    Re: travelers checks scam

    Oh yeah, all the time. Western Union a big warning sign. In my case, they were going after the resumes on Monster and Careerbuilder. I had to finally make them unsearchable.

    Checks are fake. What happens is the bank doesn't clear them right away, so the bank credits the account in advance. By the time the checks are found not to be good, the crooks got the money and the bank goes after the account holder to recover their money. If over a certain amount, it's a felony and guess who they go after?
