Tiffany went to Ryder Diamonds in Hong Kong, a locally owned diamond store, looking for a specific diamond. Sally Ryder, the owner, was on an overseas trip at the time of the transaction, so her sales assistants handled it.
Tiffany ended up buying two 5-carat diamonds after the transaction went smoothly. However, not long after the transaction, Sally's sales assistants informed her that there was an issue with the diamond payment.
When Sally returned from her trip, she discovered that Tiffany had purchased the diamonds with a forged cheque. It had cleared the bank, but the account on which it was drawn was later discovered to be empty, leaving Sally with a substantial loss.
