Authorities say they're seeking a woman who forged a check at a local bank while wearing an oxygen mask.

On November 20, 2010, the 51-year-old victim went to the Woodforest National Bank in east Harris County to make a cash withdrawal and she was advised she had insufficient funds. The victim was provided with a list of recent activity to her checking account and noticed a counter check had been forged on November 5, 2010 for $8,000. The victim says she did not authorize anyone to make a withdrawal from her account.

The suspect is described as a white female, 45-55 years of age, medium build, and wavy hair. The suspect was wearing an oxygen mask at the time.
