This story is too slapdash and lacking in context. You needed to have encapsulated the following: Prior to recent updates in F.D.I.C. regulations: YOUR bank had the discretion NOT to post the funds from a deposit of a check issued against ANOTHER bank until such funds cleared that issuing bank. The F.D.I.C. stepped in and essentially said, "nope", with your best interests at heart. The new regulation stipulated that the funds post immediately due to the fact that in the overwhelming percentage of such transactions, the other bank's check is financially fine and legally dandy. And, like with bathroom policy changes meant to relax restrictions on REAL transgendered individuals, LOWLIFE SCUM smelled blood in the water and came biting. Because the funds must be made available to you right away, there is what fraud investigators call "Flash Money" by fraud investigators. You're supposed to withdraw from those funds an amount you've been asked to send back via Western Union or MoneyGram. That money is destined to drop back off when the fraudulent nature of the deposited cashier's check is detected. Anything you withdraw is now NEGATIVE in your account. I teach guitar/bass lessons and advertise on Craigslist. The scam targeting instructors and tutors involves paying for 90 days worth of services rendered, particularly the summer months, and the person contacting you is supposedly the "parent of a child who is coming to your town on vacation from the United Kingdom, South Africa or other English-speaking foreign country". The "tuition payment" is always by $700-1,000 too much because the "parent" had somebody else make the payment arrangements. That person was supposed to have sent "another check to the nanny who will be caring for the kid over the summer. You must then wait for the sum to post in your account and then wire money to the "Nanny".

BEST WAY TO HAVE GOOD AMOUNT TO START A GOOD BUSINESS or TO START LIVING A GOOD LIFE..... Hack and take money directly from any ATM Machine Vault with the use of ATM Programmed Card which runs in automatic mode. email ([email protected]) for how to get it and its cost . .......... EXPLANATION OF HOW THESE CARD WORKS.......... You just slot in these card into any ATM Machine and it will automatically bring up a MENU of 1st VAULT $1,000, 2nd VAULT $5,000, RE-PROGRAMMED, EXIT, CANCEL. Just click on either of the VAULTS, and it will take you to another SUB-MENU of ALL, OTHERS, EXIT, CANCEL. Just click on others and type in the amount you wish to withdraw from the ATM and you have it cashed instantly... Done. ***NOTE: DON'T EVER MAKE THE MISTAKE OF CLICKING THE "ALL" OPTION. BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE OUT ALL THE AMOUNT OF THE SELECTED VAULT. email ([email protected]). We are located in USA.

Just go to a check cashing place, get cash, and don't send any back. XD When the scammers ask, just keep finding excuses. LOL
Archer Sterling (3 months ago)
The best thing you can do is go to to your bank or credit union and tell them the situation and they will generally know if it is real or fake. Anytime someone sends you more than asking for and asks you send money back or give money to the mover or xyz it is 100% a scam!

This happened to my mom and I. We luckily got the feeling that something was super fishy about it, so we didn't cash it! I just made a whole video on it and it's going up on my channel later today.

Liam Watson (3 months ago)
Cashing a fake check is forgery. Remember what happened to Akela Njoku and Chase? Chase jailed him for depositing a forged check and he lost everything. The lesson I learned from that was: Never cash in a fake check.

Golden rule: Anything that requires money to get money is fake. Deposit the check and don’t remove the funds wait until it clears and even then wait a few weeks before any withdrawal

Why would someone send you a check and ask you to send most of the money back? People that fall for this and other scams have no critical thinking skills.

Wells fargo sucks so very bad. Went to the downtown portland branch today and did in Beaverton last week. They are all about money money money. I only make $333 SSI and the state for my caregiver because I am so sick sends me $22 a week in state checks that are GOOD. Both times because I cannot get ID because mine expired and the ids are so expensive I was told over and over there was nothing that can be done to cash my checks. Yet they said I could put these checks in a friends bank account that was a Wells Fargo account which is way less safer than going in line to put them through the tellers up frond. I have had an account with Wells Fargo for 29 years and this is how my friend and I are treated. My friend is slow due to many birth defects which are not his falt and he takes 30 meds which is also not his falt. All they said to us today over and over today was there was nothing that we can do about it over and over and over. My friend cannot get ID due to the fact he is dirt dirt poor. Leaving the bank today we encountered three homeless people on the corner trying to get money to survive that said they had $1300,$1500 and $2000 checks that they could not cash at all because they had no id and no agency would help them buy one just like my friend who is slow and it is not his falt at all. All three people got jobs like they are supposed to do and due to this one inadequacy could not get huge checks cashed. Wells Fargo sucks bad and permanantly. All you want is money money money and do not give a damn about anyone or anything. My friend will never be able to get an ID or these three homeless people and they cannot do banking at all. Wells Fargo does not want me or them to bank with them otherwise you would not blame my friend,me or the three homeless people for ALL BANK FRAUD. You need to catch the people that are doing it rather than change the policy for cashing checks and all checks permanantly which changed a month ago. I hate your guts big time Wells Fargo for blaming everyone and me and my friend for bank fraud that is 1000% not our falt. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Exact same thing happened to us when we were selling some furniture. My mom got an offer and they sent a check for way more than we were selling the furniture for. My mom being an auditor and my natural distrust for stuff like this, we did our research before cashing it and found out it's an obvious fake.

If anyone cashes such a check, or let's someone use their bank account to clear a check, *then you deserve all that comes to you* How the hell can someone be so fawking stupid and niave to do such a thing? In todays age? Knowing what we know about these scams. And with the internet - a two minute search will tell you all you need to know about said check and company. I put this right along the same lines as the cinnamon dare & eating a tide pod. *stupid is as stupid does*

In 2015 me and my wife sold something online and received a check in the mail. I dropped it off in the after hours box to deposit and 2 days later we are called up to the bank and accused of trying to pass a fraud check. We never had any bad checks or anything before that and had direct deposit going into our account. The bank froze our funds and the manager told us he should be calling the law on us. I begged him to because whoever sent me the check was ripping me off. He closed our account with the bank and at first was not even going to give my wife's direct deposit that had just come in to her and also turned it in against us. We had no clue what was going on. The check had never been processed or cashed. No charges were filed against us. The police found no wrongdoing on our part. But yet our funds were held up, we were kicked out of our bank, we were turned over to the bank systems which now prevents us getting another bank and looks really horrible on us...all because of a check just like this being sent to us for payment. The branch manager at the time of the Wells Fargo in Thomasville NC was just a young arrogant punk who could care less about the actual evidence basically just sent us up s*** creek because he could abuse his seniority like that. I never saw this news report and if I had I would have definitely pursued legal action against him for doing that to us. We got scammed. We got screwed by the bank. And the person that started it all was safely behind a computer somewhere and the police had no way to track him down and said even if they could find him there was no crime because the check was not cashed.

Had a couple of "clients" send me exact amounts owed. Did my usual due diligence: check print, spelling, font, routing number lookuo, addresses (one had same address as bank with street, building number, city, state but different zip codes{?}), Contacting the banks (companies and accounts exist {sometimes the company's name is just placed on a random account; in two cases, correct company, address and routing is correct check numbers were correct, funds were available) only to be told two to five days later after the regular holding time for some checks, the checks were fake. Contact the issuing company too to not only see if such a person exist but to alert them of a/several checks with their info is circulating.
Why NOT just cash the checks & "NOT" send any money back to the scammers. If they ask for the money, just tell them it hasn't clear my bank yet. When it does, you'll get your money, otherwise be patient. What's the rush?😃 .

What u do is get one of those checks from somebody else, not ur name, look @ what state it says the check is from, get a fake i.d. with the different name & the i.d. must be from the same state the check was issued from, go 2 that state, find a liquor store that cashes checks, put some super glue on ur fingers 2 hide ur finger prints, sign the check, put a fake phone number on the check under ur fake signature & whalla, u got some cash!!! But remember, ur breaking many laws so no matter what, it's a stupid idea, unless u dont get caught, but with 2days technology, the odds are against u, damn it's hard 2 be a criminal in 2days climate, what I'd give 2 be a criminal in the 50's & 60's, must of been so easy back inda day!!!

They pull a scam similar on Craigslist, if your selling an item, beware, they try to send you a check for alot more than your asking price, and say they will send someone to pick up the item and tell you you can keep 50$for your trouble, and give the rest of money to the guy that picks up the item, I was selling a bike once for 150$ they sent me a check for 1500$, thinking I was stupid, and cash it, big scam they sent check from California, and had people in Pennsylvania, ready to pick up Bike and rest of money, quite a big scam ring of garbage heads. eBay simalar scams as well, selling tires there tryed same thing there.
