boston-globe-1984-01-22

A REWARD OF $100,000.00 IS HEREBY OFFERED FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST AND CONVICTION OF THE PERSON OR PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FORGERY AND ATTEMPTED PASSING OF A TWO MILLION DOLLAR CHECK, DRAWN ON AN E.F. HUTTON CASH RESERVE MANAGEMENT ACCOUNT AT THE BANK OF NEW ENGLAND, 28 STATE STREET, BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS. THIS REWARD IS NECESSARY BECAUSE EFFORTS TO INVESTIGATE THIS FORGERY HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL.

SUMMARY OF INFORMATION TO DATE:

On June 7, 1982, a young man of  Middle Eastern extraction using the name of Mr. Abdulamiar, with no identification papers, attempted to open an account at the Mideast Bank, New York City, with a forged check for two million dollars.

This forged check was drawn on an account at the Bank of New England.

The investigation to date has determined that this was a counterfeit check copied from a legitimate check which on March 11, 1982, was passed through and somehow gotten from the E.F. Hutton Cash Reserve Management Section in the Bank of New England.

Efforts to obtain relevant information  concerning this forged check from the Bank of New England in Boston have been unsuccessful, and it has become necessary to make this public request for information as a result.

In an attempt to determine the true circumstances of this situation, and to assist the ongoing official investigation into this matter and bring about the successful prosecution and conviction of those involved, any and all information will be carefully considered and provided to the authorities for their use. All responses will be held in utmost confidentiality with no liability to the reporting party.
