I read in USA Today that there is a problem with Check Scams. The scammer pretends that you won a Sweepstakes or will get a lot of money, then sends you a bad check and then asks you to return a percentage of the money as a "tax or fee." The check deposit arrives in your bank account so you think it's real. Then, shortly afterwards, it bounces - but you've already sent money back to the scammer. The newspaper advised people not to fall for this one and that there is no reason you would need to send a percentage of money back to someone. Has anyone heard of this practice?
