Beverly Hills man loses rent money in suspected USPS check fraud

Problem Solvers

Erik Hatchett has been living in his Beverly Hills home for five years, paying for his rent with a check, until he says his $9,000 check was cashed at a different bank in July. 

“I know a lot of people like to do digital payments and such, but you know we’re kind of old fashioned. We like to write the check and have a hard copy of the check,” Hatchett said. 

Hatchett tells KTLA he mailed his check on July 6 and it was cashed on the morning of July 7 at a Bank of America. Hatchett has since contacted Chase bank’s fraud department and filed a police report.
