stop at nothing to scam unsuspecting customers, and businesses too.

Faulkner Fabricating, based in Bourbon, recently had folks calling them, saying they'd received fake checks that the company never mailed out. The checks had Faulkner's address, routing and account numbers on them, leading investigators to believe it was an inside job by someone at a financial institution.

Victims were sent an email, claiming they could keep some of the money if they cashed the check. According to our reporting partners at the Plymouth Pilot ., at least 14 people across the country tried to cash the checks.
