that's the only thing like i said with this one... with the contest one i called the credit union it was from and they said the same thing... good account.. fake check... but this one. the bank said the check is good i told them the account number off of it and the check number. they told me who it was from, made out to, the amount n so on and said all was good. and like i said. money mart said they won't go after me. they will go after them. so if it does turn out to be a scam, me cashing it could be a good thing. as they might catch this person.. to where with the contest one i did'nt cash... they are clueless a year later as to who it is really from and no way to get the guy... if i wastern union them money and it does go to them... westion union and almost all places that have western union have cameras... the guy would have to show id and so on.. there for there would be no where to hide and he just might get cought.

ok i will just get this out of the way so no one thinks that i have no idea of what i am talking about, my fiancee' is now in prison for forgery for making fake payroll, personal, and cashiers checks, that i watched him make. so i know a fake when i see one. i just received a cashiers check for $4,880.00 and they want me to do secret shopping,
Gap: $50.00
wal-mat: 40.00
Western union: 2,700.00
western union fee:140.00
Money gram: 1,400.00
money gram fee: 50.00
evaluation and training pay: 500.00

does this sound familiar to any one?
and in my opinion this check is a fake and a bad fake at that. not to mention i found it odd that they conveniently located the bank phone number one the check. the bank it was wrote off of was Bank of Cattaraugus which is located in NY but the address on the check is TX, not to mention that the automated service for the bank was also a poorly done job. and the phone # for the company is a private #. how many companies do you know of that have private numbers? i am writing this so if anyone else gets a check like this then they can be pro active about it. here are a few helpful tips.

first: if it comes in an envelope with no return address, or an address that can not be tracked to the appropriate company, i would be extremely cautious

second: if the check has a phone number on it, do not call the number on the check, look up the banks number your self and call them.
 
third: if you did not sign up for this company and they are soliciting you then i would not cash it.


this is all the advice i can give as i cant personally look at the checks but i know mine is a fake i hope this help out. i would hate to see someone get there hard earned money stolen.

see that's the thing.. mine is somewhat like that. but it is a company i did sign up with. yes there is a number on the check. but before i called it.. i looked up the bank online also. so i also got there 800 # from online. i called both numbers. both were the same and said it is good. so we'll see when i go out wendsday and do this. as i said. if it is a fake then atleast they might catch this person.... as far as looks of the cashier's check... this one and the one i got from the sweepstakes thing both look totalyyyyy real! water mark n all.. and the sweeps stakes one the bank even said it was a real check....  but the account it was drawn on was'nt the person who sent the check's account. and the check number was a check number that should'nt be printed for about another 2 months the numbers are not that far ahead yet. but yeah with that one i took it to 4 diff banks in my town and they all said it looked real and they would cash it. the one bank got the credit union info for me and the number so i  could call to make sure and that's the only reason i know it was fake. no one else. even the bank maniger could tell. and it was from a well known credit union in florda. so always becarefull. im doing this just so that if it is fake the sob gets cought! so i'll keep you all updated... i have'nt had the time to get it cashed yet n do the stuff on the list as i just got hired at wally world :P woohoo i love that store! lol

the checks my fiancee' made were real checks but the bank account belonged to someone else, the checks can be bought at office depot, as can the magnetized ink they are printed with, they are sold for small companies. the thing with mine though is the magnetized ink, the one i got was printed with plain printer ink. to someone who doesn't know the difference they look the same. and mine has perforations on it which is a big thing since the checks for small businesses from office depot have the perforations and the and the ones from the bank do not (not there any way) also they didn't do a very good job with the bank logo, its blurry

my are both real check from the bank and the credit union. just with the credit union.. the one the sweeps stakes was from. they said that that check should not of been printed yet. so they are looking into it as they feel it had to be someone working there that is doing it.

i meant to comment on this earlier but forgot. the id thing with  western union.. if they are making the checks most likely they are making fake id's to match the name they tell you to send the money to so no they would not get caught these people tend to move around a lot. and have a lot of different id's so they don't have to use the same name and they may be in S.F. today and next week in N.Y. the likelihood of them getting caught soon is slim, in a year or so however they may very well be in prison

right i don't care how long it takes as long as they are cought. but as far as what  i meant with id was'nt photo id. i mean cameras.  as i did cash the check useing money mart and  did everything the list said to. have all the recipes here and made copies of them as money mart said to. so far nothing has come back. it's been a few days but we shall see. the other 500 is in my lock box where it will stay for now. even tho money mart said it would'nt come back on me. i'm not taking any chances with me spending that extra. as far as what i bought at walmart and that they are in the basement still in the bags. i refuse to open any of it or spend any of that 500 until i know for sure nothing is comming back. money mart said that when a check is reversed and so on it's done within 30 days. but i'm going to wait about 2 months before i do anything to see. so i'll keep you all posted.

anything that says use western union to my experince is a scam.. plus no one in thier right mind would send anyone that kind of cash. no legit company would do that. is this an offer that you did on fusion and this is happening to you cause of it?  I heard alot of bad news about shoppers.

If anyone recieves stuff like this.. I did once didnt fall for it.. said the same thing got a check for 12,000 and said to call this number . I did call just out of curiousity it was thier home phone you heard kids in the back ground and the kid had to put down the phone to get the parent. I waited like 5 mins waiting.. then they wanted my number that was on the letter. lol.. they told me cash it take to the western union and in return they will send me my allotted winnigs of 250,000 yea right lol.. so I went to the site.. rip off type that in and you can read whats new on the rip off scene.. I never cashed that check and went to that site and 10 others had recieved the same thing I had.. Big scam. so always ck out .. rip off  before cashing anything .
