Fake Check Scams Fraud Alert

The Federal Trade Commission wants you to know that counterfeit check scams are on the rise. The scammers use high quality printers and scanners to make the checks look real. Some of the checks contain authentic-looking watermarks. These counterfeit checks are printed with the names and addresses of legitimate financial institutions. Even though the account and routing numbers listed on a counterfeit check may be real, the check still can be fake.

Please review the Fake Check Scams brochure to learn more.
