Yet Another Scam

This come to us from Nick Strong, Yard Manager at JC VanDoren Building Materials, in Hopewell, NJ.

On August 7th., 2014. I received a phone call from an alias by the name of “Tim Bradshaw” with a fabricated company by the name of “Trans Arrow” requesting pricing on two units of plywood. Shortly after, I was given an order for this material to be delivered to a “jobsite” in Center City, Philadelphia. The following day, my driver took the materials to the jobsite, where he was handed a check by a women who arrived on a bus and left shortly after. He was then unloaded curbside by a forklift by someone else and he returned to my yard.

When we went to deposit the check, it was returned for being “altered and suspicious.” Upon further investigation it was discovered that the check was completely fraudulent. Not only did the routing number not align with the name on the check, but it did not even match up with the same bank that check had indicated it was from.
