ThanksI had a check sent to me for $1850, from Rockstar energy drink. My bank held the check for 21 days til it cleared, I couldn’t take any funds out before it cleared my bank had my back just in case it was a fraudulent check. They ppl who sent it was P. O and told them I can’t take any funds out until the check CLEARS. Your bank can easily run the routing number and bank account number of the check to see if it’s fake.

Mine wasn’t fake however I knew that they were a scam and I didn’t send any money to them. They got scammed instead. I knew it was a scam because No job or company pays you upfront without working. Secondly when I got it I had to text the number they gave me, tell person the check number and then I got another person that contacted me. Then I got the emails giving me instructions sending X amount to some dude in Texas for the wrapping.

Thanks scammers for the free money. My advice deposit it BUT DONT TOUCH ITMY BANK FROZE IT UNTIL IT CLEARED WHEN IT DOES you just got free money from ppl who scammed you. Boy person was PO when i said bank is holding it and by federal law they can hold it for 10 45 days til it CLEARS. I like credit unions policies, unlike other banks. Hope this helps. I to have been mailed a check over $4000 to wrap my car from rush energy drink I am to deposit the check and keep $500 of it and pay the person who wraps my car the rest, theres a phone to fax my deposit slip to after I mark all my account info off of it when I call the fax a man answers it you can barely understand him and there are little kids screaming in the back ground some official business huh don’t do it therr are companys that do pay you something for doing this but there is a very long waiting list and they only pay about $100 $200 ty for listening I wish there was something that can be done about these scamsWow this is really going on, I’m happy I google it.
