Cheque Scamming is an easy way to get scammed. Scammers will often offer to send you a personal cheque in exchange for wiring money into their account.
To prevent cheque scamming from happening to you, avoid wiring money into unverified or untrusted accounts in exchange for a cheque deposit.
One way to be safe from any form of cheque scamming is to avoid any request that looks too good to be true. Most likely it is.
