CHEQUES cashed illegally in post offices around North Somerset are thought to be 'just the tip of the iceberg'.
Carol Munrow, from Birmingham, was arrested on November 1 for handing in 16 cheques from two books and a card stolen from the city.
The 33-year-old was caught on CCTV cashing £100 cheques in three post offices in the region.
The stores affected by the scam included Blagdon, Backwell, Langford, Churchill, Wrington, Congresbury and Yatton.

PC Ray Bradley travelled up to Kings Heath police station in Birmingham to make the arrest.
He said: "I believe these offences are just the tip of the iceberg. She seems to make a career out of cashing fraudulent cheques."
Munrow was released from prison in May after serving a four-and-a-half year prison sentence for 80 similar offences.
At that time, magistrates were asked for a massive 890 offences to be taken in to consideration.
Munrow is due to appear before magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse on November 12.
