Scams are bad enough, but when a scam suggests it’s helping motherless children or is “Christian” in its mission is even worse. Here’s a fake check scam I got in my email the other day. You’ll notice many errors although some differences are due to this being from England where some words are spelled differently.

I have highlighted the red flag with comments in red.

This check will be bogus and you’ll be out the money you forward on to this scam), then be forwarding them via Western Union or Money Gram to us. And for this service, we agree to pay you 10% percent of each amount you collect from the donors. Also note that you will be notified a week before any donation arrives at your door step.


1. Receive payment (Via Money Order/US cerified cashier’s check) from our kind and humble donors twice every week. (This will be a fake check and could result in your losing your account and going to jail!)

2. Cash the Payments at your Bank

3. Deduct 10%, which will be your percentage/pay on Payment processed.

4. You will then forward the balance via Western Union Money (which means there will be no recourse to get your money back when you realize you’ve been scammed.)

Transfer according to our instruction.

Mr Mike Wayne

Please remember that legitimate companies do NOT need people to cash their checks. Too many people have lost thousands of dollars and their bank privaledges to scams that involve depositing a fake check and sending money to the scammer. Some have even been arrested for cashing a fake check. If you ever come across any offer of money that involves using your bank account to transfer or process money, DON’T DO IT!!!
