Aaa Visa — Travellers cheques scam
I recieved an e-mail from a John Doherty with e-mail address [protected]@yahoo.com. His scam was simple. he was a tour consultant with offices in china and finland but needs me to recieve 4500 US dollars in travellers cheques(AAA Visa in 9 bills of $500 ea.) I was to cash them at my bank, take 10% for my trouble and western union the rest to a marcus richard in china. I recieved the cheques, but believe me they a fakes and would have gotten me in trouble if i wasn't suspicious to begin with. Many have been decieved by this scam. Cashed the cheques and when it was discovered that the cheques are fake, the victim is required to pay the money back to the bank. The scammer has then gotten away with $4000 or more. My bank has confirmed that the cheques are indeed fake. Please spread the word. I want to shut this guydown for good. Thank you.
