HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu police are asking the public for help with finding three women wanted in connection with a travelers check fraud scheme.

The suspects go by the names Danielle Hoffman, Jan Duncan and Danaya Smith.

In March, the women allegedly used fraudulent travelers checks at multiple retail businesses, scamming stores out of hundreds of dollars. 

The scams took place on multiple occasions at over 50 Oahu stores. Some believe the women targeted businesses that are unfamiliar with the payment form. 

“People are counterfeiting travelers checks using color printers, because people don’t see them that often," said Gregory Dunn, of the Better Business Bureau. “So it’s very easy to go to a cashier who doesn’t know what a travelers check really looks like.”

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.
