Manulife Financial Fake Check Scam Fredericton Ontario

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Scammers are transmitting fraudulent 'Winning Notification' of $40,000. 'North American Lottery Game' on photocopied letterhead of Manulife Financial, Peter Jacos (likely pseudo name); 473-5 Brookside Dr, Fredericton, NB, ON E38824 Canada; Tel: +1(647) 889-2356; Fax +1(888)730-2165. This criminal enterprise is forwarding fraudulent varying $ checks approximating $4,000. for 'Applicable Surcharges / Govt Tax' which the recipient is asked to RETURN $2,950. to Greenwood to receive the balance of your 'winnings'...RIGHT!
Problem is the preliminary (and only check you will ever see) is a forged check to our subsidiary; TCS Mgmt. We have alerted the authorities and the criminals will be apprehended.

The checks sent to victims are forgeries, but they're so realistic that even bank tellers may be fooled. By the time the checks bounce, the victims have already wired the money to the crooks. Because bank customers are responsible for the checks they deposit, the victims of these scams are left to repay the bank the money they withdrew against the bad check.
