1907 S. Park St. (PLS Loan Store)

Details

The MPD was recently called to the PLS Loan Store, 1907 S. Park St. after a 22-year old woman tried to cash a fraudulent $4,050 check. She said it was sent to her as payment for a "job" she had secured over the internet. Her "employer" "Ryan Henderson" was going to ship items to her residence, and she would repackage things and mail them to others. The check she received from "Henderson" appeared to be issued by the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Pension Fund. The investigating MPD officer was able to contact fund managers and they indicated this was not an isolated case, that they had received at least 10 calls involving similar bogus checks .
