CUs staff featured for helping bust check scam
DULUTH, Minn. (1/25/10)--Northern Communities CU (NCCU) was featured on a Duluth, Minn., television station this week regarding its employees’ role in helping police solve a financial fraud case. NCCU staff observed suspicious behavior by individuals attempting to cash checks and alerted the Duluth Police Department. The department’s financial crimes unit discovered the individuals were attempting to cash fraudulent checks through a non-existent business, and that several other Northland financial institutions also had been approached by the scammers. The scheme has caused a reported $16,000 in losses to financial institutions. As of Friday morning, police had identified suspects, but no charges had been filed. Duluth-based WDIO-TV (ABC) picked up the story, which aired Thursday and Friday. “We are proud to assist police in helping stop financial crime, but we’re also very proud of our staff,” NCCU President Larry Champeaux said. “They did the right things at the right time and did what they were trained to do.” NCCU has about $73 million in assets.
