Listen in to Orson Wells as he narrates the connection of how a letter was tied in with murder. Forged checks plague a London bank. There doesn’t seem to be any trace, or any link to the mastermind behind the bogus checks. Finally a man claiming to be Forsythe is caught passing a fake check. The police believe his story that he’s innocent, but will his story lead them to their crook? We at least learn how the scheme works. The mastermind uses randomly picked victims to take his bogus checks to the bank for him, screening his true identity.
Through voiceover, along with the drama, we learn the importance of checking identification credentials. More people are caught passing the checks, and unbeknownst to each of the victims, they are being used as front men for the real forger. After enough of the unwary helpers are picked up, a pattern is identified, and a name comes to light. There are a few unexpected snags in the plan though, and the suspect disappears.
The plot and drama thickens as the noose of the manhunt tightens. Stand by for a final word from Orson Wells to tell how the forger finally came to justice, and how the courtroom action panned out.
