A large check was forged recently at a Grand Junction Walmart and authorities are trying to identify the people responsible.

Surveillance video from Walmart has shown three individuals who are believed to be responsible for the fraudulent activity and law enforcement is hoping the public can help identify them.

Here's What Happened

According to the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, these three individuals made a purchase totaling more than $1300 at the Rimrock Walmart using a forged check. Apparently, the check was stolen from a residential mailbox and then altered before being cashed and used in the purchase.

It's stuff like this that makes you wonder when we will see the end of paper checks as a means of transacting retail business. Obviously, we are moving in that direction, but so far we haven't arrived at a total cashless and paperless economic society.
