Hospital: Forgers defrauded patients
Jeffrey Krasner reports in the Boston Globe:
A check forgery ring targeted patients at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, using private checking account information and stolen identities to take as much as $3,000 from each victim, according to hospital and law enforcement officials.
So far, nine victims have been identified by the hospital, but more may have been targeted, officials said. The victims’ checking accounts were raided between December and May, but they have since been reimbursed by their banks. Officials say they believe other organizations probably were also targeted by the ring, and many more people may have been victimized.
