Common Check or Money Order Fraud Indicators

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Did you receive this check for an item you sold on the Internet?
  • Is the amount of the check written for more than the item's selling price?
  • Did you receive the check via an overnight delivery service?
  • Did you receive this check as the result of email communication?
  • Is the check drawn on a different individual's account than the purchaser?
  • Did you receive this check as the result of winning an international lottery you didn’t enter?
  • Did the payee write the check for more than they owed and then ask you to refund a portion or send it to a third party?

Common Fraud Indicators When Sending Money

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you sending money overseas to receive a deposit from another country?
  • Have you been instructed to wire, send, or ship money to someone in another country for an emergency situation that you cannot confirm?
  • Were you paid for facilitating money transfers through your account or through a PayPal account?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be involved in a scam.
