Cops Investigating Forged Check

Stan Lee‘s checking account is $300k light, and cops are on the hunt for the perp who swiped the cash … TMZ has learned.
We’re told the Marvel Comics legend filed a report with Beverly Hills PD Tuesday after one of Stan’s business partners discovered the money had been withdrawn without his knowledge. After some digging, it was discovered a $300k check was written to Lee’s own charity, Hands of Respect, for a “loan.”
Sources tell us neither Stan or his money managers wrote or authorized the transaction, and Bev Hills PD is investigating the case as a check forgery.
We’re told Stan’s people believe this might be an inside job — someone within the foundation wrote the check in an attempt to keep the cash themselves.
Either way, it’s not a very nice bday gift for the comic book icon … who just turned 95 on Thursday.
