I recieved a check from someone named CHUN-CHEIN LARRY LIU

Address: Prudence LIM LIU
613 ROANOKE DR.
ALLEN, TEXAS 75013

The check amount was for $7,500.50.
The memo says " payment of services"

Now I'm on the internet often, I use paypal frequently but I have no idea wher ethis check came from.

It was sent overnight shipping through the mail.

I went to cash it the same day and the teller said it had insufficient funds.

What do you think? Is this check a complete fake. What do I do?

Do nothing. If anyone contacts you asking them to wire you the money/funds from that check, do not do so. It is a scam.

What bank is it drawn on? Is that the bank you tried to cash it at?

I would be careful trying to cash checks you have no idea about. Especailly cashing it at the drawing bank, if they call the customer, and the customer tells them he or she did not issue that check, the bank may call the cops and then you go to jail.

I just found out that one of the new business names they are using is

Zebra Circle International Foundation

If you get a check from that group, it is a scam.
