ND man charged with writing $270,000 in bad checks, buying 2 cars
Jason D. Anderson, 44, was arrested Wednesday, April 18, at a Gate City Bank in West Fargo after the bank called police to report a suspected fraudulent check was being deposited.
An investigation revealed Anderson had used bad checks in a number of ways, causing a total of about $270,000 in losses for area businesses, including banks, according to court documents.
Court documents say Anderson used an account belonging to a company called TEMS Foundation LLC as part of the illegal check writing.
In one case, Anderson wrote a bad check for $29,192 to buy a 2014 Dodge Challenger from a Bismarck dealership, court documents say.
Also, court documents say Anderson used a bad check to purchase a Corvette from a Fargo dealership for $48,589.
West Fargo police say those vehicles have been recovered, reducing somewhat the potential losses arising from the alleged spree of bad checks.
