Boston hospital: Forgers defrauded patients

Boston Globe, July 2, 2008

A check forgery ring targeted patients at Boston-based New England Baptist Hospital, according to hospital and law enforcement officials. The forgers used private checking account information and stole identities to take as much as $3,000 from each victim. So far, nine victims have been identified by the hospital, but more may have been targeted, officials said.
