U Travel Guide U Travel Guide manufactured a counterfeit check with my bank account number. They got $399 from my bank account. I have filed fraud report at bank and will talk with police after the holiday. The same day, I got a robo call by a woman named "Sam" who claimed to be from "Travel Promotions."  Check cashed at Illinois bank.

Someone created a counterfeit check with my bank account info on it. They got $399 from my bank account.  The check was made out to "U Travel Guide,"  Looks like check was cashed at Bridgeview Bank Group that appears to be near Chicago, IL.

Coincidentally, I got a suspicious phone call that same day.  A woman called, identifying herself as "Sam" and she said she was from Travel Promotions - thanked me for being a good customer (I tried to ask her what company and that I am not a customer..  She barged on talking - robo call.  She was offering a free vacation. Throughout the call, she would pause, ask questions, like if I had a vallid debit or credit card.  I said nothing. She'd say "great!" and keep going.  Eventually, she said something like "sorry to bother you. bye."  - maybe when I didn't give a credit card number?  Can't recall exactly.  I suspect this call is connected to the counterfeit check.

I'm not so sure Travel Promotions has anything to do with this.  I contacted them and left a message about what was happening.  I've seen it before where scammers say they are from a known business, while of course they are not.

Anyway, not happy and hope these scammers get caught and jailed.  The money they scammed - my bank has it frozen pending investigation.
