A local fraud artist has ripped off Kwantlen Polytechnic University for about $11,000 over the last two months.
From August to September, someone has been cashing forged payroll cheques from the school at local cash stores and payday loan outlets.
The forged cheques are of high quality, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for
the Langley RCMP.
Passing bad cheques was once a much more common crime, but it has been overtaken by credit card fraud in recent years.
Police have a surveillance photo of the person who was cashing the cheques, but have been unable to identify the person thus far.
Anyone with information is being asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to leave an anonymous tip, all CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
