Selling stuff online can be a great way to make some extra cash. Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and other sites attract a lot of buyers — and scammers.
Fake checks might look like business or personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, or a check delivered electronically.
Scammers are looking for people to help them move stolen money.
If someone you don’t know sends you a check and asks for money back, that’s a scam.
