What is unsolicited check fraud?
Frequently Asked Question
Have you ever received a check in the mail that you weren’t expecting? It could look like a rebate check or a refund for overpayment. Scammers will send fake checks to people in the mail and hope they will blindly sign and deposit it. Instead of getting free money the depositor is actually unwitting authorizing memberships, loans or other longer-term commitments that could cost thousands of dollars.
