(WDAY TV) - Two men are facing racketeering charges in Cass County for printing fake payroll checks and duping others into trying to cash them.

Marcus Royston is in the Cass County Jail and there's a warrant out for Johnny Dorenzo Carter. Police say the men made bogus payroll checks from copies of their real checks.

They then convinced someone else to cash the checks, but give them their own money upfront first. Royston apparently met a woman at a Fargo nightclub and asked her to cash a $5-thousand dollar check for him.

She gave him cash from her own account upfront and found out a few days later that Royston's check was fake.
