Fake Check Schemes on the Rise
This article was originally posted by the BBB on June 12, 2006. I am adding this info because this scam is currently on the rise again. You can read the Better Business Bureau article here.
If you have been victimized by a phony check drawn on a federally insured financial institution, you should phone the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation at 877. 275.3342. If the check is drawn on a foreign bank, contact the United States Secret Service at 202.406.5572 or go to www.secretservice.gov.
