Well, I ended up getting two checks that I thought were fraudulent. The first bank of Omaha was the first bank I contacted and they confirmed the check was a fake and suggested that I take the check to my bank to have it faxed to them which I am planning on doing. The second bank I called for this other check I received in the mail said that they couldn't confirm if the check was fake or not unless I was there in person which can't happen because It's only located in florida. The funny thing is, the second check just came out of nowhere and for no reason so it was still pretty easy to tell that it's a fake. I'm glad I found this site though, if this ever happens to me again I'll know where to go or maybe I'll be able to help someone else.Be careful about bringing a check into the bank!
We have seen people that have been arrested when the show up at the back with a fraudlent check, and the back charges THEM with the fraud . . . they will say since you are holding the check you are in on the whole thing and knew it was counterfeit and were trying to defraud the bank. Why can't you just fax it to the bank on your own? Or, better yet, since you know they are counterfeit, shred them and be done with it. If you do feel the need to turn them in to someone, I would call the police and turn them into the cops and let them connect with the bank but do NOT take either of these checks into the bank!
