Mobile Deposit Check Scam
There is a new version of check scams involving mobile deposit. A fraudster contacts the victim through email or social media posing as a potential employer or lender. The fraudster may explain that they need to deposit funds to the consumer’s account or need assistance moving money from overseas. The consumer is asked to give their bank account information, including their online or mobile banking login and password.
The fraudster uses the information to deposit a fake check and then withdraws the funds before the bank knows the check is fraudulent. The victim is left owing the bank money when the check bounces.
