Three people were getting away with a check fraud scheme for months before a confidential informant brought them to the attention of the FBI, according to a grand jury indictment.
The indictment, filed Thursday, charges them with 28 counts of bank fraud and aiding and abetting. One of them was also charged with two counts of aggravated identity fraud.
The trio allegedly cashed 40 counterfeit checks totalling more than $41,000 at Zions Bank branches between August and October. The withdrawals were made on several businesses, including the Central Utah Counseling Center, Solera Networks, Concourse Auto Werks and the Willow Creek Country Club, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.
