We have seen MANY cheque fraud attempts in the past week (January 2016) at the Alert Bay Vancity Branch.
Individuals are receiving cheques in the mail along with a letter. These are not your average fraudulent cheques: They look really legitimate. They have the individual’s full name, they have a watermark on the back, the eagle that you see is embossed in high quality Gold ink.
Please pass this on and warn anyone who may be at risk to these scams especially elders/seniors.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
