Have you received a check or money order in the mail with instructions to first cash it at your bank and then send some of the funds to someone else through wire money transfer, money order or prepaid card? If so, the check/money order is counterfeit and your bank will make you cover the loss. Be aware that counterfeit checks are very hard to identify. You may have been promised a percentage of the check for employment or because of an over payment. This is a SCAM. Do not send the money and do not cash the check.
