BBB warns of
check schemes
Counterfeit check scams are defrauding consumers across the state. The counterfeit cashier's check is usually from a well known bank with most checks coming in the form of International Lottery Winnings with the instructions that the money from the check is to be used to pay the fees and taxes. The consumer is instructed to deposit the check and send the funds back to the company. Typical losses are $1,000 to $3,000. Contact the BBB if you receive any mailings concerning this scam, (785) 232-0454.
