The paper looks good, but the intention is anything but. What looked like a check (similar to those used by truck drivers) was used to cheat at least two Hamilton County businesses.

Story highlights:

  • A man has entered businesses in Hamilton County with Comdata checks.
  • Comdata checks are usually used by truckers, and is more like a voucher than a check.
  • This man's Comdata checks got him the cash, but bounced when businesses tried to cash them on their end.
  • The man walked away with money that wasn’t his, and never returned for his order.
