Yeah we get many of those too. But I also get them a lot in my email saying that my check for 1million dollars is ready, and they just need ur bank account to wire the money...

I throw away all checks that come, unless I was expecting one from something legitimate.  I couldn't imagine the mess somones bank account would be in if they fell for it.  What could they possibly do to fix it???? :dontknow:

I personally keep stuff like that because they amuse me.
It's not necessarily a scam, but the 'ads' and stuff that get sent through the mail that have
fake bills ranging anywhere from a fake $100 to a $1,000,000 are all kept in a little box just for my
own amusement and memory.

I thought one in my email was legit but I got like 20 money gram things in the mail and he said I was to make my bank rush them so I could send out money  I told him no that I was not doing that on the phone this guy called me and I called money gram and gave them the numbers on them and they said those have been cashed and the ones I had were fake so I told that guy that and he told me if I didn't do it he was going to call the FBI if I didn't do what he said,  I told him to go ahead and call them.. Still waiting for them to come get me lol

I have received these types of marketing for mystery shoppers. The check is so real and it is made out to "Chase" bank so it seem real that I also bank with Chase. Hmmm...I knew it was fake so I didn't do anything with it. I went online to check that morning and found that were many others who scammed. They actually cashed the check and their bank account was wiped out after they cash that check. What a nightmare. Remember this when trying to post checks in your account.

yes i have gotten one of those scam checks. i deposited it because the bank said it was real but i did not wire ne money. i deposited it thinking u know i'd keep the money. so when they did put a hold on it it was for like a week and so i waited and then it came out to be that even though the check was real there were insufficant funds in the account used to make out the check. so all i had to pay was the handling and processing fee that went along with the bank's policy that fit in the subject of fake or returned checks. it was only like 3 something so i wasnt out much and it worked out somewhat good considering my money was safe lol. hey i tried. lol.
