LAST ONE IN CHECK KITING SCHEME ARRESTED

Jason Edward Mott, 32, of 24319 Glenloch Drive in Spring was booked into the Montgomery County Jail early Wednesday afternoon. Mott who was the only one not arrested last week after the Montgomery County Grand Jury indicted five on a check kiting scheme that netted the criminals close to $250,00 from over fifty Conroe businesses and banks.

According to officials the group targeted over 50 Conroe business establishments.

Check kiting is the illegal act of taking advantage of the float to make use of non-existent funds in a checking or other bank account; it is a form of check fraud. It is commonly defined as intentionally writing a check for a value greater than the account balance from an account in one bank, then writing a check from another account in another bank, also with non-sufficient funds, with the second check serving to cover the non-existent funds from the first account. The purpose of check kiting is to falsely inflate the balance of a checking account in order to allow written checks that would otherwise bounce to clear.

The group is accused of engaging in the scheme between June 2008 and September of 2011.
