Fake Checks 

The National Consumers League (NCL), the nation's oldest nonprofit consumer organization, has developed a website to educate consumers about fake check scams. NCL created the site in collaboration with the Alliance for Consumer Fraud Awareness, a coalition of consumer and business organizations, government agencies, and companies that are committed to fighting fake check scams.

The goal of the site is to educate consumers on how to recognize and avoid potential scams.  Information is presented in a format that is easy to read and understand.  The site includes video clips showing actual people, so consumers can see firsthand how scammers try to operate.  The videos provide great examples of several of the more popular scams currently in operation.

So visit and reduce your chances of becoming the victim of a fraud scheme and losing your hard-earned money.
