A check scam that is going around right now can cost you if you fall for it.
People are alerting officials that they have received a letter in the mail from a bank, which is offering you $80,000. The letter includes a check for $2,500, and you are asked to wire bank fees totaling $1,500. However, the check is fake, so by the time you deposit the check for $2,500 and wire $1,500, you're out $4,000.
Industry experts say anytime you have to wire money in order get money, that's a huge red flag.
