Alert-ATM Cash scam reported

Good afternoon

Please be mindful of your surroundings when approaching ATMs and do not cash someone else’s check.

Earlier today a victim was walking up to an ATM in the area of South Square when he was  approached by a short dark skinned black male, 5’6” to 5”8”.  This male aggressively asked the victim to cash a check and was very persistent.   The victim reluctantly agreed, and was trying to assist a fellow resident …and guess what – the check bounced.

Investigators are working hard to attempt to identify and charge the suspect in this scam.

Beware and don’t fall for this!
