Red Cross Check Scam

They're accused of taking advantage of the system that was supposed to help them.

Investigators say those involved ripped off more than $10,000 from the Red Cross.

Somehow, they got a hold of blank voucher forms while filing for legitimate claims and forged the stolen documents to the maximum amount of assistance they can get.

The problem was spotted by the chapter when it noticed the forms had gone missing.

Chris Floyd of the Capital Area Red Cross says, "Internally we have those systems in place to catch incidents of fraud and we're truly working this on a day in, day out basis."

This is an ongoing investigation, so there could be more arrests.
