$17,500 Fraud Case in Murfreesboro - Car Reported as Stolen after Fraudulent Purchase

Jun 01, 2022 at 03:09 pm by WGNS

Murfreesboro Police released a video captured on a home surveillance system in hopes of someone in the community being able to identify a person of interest in a fraud investigation. According to police, a buyer used a fraudulent certified check in the amount of $17,500 to purchase a gray 2018 Chrysler 300 on May 13, 2022.


Authorities say the seller took the certified check to the bank, where it was determined to be fraudulent due to the routing number. The sale was person to person and no ID was exchanged between the buyer and seller, making it more difficult for police to track down the suspect. Furthermore, the seller hasn't been able to get back in touch with the buyer.

The car has been entered into the National Crime and Information Center (NCIC) database as stolen. To date, it has not been located since the purchase date of May 13th.
