MONROE, La. – If you're going to buy something with a forged cashier's check, don't misspell "cashier's" or use an FBI office as your shipping address.

Police in Monroe, La., say they arrested a 44-year-old man from Memphis, Tenn., after he did both. He was held Friday on two counts of forgery and as a fugitive from justice in Georgia, where he is accused of a similar scheme.

The FBI called police Thursday after a Minnesota cell phone distributor called the bureau.

The company had sent 50 phones to the address for the FBI office Monroe, only to discover its $2,359.45 payment was a "cahier's check".

FBI agents saw the suspect wave down a delivery truck driver outside the bureau later Thursday, stopped the transaction and waited for police.
