Bad Checks

In 1987 or 1988, in Tennessee, Indiana and Illinois, someone passed bad checks. I mean really bad. This unidentified person purchased at least $800,000 of merchandise at many stores, but with counterfeit checks. To avoid eventual capture, the thief coated the checks with some sort of chemical that caused them to disintegrate within hours. By the time the checks reached the banks, they were nothing but powder.
