Beware of Fake Check Scams
If you receive a check in the mail that you were not expecting, it may be a scam that could cost you thousands of dollars. There are many variations of check scams, such as someone offering to:
- Buy something you advertised for sale;
- Pay you to work at home;
- Give you an “advance” on a sweepstakes you’ve won; or
- Give you the first installment on the millions you’ll receive for agreeing to transfer money in a foreign country to your bank account for safekeeping.
Fraudulent checks look real. You can protect yourself from being victimized with these simple steps:
- Call the bank the check is drawn on to verify its authenticity.
- Monitor your account regularly through online banking
- Report fraud attempts to the Bank, and keep the check to aid in the investigation.
