Bad checks, fired college association staffers investigated at NCCC

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to Niagara County Community College this past week after fraudulent activity was discovered on the College Association of NCCC's checking account.

The chief financial officer for the association told deputies First Niagara Bank officials said from Feb. 11 to Thursday there were 22 fraudulent checks all written in the amount of $822.15, totaling $18,087.30. The checks were disputed by First Niagara and no funds were paid out.

NCCC staff said no checks were physically taken, instead all checks were forged using the College Association of NCCC's account number.

The staffer added that the bad checks may be related to three former employees of the college association that have been fired since July. The three were all fired due to missing funds.

Sheriff's investigators are handling the case.

No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
