  • International Check Processing

    I have been approached by a supposed UK-based company asking me to become a payment dispatcher. My contact states that many U.S. based clients of theirs prefer checks written on U.S. accounts. He says this causes less trouble with the clients banks.

    I have asked the following specific questions with the contact's responses in parentheses:

    Must I open an account? (No the accounts are already established and funded)
    Is my social security number required for employment? (No)
    How will I be paid? (check or cash)
    Is this all above-board and legal? (Of course, his response was yes)

    My understanding of the job is that I will have to purchase check printing software (VersaCheck was suggested) and check paper, print the checks and send via UPS or FedEx to U.S. recipients. The beginning pay is $500 US per week.

    I really want to know if this procedure violates any U.S. or international laws particularly in regard to banking, taxation or the like.

    Your comments are very much appreciated.

    It is a common scam. Do not do it and if you wish report it to the FBI.
