Check cheques, police say

POLICE have warned businesses to be vigilant when accepting cheques after a 32-year-old woman was charged with a number of fraud offences.

Tasmania Police Fraud and e-Crime detectives yesterday charged the Campania woman with 23 counts of obtaining goods by false pretences and one count of acquiring a financial advantage by deception.

The false pretences charges relate to a series of dishonoured cheques allegedly used to buy goods between November 2012 and January 2013 for a total amount of $15,915.

A police spokesman said businesses needed to be wary when accepting personal cheques.

Steps which can be taken to reduce the potential of cheque fraud include:

• Seeking identification from the customer, which provides name, address and date of birth as well as a signature. Photographic identification is the most preferred form of identification and should be requested.

• Matching the name and the signature to the cheque.

• Ensuring the customer provides a current address and phone number.

Businesses did not have to accept payment by cheque and should not do so where suspicions arose, the spokesman said. They also had the option of waiting until funds cleared before handing over goods.
