Nelson County detectives break up bogus check scam, put 2 behind bars


Investigators believe the man behind the scheme, who worked with his girlfriend, has likely been doing it across the country for years.

Last fall, in Nelson County, a check was written for over $33,000. But it was bogus, and so too was the business that was in the top left corner.

Det. Brandon Teater with the Nelson County Sheriff's Office tells us Zachary McDonald had been taking advantage of people for years. When he was arrested in Bourbon County, investigators say he was there, scamming someone else.
