Ohh come on?$100,000 grand? Fooled the tellers? Was there not a branch manager? What ever po-dunk bank that is NEEDs to go out of business. Some poor people have no idea and keep their money there.Thats no good. I work for a fortune 10 bank and that kind of crap wouldn't get 5 ft.

What did they do figure out check 102 was fake?

How many customers can that bank have in a day that someone would not catch on to this scam?

Sounds like either the employees are just blind and dumb or lazy.

If I was the head of that bank I believe I would have to fire everyone involved and the bank manager.

Plus I like the description of the guys. Hispanic. No height, no weight, no other details.

Just be on the look out for Hispanic males that have multiple hats and are using cash. Try Walmart on Sundays.

Quick more free money. There are some stupid people running this bank. I hope they can get the change correct at their next McJob, cause corporate management needs to clean house.

Meanwhile these hard working, illegals.... uhh undocumented immigrants .. just continue to impress me with their concept of the American Dream. They're doing the same thing to our social security, welfare, and medical system. They are aided and rncouraged by a do nothing congress and that idiot in the white house.

Even the illegals don't work THAT many jobs to get that many checks... It's called idiot checking yourselves bank tellers.

Here's a clue for you tellers. To avoid confusion in the future, focus on their faces and don't be so dazzled by their many hats!

Oh Yeah, isn't it a law that you have to remove your hat when entering a bank?

The first time they came in with hats on someone should have asked them to take them off.

These guys are already in Texas and doing the same thing. They have raised enough cash to feed their entire counrty for 6 months maybe longer.

The tellers did not want to offend the hispanics, they could have been illegal aliens. Some hispanic group would have organized protests, ala: jesse jackson style & it may have overshadowed the jennifer 8.

why do the banks keep cashing these checks without the proper verification. It would be hard for me to try to cash a check at another bank without an account there, do they have inside help to get them cashed?

Never Heard of a No Hat Law in Banks. I guess just about every man in the sate breaks this law when they enter a bank. Even the secruity guards...

Are you kidding me?????? I have had a checking account with a "fortune 10" bank for 20 years and still can't cash a check without the blood of my first born child.

Maybe I should try wearing a Yankee's hat........

happened here also. we have some of the local gas stations that will cash checks. this one got it done to them by cashing "payroll" checks. they finally got the guys but it took a little while. some of the checks even had the same number on it. it was scanned on a computer and filled out for the amount they wanted. very smart for them and very stupid for the gas station attendant.
