ALLEGED BANK FRAUD. The London and Westminster Bank is reported to have been the victim of a serious forgery. The other day a cheque for £820, purporting to be from a West End money-Jendt'r, was presented at St. James's-square branch. It was written on notepaper, accompanied by a letter, and the bank officials, not doubting the genuineness of the signature, cashed the cheque. The forger is said to have advertised for a private secretary, and sent one of the applicants to cash the cheque, afterwards sending him to change the notes into French money and English gold. He then told the secietary he did not require him further that day, and disappeared. The secretary com- municated his suspicion to the bank, and the forgery was discovered. The manager of the bank states that the matter is being investigated by the police, but there is no clue to the perpe. trator of the fraud, who is believed to have lett the country.
