Check Fraud : Savings Corner Presented by Coosa Valley Credit Union | #phishing | #scams

Check fraud has become an increasing problem that continues to target individuals on a daily basis. With modern technology, a criminal can create, realistic & believable yet counterfeit, personal checks/business checks/Cashier’s Checks/Money Orders to defraud people from their hard earned money. 

Many check fraud scams will come in the form of:

  • A sweepstakes that you supposedly won. 
  • A person in a foreign country needing help. 
  • A work from home offer that is too good to be true. 
  • A request for an advance of money in return for a promise of a larger sum.  
  • Stolen checks (or checks being used without your permission) being fraudulently endorsed and/or used. 

Sadly, no matter what the pitch, the scammed reader is always the victim. Knowledge is power, don’t get scammed!
