    American Express Gift Cheque

    I received $2500 worth of American Express Gift Cheque but each one is worth $500. On American Express website, they only mail them out in the amounts of $25, $100, not $500.

    I am asking to my self..."Is these are fake?" I want anyone's feedback weather should I cash them to a bank or not and how can you tell if these are real or not?

    First, who sent them to you?

    Second, if you choose to deposit them, you must tell bank manager that you suspect that checks could be fake. You will not lose anything from extensive doublecheck.

    Third, do not cash these checks immediately. Keeps money on account for a month at least. Sometimes check's validity confirmation can take 2-3 weeks.

    If after depositing checks you get a request to wire money back to sender(full or partial), you can be 100% sure it is a scam.
