Also, to the high profile article, our employees have been unduly upset. This whole matter was between our compa- ny and the banks involved. I would like to say that First Flag Bank personnel was very alert, helpful and expeditious in handling the matter with the check. There are numerous errors in the arti- cle. I am listing below the corrections that should be made. The case is not "unusual" because the routing number and account num- bers were listed on the bogus check. I am told this is a very common and sim- ple fraud procedure by experienced crooks, i The person who deposited the check did not make off with any cash. The banks immediately put a hold on the account and the funds were never released. No funds were reversed to Bo-Tex, as the banks are responsible for any number, but current. The account was not on a prede- cessor to First Flag, but was a First Flag account. The amount in the headline do not match the amount stated in the article. Finally had anyone from your news- paper contacted me, they would have known that Dale B. Smith is a she and not a he. I do realize that it was probably not the intent of the reporter to incite this reaction from me or to report anything with malice. I just wish that I had been contacted before the article was ever printed. I request that this letter be printed unedited int he Hogansville Home News. DALE B.
