Report on AMG refund cheque fraud

Source: admin Release Time: 06:27:39 2018-12-17

We told you last month about the $505 million in checks going back to 1.1 million people who got an online payday loan from a company affiliated with AMG Services. And we’ve heard from many of you that you got your check and cashed it. We’ve just heard, though, that scammers are trying to get into the act, using fake checks that look like the real one. So far, we’ve heard that scammers have given job applicants a check that looks like an AMG refund check, and then asked people to deposit the check and use the money to go buy supplies for the supposed employer.

Here’s what you need to know if you get a check from the FTC’s settlement with AMG: If you get a refund from the FTC, just deposit or cash the check within 60 days. You don’t have to pay for an FTC refund, and you don’t have to give any information to cash a refund check. If you have questions about your AMG refund check, go to the FTC’s AMG refunds page, or call the refunds administrator at 1-866-730-8174.

Legit employers will never pay you by telling you to deposit a check and wire money back to them – or buy stuff for them. Anyone who does is scamming you.

    Called, went to voice mail, and had over a minute of unidentifiable background noise. Caller may not have known the call was made.
