Got my checking account raided last year.

Here's how they did it.

Got a bank routing number.
Got an account number.

Printed up some checks with a name on them.
Went to Walmart and the ID was validated via a fake driver's license.

The routing number and the account number were valid. Funds are in the account to cover the check.

(The name on the account is not checked......just the ID against the printed check)

And poof goes your money.

If you have fallen into a counterfeit check scam, then you may register your complaint with the FTC -> 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). Alternatively, you may call the local post office or report it with the U.S. Postal inspection service. You local post office number is there in the blue pages. You may also report such frauds with the State AG's office or with the consumer protection agencies in your locality.
