CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Authorities are asking for help in identifying a check fraud and identity theft suspect.

The woman in the picture above is a suspect in several cases throughout South Florida.

Officials say the woman cashes checks that have been stolen from the mail.

Most of the checks have been stolen from areas on the East coast of Florida. 

According to Cape Coral PD, the woman has used counterfeit IDs with the names on the IDs being actual victims of identity theft. The photo on the IDs, however, has been changed to her own. 

She is believed to be working with another female suspect.  The suspect has hit at least five different banks using five different names from Sarasota to Miami, FL.
