Danville Police are investigating a two county check scam.

The suspects are printing payroll checks on what appears to be actual check paper. Danville Police Chief Jay Newell says the counterfeits are so convincing they usually aren't caught until the check makes it to the bank.

Citizens are urged to be diligent, and confirm the validity of any suspicious checks with the issuer before cashing them.

The faulty check scheme has already affected business in Danville and Harrodsburg.
