Three individuals arrested for conspiracy in connection with depositing counterfeit checks at Alabama bank

In 2022, three individuals from Alabama have been accused of conspiracy and bank fraud for depositing fraudulent checks at a Chase Bank branch in Birmingham.

The U.S. Department of Justice made an announcement on Monday, revealing that three individuals have been indicted on multiple charges. Jon-Christopher Arrington Spencer, also known as “JC Spencer” or “Money Mike,” a 22-year-old from Bessemer, Haley Monique Perkins, a 21-year-old from Pleasant Grove, and Jeffery Dwaine Moody Jr., a 22-year-old from Birmingham, have been charged with conspiracy and bank fraud. Spencer is facing an additional charge for theft of mail matter.

Between May 2022 and August 31, 2022, Spencer, Perkins, and Moody allegedly conspired to defraud Chase Bank, according to the indictment. Their method involved acquiring three fraudulent checks from the blue depository boxes at the Meadowbrook U.S. Post Office, where the checks had been left after hours. The checks were drawn on three separate businesses’ bank accounts.

Moody received the checks and deposited them into his personal Chase Bank account. The total amount of the checks deposited exceeded $7,000. The defendants made two unsuccessful attempts to withdraw funds from this account for personal purposes.

Spencer could potentially be sentenced to a maximum of 35 years in prison, while Perkins and Moody may face up to 30 years behind bars.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, with Assistant U.S. Attorney Brittney L. Plyler handling the prosecution.
