  • Police warn of fraud attempts

    Bernie Cave knew it was too good to be true. A check for $4,000 just to shop at a local business and report back on customer service.

    Figuring the check would be no good, he deposited it just to make sure. A few days later it was returned, flagged by the bank as "fictitious."

    It's a common scenario, according to Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield.
