    Yes, they get away with it.

    And yes, the bank would have made the person who deposited the bad check pay the money back. From the banks perspective, they are out that money as well, and they can't get at the person who actually stole the money, so they go after the person who deposited the money instead. And the bank will win, there's no way out of that one. You'll never be able to get a bank account again anywhere until that money is paid back.

    the first thing you do is check the routing number, normally it's 9 digits. if the scam check states it's from charter one bank, but the routing information states it's from RBS citizens, then you know something is up right there. You can't scam the scamer, by cashing the check. it don't work that way.
