Orangeburg County investigators are seeking an individual who allegedly used counterfeit checks to make purchases, according to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.
"This individual used the financial account numbers of a victim to create fake personal checks used to make genuine transactions," Ravenell said. "These appeared real enough to pass twice."
Ravenell said that on Jan. 11, security video taken at TJ Maxx in Orangeburg recorded video that depicted the image of an individual believed to have passed the fake checks.
A similar transaction was made at Walmart located in the same North Road shopping center.
The fake checks passed for about $240 worth of items at the two stores.
If anyone has any identification or knowledge of the transactions, they are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. Callers can remain anonymous.
