It's from Allied Consumer Research. The Check looks very official and its for 1500.00!!
I called the number and some African guy answered (red flag #1) and he asked if I cashed the check yet and I said no. He told me to cash the check and call him for further instructions to complete my a.ssignment. image

I found it strange that he would be working on a Sunday. (Red flag #2)

I could easily take the money and run but there has to be a catch somewhere. And don't laugh and say its obvious bullsh-t becuz I know most likely it is. Nothing in life is free.

So tell me what y'all know bout this.....my lucky day or is it a scam??

I almost died when I read "The check looks very official". sh*t is a scam son. You cash that check and the bank will come after you to get back their money. My man said he found it strange the African was working on a Sunday. This thread is jokes.

I'm not sure if you're being serious but a cheque for $1500 in the mail should have been the first and only red flag you needed to know it's a scam.

There are a ton of scams out here to mainly target the elderly & the unaware... If a deal is too good to be true, then it usually is... in this situation, I would have told the guy I already cashed the check just to see what he would say.. but DON'T cash that check dude.

I have received a few scam calls in my time.. & I just play alone with them when Im bored..

Like one time.. this Indian guy called and was like... you won a million dollars & benz... I knew it was a scam so I just played along... So I started talking like a old man, giving the guy false info & making him repeat stuff over and over again(he also told me to write a series of numbers down also... I was like uh huh.. im writing it sir )... So after I'm done entertaining myself with the call, I asked when will I receive my benz and million dollars... the guy was like.. Mr. Walker(wrong name) you would first have to go to wal mart and wire $4,800 to the number I gave you...

After that... I honestly snapped.. I replied... "dude, ... you're going to hell for this sht.. preying on elderly people..." the guy hung up... but I'm still shocked.. like its really people out here tryna get over on people like this.. so I called the number back & told dude he was wrong for doing this... homie replied... " get off my phone, I'm trying to make money"

word to the wise young brother....if you ever have any doubt when it come to MONEY.....then its too good to be true...keep the check for proof(cuz u made need proof since he has ur info) but never cash it, ever. This is a white collar crime so it is a federal offense....good luck man.

Scam b. If you even try to cash this you'll owe the bank back the money.

Don't cash it, it's a scam.

My homie got a check like that for like 1k and didn't know who or where it came from, but took it to a check cashing place and cashed it.

A week later the check cashing place blowing his line up talking about the check was fraudulent and he needs to repay them.

Dude ignored them

Police come to his house with a warrant and he got arrested and had to pay restitution.

Your friend sounds exactly like some of the slow cats ive dealt with. I tell em u can mess up ur acct/s up & go to jail knowlingly depositing bs checks. Im be sayin to myself "ur dumb a.ss really think some one just gonna give u some money that u dont know,especially when u cant get people u know to pay up lol". Now some people I speak with got caught up thinking they working for a legit company but actually doing the dirty work for the scam artists...thats one of sadiest parts of job hunting cuz now u owe mo money,may have lower credit score n future jobs may pass u up cuz this bs.

Yeah its a scam. My fam got a $3,000 check like that and cashed it at the bank. They didn't realize it till a couple weeks later and turned it into a loan she had to pay back. They were all shocked it got cashed. Came in handy tho.

My mom got one of those checks for 3 grand once

Some lotto she won in the uk or some sh*t

I read te letter said that she had won like 300 grand

The check they sent was to pay them for the taxes and delivery of the actual grand prize, after we had cashed them

The check usually coming from a company that has nothing to do with the uk lotto, a legit business with their actual number and sh*t, that's what makes it appear look legit

My homie got a check for $3200.00 from someone on craigslist, secret shopper. They act like they will pay you $400 or so to do some research. Really all they say is deposit the check into your account, send me $2800.00 back and you keep $400.00 The check was a perfect fake and it would've cleared i'd say some banks.

Anyway, the check clears at first then after a few weeks they figure out its a fraud and you pay them back or go to jail.
