Old Scam Showing up Again

Post by N9CM » Sat Feb 04, 2017 3:12 am

Received two bogus checks in the mail, both from the same outfit, but different mailing addresses (origins)...these are bogus checks of course, but some folks cash then and once your bank processes them, you get scammed big time.

I believe how it works is once you cash these phony checks, the other end now has the means to withdraw or possibly clean out your account electronically.

THere is nothing in the mailing just what appears to be a check but the signature is bogus, copied, so unless your are not alert, you will feel the pain..

Be careful. You never receive something for nothing but trouble...
