Consumer Reports

Spelling-deficient thieves get busted | (UPI) -- Spell check took on new meaning in Hickory, N.C., for crooks who tried to pass a counterfeit payroll check.

The Hickory Daily Record says the company name was spelled "Boryhill Furmiture" on the $498 check but a clerk at the Lowes Foods store knew better and refused to cash it. The correct spelling is "Broyhill Furniture."

Police were searching for two men but also arrested Kathy Elaine Gillman, 39, and her daughter Amanda Kaye Gillman, 18, both of Ohio.

When the Gillmans were arrested police allegedly found 42 checks in their car, ranging from $200 to $400, along with a software program used to print checks, pages torn from a phone book and a handgun, the paper reports.
