Counterfeit Check Scams Come in Many Guises
If someone you don't know offers to send you money, watch out. It's probably a counterfeit check scam. There are lots of variations of these scams, but one thing is for sure--you'll be out money if you comply.
Sure, it might be tempting to cash a check for free money. If the check is a fraud and bounces after you've cashed it, you're the one who will be held responsible.
These scams take many guises, but the main thing to watch out for is someone you don't know who wants to send you a check or money order for a large sum of money--but requests that you wire a portion of the money back. If you fall for this, you can be sure of three things:
- The check is a fraud.
- The money you deposit in your account is not good. When the check bounces you'll be responsible for paying back the money. This will be even harder to do if you've already spent it.
- You've just wired your money to a crook.
