The Larchmont Police Department is warning people about a check scam targeting teens and young adults.
It comes after two recent incidents that occurred after hours at a Chase Bank on Chatsworth Avenue in the village.
Police say two teenagers were approached by a man asking to cash a check for him. The suspect claimed that he cannot cash the check, offered to pay $40 to the victim to deposit the check in their account via ATM, and then withdraw the balance of the check for the suspect. Both checks were written on an apparent Chase Bank account. The amounts of the checks were $800 and $900.
Investigators believe this crime pattern has occurred in multiple jurisdictions by several suspects.
Police are asking anyone that witnesses similar or any suspicious activity to call police immediately at 914-834-1000.
