After being the victim of a $25,000 check hoax during the holidays, the Lowcountry Chapter of the Salvation Army is now getting some relief. Captain Anthony Juliana with the Salvation Army says the agency has received more than $75,000 in donations.
“We are in the process of saying thank you to some 278 friends and supporters of the Salvation Army from 31 states across the country that helped us raise over $75,500,” says Juliana.
The check was forged by someone who staged themselves as a Force Protection worker. The Salvation Army cashed the check to feed about 100 families, but the check bounced in December. Juliana says the recent donations include an anonymous wire transfer for the full amount of the bounced check. Still no arrests have been made.
