Lately, I have been getting young women clients who have been given cheques to cash for a couple hundred dollars, although the cheques are usually a lot more. These young women cash these cheques either at their own bank or through cheque cashing places using their own identification. A few days later, the bank discovers that these cheques are fraudulent. The bank calls the police and these young women are charged with Fraud, Utter Forged Documents, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. The people who have given them the cheques are long gone and their cell phone numbers are disconnected.
So these young women face possible jail time and a criminal record. They are often asked to pay back the money if the cheque has been cashed.
Remember you can not get something for nothing. Do not be a part of this scam ! Do not jeopardize your freedom.
