RNC Warning of Cheque Frauds

Police are investigating after individuals have been attempting to cash fraudulent Government of Canada cheques.

There have been several reports that three men have been attempting to or have successfully cashed Government of Canada cheques at banks throughout the Northeast Avalon region.

In one instance, one of the men left behind an out of province ID card which we do not believe is authentic, and may be going by the name Mackenzie Augustin Maxance.

All three persons involved were described as being dark skinned men with one being further described as having short dark hair and a dark mustache/goatee.

Anyone who has information is asked to contact the RNC or Crime Stoppers.
