FBI Probes Theft Of Donation Checks To Synagogues

| January 18, 2011

NEW YORK (CBS 2) – The FBI is investigating the theft of checks for charity that were sent to dozens – possibly even hundreds – of synagogues.

Members of the synagogues and other officials are left wondering who is stealing the checks, and how the thieves are getting the checks cashed into accounts around the world.

As CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman reports, what were believed to be isolated cases may actually be the work of a sophisticated crime ring.

Seniors at Young Israel of Midwood lined up for a bus on Monday, a bus made possible because of charitable donations. However, for many synagogues, it seems those donations are being intercepted.
