The woman told about how scammers send checks to victims transferred the money to them

A check that came in the mail, it seemed real, but a resident of Charlotte County in Florida says it’s a fake and a scammer trying to lure her hard earned money.

It turns out, is a much more common type of fraud, it seems. The FBI provided the statistics for 2019. Not only more than $10 billion was stolen from the Americans for the past 5 years, but Florida is one of 10 States where the most active scammers, where victims lost the most.

But people have the means to fight fraud.

Tracy Barberena of Charlotte County wants to warn others after she received a very plausible check in the mail. «From behind you can see watermarks,» says the woman. «Paper quality is similar to paper checks for payment of wages».

The woman tried to find out where the check comes and called in the specified company. «It was a community for those 55 and older in the Parking lot for RV in Donna, TX»,- the woman tells. Tracy explained that in the Park she was told that they had received similar calls, but they didn’t sent no checks.

In the envelope was also of the user and another phone number. «You can use the money when the cheque will be placed in the Bank for later collection,» — said in the letter. When journalists tried to call the number listed, no one answered.

Rich Kolko, a specialist in the field of safety WINK News said, «It’s pretty hard scammers because they need to spend their money on something to send you this envelope.»

Kolko says that the scammers all are thus, if in a few days some or all of the amount appears in the Bank account of the victim. «After receiving the check the victim, they make themselves known, telling «Sorry, we overpaid you. Could you transfer the money back?»» says Tartly.

They hope that you will send them money before it will become clear that no means you are not translated.

«Save as much information as possible,» advises Tartly. «You can use the Internet. Go to the FBI site IC3, and give all the information on the website».

IC3 is a complaint center Internet crime to the FBI. Visitors can write a complaint on the website.

Tartly explains that the more people that report these scams instead ignore them, the more likely that such agencies as the FBI, will be able to find those responsible for the crimes of people and punish them.
