Description

KMSP-TV takes "an undercover look at why the Twin Cities have become inviting targets for organized crime. This investigation examines the explosive growth of "check fraud" in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Banks are losing tens of millions of dollars annually because crooks can easily pass bogus checks. In the end, bank customers end up paying higher fees... With hidden cameras we showed how the banks themselves are contributing to the problem."
