Counterfeit Check Scams

The North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper is warning the legal community to be on the lookout for counterfeit check scams after law firms in Gastonia and Oxford recently reported receiving phony checks for $85,000 and $295,000 from scammers who asked them to wire the money to bank accounts in Asia.

I assume this scam is not limited to attorney, so be careful, check with your bank prior to depositing any funds and more important: do no transfer any funds prior to bank approval.
