National Cyber Security Awareness Month scam #1

Fake check scams happen when initial contact made is in online ads or marketplaces and an authentic-looking, but fake, check is sent to the consumer with directions to deposit it in their personal bank account and then wire a portion of the proceeds to a third party. The scam artist gets cash in hand and the victim is left owing their bank money. Remember: anyone asking you to deposit a check and wire the proceeds to someone you don't know is scamming you. Don't fall for it. Report it to www.fraud.org.
