Scam Alert - Check for Cash
Wed, 11/13/2019 - 00:37

Hello Campus Community. We would like you to be aware of a scam that is going around. Here's what is occurring: a stranger will approach you and say that they are unable to cash a check because their bank is closed (or some other excuse). The person will then ask if you will give them cash in exchange for their check and, in return, they will give you some extra money for helping them out. In most cases, the check is bad, and you will lose your money. They may also follow you to the cash machine and take your money once it is dispensed.
