Check Mate 

A former employee of a 13th Street medical center fraudulently deposited two of the business’ checks for a total of $4,900 into her personal account between Sept. 18 and Sept. 20.

The accountant for Park Slope Medical Center was doing the payroll when she noticed that a former employee had deposited two checks into her own bank account. The first check, which was signed by the owner the center between Sixth and Seventh avenues and was meant for the doctor’s insurance plan, was left blank, but the crook wrote it for $2,900 and took it as hers. The second check was supposed to be for the crook, but instead of $1,000, the crook changed the amount to $2,000.
