Woman Busted for Cashing Fake Check in Emmaus
Allentown woman allegedly cashed a fake check for $987.77 at CK Check Cashing on Harrison Street in Emmaus.
An Allentown woman accused of cashing multiple bad checks was arraigned Tuesday on multiple charges filed by Emmaus and Bethlehem police.
Shatoya M. Ramseur, 24, of 1018 Zieglers Court, allegedly forged four paychecks from the Unclaimed Freight store in Bethlehem, according to court records.
Ramseur also allegedly cashed a fake check for $987.77 at CK Check Cashing at 310 E. Harrison St. in Emmaus on June 18, according to court records.
When CK Check Cashing turned it over to the bank it works with, it turned out that the check was from “a fictitious bank listing a fictitious business as the payee,” according to the affidavit of probable cause filed by Emmaus Police.
Ramseur was charged with access device fraud and receiving stolen property, both felonies.
In Bethlehem, Ramseur is accused of signing a paycheck in the name of the Unclaimed Freight store’s controller and cashing it for $191.77, court records say.
Bethlehem police received a complaint from the store in June about unauthorized account withdrawals.
Bethlehem police charged Ramseur with forgery, a felony; theft; receiving stolen property and bad checks.
Ramseur was arrested Tuesday and arraigned in front of District Judge Wayne Maura of Bethlehem on both cases. She was committed to Lehigh County Prison in lieu of $35,000 bail.
