Texas police are hunting for two men who reportedly conned a trucking company out of $6000 in Comcheks by posing as police officers.
Scammers Claim That They Need Comchek To Pay For Truck Tow
The incident reportedly took place back in January when two men claiming to be Odessa police officers contacted the owner of a trucking company, claiming that one of his trucks had been involved in a crash. They asked the company to send $6000 via Comchek in order to pre-pay the towing company to remove the truck from the roadway.
The trucking company sent two Comcheks worth approximately $6000 to the Pilot Flying J, where they were cashed.
Crime Stoppers Offers Cash Reward For Information On Suspects
The two suspects were caught on camera cashing the checks. Both are black males. One wore a hoodie pulled over his face. The other wore a tan cap that left his face visible.
If you have information about the suspects, you can report them anonymously to Odessa Crime Stoppers at (432) 333-TIPS. You may be eligible for a cash reward.
