According to investigators, the suspect has swindled numerous banks using the fake names “Wesley Starr” and “Shawn Smith.”
Investigators were first aware of “Starr” back in January of 2009. He was able to get private account information for a local business then wrote himself a few checks at a local TD Bank in Burlington Township, New Jersey.

Since then he’s cashed counterfeit checks at banks all over South Jersey, Philadelphia, Delaware, Bucks County and Montgomery County, while eluding the authorities. The checks contained the legitimate bank account number of a local business in Montgomeryville.
The real Wesley Starr lives in Trenton and has no knowledge of the imposter, according to investigators.
