We own Brewer Welding & Fabrication, Inc., and these checks are not valid nor authorized by us. We are a very small company. This is a big Rip-Off to the person that cashes the check. It will not clear our bank. And the person who cashes it and sends a money gram will end up losing their own money. We were just recently involved in a similar scam that was less believable. It was a sweepstakes scam. This one is more scary, because it is more plausible. We don't know if the two different scams are connected or not. Our accounts are already protected, but the ones who receive the check are caught unaware.
The gentleman was warning us of a suspected fraud when he called us about the check he received. The letter is very believable, because we have all heard of "mystery shoppers." My husband called the number on the letter, and he was astonished at how convincing the man was. When my husband said that he knew Brewer Welding & Fabrication, and that he knew the checks were fraudlent, the man hung up on him.
We checked this phone number. It is a pre-paid cell phone number from Canada.
Again, these checks are no good. You will receive no money. If your bank cashes or deposits the check, they will retrieve the money from your account as soon as they see that the check won't clear. So if you send the money on to this company via money gram, you will have lost thousands. Our bank's fraud department is working on this.
