Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI UTHMIDOI HMAID - Tutscfoy, March 23, 1971 Bad cheque warning by police Lethbridge city police today issued � warning to city merchants and citizens to be on the lookout for fraudulent cheques. The warning indicates local police receive, almost every day, special bulletins regarding stolen company cheques, stolen grain cheques and the illegal operations of cheque passers. This year the merchant, businessman and the general public are more likely to be victimized by the "bad paper artist" than by any other form of criminal activity, said the police. Fraudulent cheques usually fall into one of four categories, including: -genuine cheques that have been raised (cheques altered to show an increased amount). -genuine cheques that have been lost or stolen and cashed on a forged endorsement. -false cheques drawn on non-existent accounts. -genuine cheques drawn on existing accounts but which do not contain sufficient funds to cover the cheque. Police said all merchants should have the client endorse the cheque in his presence, with name, address and phone number. They should ask for proper identification and beware of a person who has been drinking or is from out-of-prov-ince. High school choir here Wednesday The High School Choir of Caronport, Saskatchewan, will be featured at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. In addition to presenting many choir numbers, various solo, trio and group selections will be included in the program.
