If you own a retail outlet in Tracy that sells tires, be aware that a person identifying himself as R.E. Nicholson presenting a check with a Manteca address — please do not accept the check without checking its validity. I am tired of getting your calls and proving my husband did not write the checks.
My purse, including my checkbook, was stolen the weekend of Thanksgiving 2012. My bank account was immediately closed and credit cards canceled. R. E. Nicholson died on Oct 15, 1998 — he cannot write checks, no matter what ID is shown.
If you have cashed such a check I feel sorry for you, but if you lose money, you have no one but yourself to blame. Ask the man for a thumbprint and I guarantee he will run.
