Fraudulent checks passing through Price County

PARK FALLS (WAOW) -- According to the Park Falls Chief of Police, a man is passing fraudulent checks through Park Falls and Price County.

Investigators don't have a description of the man at this time.

The checks are Comcheks.  Investigators say those checks are commonly used by trucking companies for their drivers to purchase fuel.

Each fraudulent check has been written for $50 in which the suspect makes a purchase and takes the remaining amount in cash.

For each incident, the suspect has listed the company as ABF Freight INC on the check.  If you encounter a check that matches that description, investigators say be aware that it could be fraudulent.

They say try to get a description of the suspect, a vehicle and license plate.

Call the Park Falls Police Department at (715) 762-4226 or the Price County Sheriff's Department at (715) 339-3011 with any information.
