North Carolina man sentenced to 2 years for writing $58,000 in bad checks for postage stamps

NORFOLK, Va. - Perhaps Javorick Alexander Moore has a really long Christmas card list. Or a lot of pen pals.

The 40-year-old Greensboro, North Carolina, man was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison for bank fraud after writing more than $58,000 in bad checks for postage stamps.

Documents filed in federal court in Norfolk, Virginia, say Moore opened a checking account and deposited about $5,000 before visiting several post offices in Virginia and North Carolina to stockpile stamps. He also spent about $5,000 at office supply and clothing stores.

According to the Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/1sja8Wf ), defence attorney Suzanne Katchmar wrote in court papers that her client was abused as a child, loves to cook and hopes to someday operate a food truck. But she said nothing about his interest in stamps.
