Check Fraud – How to protect yourself!
Despite a steady drop of checks in circulation, check fraud remains tenaciously persistent. Fraudsters continue to take advantage and engage in illegal and deceptive check fraud schemes. Fraudsters use a variety of different types of check fraud to steal money from people and businesses.
Beginning in December of 2022, the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office received numerous complaints of mail theft. The suspects were targeting businesses and stealing incoming and outgoing checks from mailboxes, mainly during the overnight hours on the weekends. The total amount of theft in the Village of Greenville alone surpassed $500,000.
The checks were later altered and fraudulently cashed into various bank accounts throughout the U.S, via mobile deposit or at ATMs. Similar cases of fraud are happening throughout the Fox Valley and Northeast Wisconsin, all of which appear to be related.
Fraudsters use a variety of different types of check fraud to steal money from people and businesses. Check out our blog post on the most common types of check fraud that could impact you or your business.
