Don’t Fall For Fake Check Or Mobile Deposit Scams

Cybersecurity Tip: Don’t fall for fake check or mobile deposit scams. These scams typically involve a scammer contacting their victim through email or social media with an opportunity to make money.  Scammers ask the victim to deposit a check or request their internet banking credentials to deposit a check through their mobile deposit app.  Once the check is deposited, the scammer requests a portion of the funds be sent back to them.  The check will later be returned as fraudulent and the victim will be out the amount of money that they sent the scammer.
