Seller beware: NH dealers victimized by bad checks

Seller beware: NH dealers victimized by bad checks

What happened in New Hampshire could happen here: Close to a dozen dealers there have been defrauded by a couple buying parts or tires with bad checks. The couple, in their 30s, used the names Amanda and James Moore, and the checks were drawn on Citizens Bank or Bank of America.

Each check has been for around $800. One dealer found that the bank account number, names, addresses and phone number were all valid; another found that none of them were. The accounts were marked –Frozen/Blocked” or had insufficient funds.
