Avoiding Check Scams

They're scams that cost victims on average $3,500 but if we know what to watch out for we can avoid being a victim all together.

Now several local agencies, banks, and the post office are teaming up to educate us on fake check scams. Usually they work like this, we get a phony check in the mail and when we cash it, instead of getting money our funds are transferred to another account.

If you think you've been a victim of check fraud call the postal inspection office at:
