Scam alert, Sept. 19, 2011

September 16, 2011
An Evanston man reportedly used checks from an account closed nine years ago to try to buy cars at two area dealerships. He took delivery from one of the stores, but returned the car without incident about a week later.
At that dealership, the man told salespeople that he made a wire transfer to the dealership’s account on a Saturday, which could not be confirmed because the bank was closed. Store personnel later determined the man actually deposited into the transfer account a $60,000 check, which bounced.
The salesperson conceded that he strayed from policy by delivering the vehicle without confirmation of the wire transfer to the account.
