Rome police were called to the Northwest Georgia Credit Union’s Dean Street office this week to investigate a possible fake check. Reports said that on March 21st of this year, Gladys Diane Pope, 62 of Rome, obtained a cashier’s check for $19. Then Pope returned this week with a cashier’s check for $6,850 that was on wrong colored paper.
Reports said that Pope attempted to put the money in her account, however, the clerk noticed that the check was written on blue, not red, which the credit union uses.
Pope told police that she had gotten the check though the mail and that a male subject she had met online sent her the check.
She was arrested and charged with third-degree forgery.
