Fraud in a help wanted ad.

That's what Midland Police say they are dealing with.

According to investigators, E-X-P Delivery Corporation advertised for courier employees in the Midland Reporter Telegram, back in July.

As part of the application process, they asked new employees for their checking account information.

E-X-P deposited large amounts of money into the employees bank account, then told them to send the cash back in a money order.

Turns out, the money deposited, was done so with counterfiet checks.
