GREENWICH - A Greenwich man claims his business was duped out of nearly $8,000 by a man using a counterfeit check.
Rick Freeman, the owner of Check Cashing, says he paid a man last Thursday who appeared to possess a verified check. However, he later heard from the bank that the check was fake.
The suspect was captured on surveillance video, but is still on the loose.
