Did you deposit a check or cash a check, you have not told us what happened.

I think that 17 is considered a MINOR. In Georgia, some banks will not allow anyone under 18 to write checks. I have no idea how that will come into play with a counterfeit check situation. You need to explain to the bank what happened to you regarding the work at home scam.

Tell the bank what happened, show them the WU receipt if you still have it. Also take them the emails you have with the instructions to cash the check and WU the rest. Try to make a payment agreement with them. Before you goto the bank file a police report with the Racine PD and take a copy of the report to the bank. Do this as quickly as possible to show the bank that you are not trying to scam them and are willing to work this out with them.
