Beverly Hills man loses hire cash in suspected USPS examine fraud

Erik Hatchett has lived in his Beverly Hills home for five years and pays his rent with a check until he says his check for $ 9,000 was cashed at another bank in July.

“I know a lot of people like to make digital payments and the like, but you know we’re kind of old-fashioned, we like to write the check and have a hard copy of the check,” said Hatchett.

Hatchett tells KTLA that he mailed his check on July 6th and it was cashed at a Bank of America on the morning of July 7th.

Hatchett has since contacted the Chase Bank fraud department and filed a police report.

Suspected ‘humorous cash’ rip-off artist charged after Nashville companies conned out of money

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A surveillance video posted online by a Hermitage company using counterfeit cash led police to identify the scammer responsible for several similar scams.

Rashida Groomster, 22, was arrested on Wednesday on five criminal simulation cases.

An arrest warrant states that a woman walked into the Rusty Nail on Andrew Jackson Parkway in September 2020 and used a fake $ 100 bill to pay for a meal, get change, and get the business out of money.

The Rusty Nail posted a surveillance video of the woman and was contacted by several people on Facebook, with the scammer identified as a groomster, according to court documents.

Another warrant states that Groomster used a fake $ 50 bill at Ruby Sunshine on 21st Avenue South in December 2020.

Details of the other incidents that Groomster allegedly participated in were not immediately released.

Groomster was admitted to Metro Prison Wednesday evening for criminal simulation, theft, resisting arrest and circumventing arrest. Their bond issue was set at $ 113,500.

A booking photo for groomster was not provided by the Metro police.
