Scam 5 - Western Union Scam
If you receive a cheque from “Mike Wholesale LTD,” pleasebe cautious. It is likely a scam.
You may be instructed to deposit the cheque into your own personal account, withdraw a specified portion for yourself, spend another specified portion on merchandise which you can keep, and then use Western Union to transfer the remaining funds to someone in another location. They will most likely state that this must be completed within three days.
If you receive a similar cheque and set of instructions, please be cautious. Do not respond to the request, and don't hesitate to contact police who may have further information.
