Police chastise rock throwers
In a typical scenario, in exchange for goods or services, the potential victim is offered a cheque that the buyer supposedly already has in his/ her possession. The amount of the cheque will be more than is owing, the potential victim is asked to take the counterfeit cheque and reimburse the difference.
This fraud capitalizes on cheque processing delays. The bank will hold the victim responsible for the counterfeit cheque. Never accept cheques larger than the transaction value and always wait for the cheque to be fully cleared before delivering the goods or services. If it sounds to good to be true, it simply is.
