Definately request a copy of the check - I believe they legally have to give you a may end up costing you a few bucks, but it's better than a lawsuit.

And the cops really do NOT care about identity fraud. They take notes about it, but they have "more important" things to worry about.

Here's a couple of websites for you to look for more information: this was developed by an identity-theft victim....I've heard decent things about it. - definately look at the Victim's Resource page, as there is directions on how to deal with Stolen Checks/fraudulant accounts...

Good are on the right path, it's just going to be time-consuming...
