A suspicious Villager contacted law enforcement after a check for $750 suddenly bounced.
The 73-year-old woman who lives in the Village of Orange Blossom Gardens on May 28 discovered that a $750 check had been returned for insufficient funds, according to the Lady Lake Police Department. The woman said she had not written the $750 check.
She went to Citizens First Bank and obtained copies of her most recent checks, including the fraudulent check which had been submitted electronically at Chase Bank.
The woman closed her account to prevent future fraudulent transactions.
