Protect Yourself! Watch for the Signs of a Scam

Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ether, etc.) is a type of digital currency that generally only exists electronically. Scammers are always finding new ways to steal your money. One sure sign of a scam is anyone who says you have to pay by cryptocurrency. In fact, anyone who tells you to pay by wire transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. If you pay, there's almost no way to get that money back.

Neither PFS Investments nor its affiliate companies require (or accept) payment by cryptocurrency.

Protect Yourself! Watch for the Signs of Fraud

There is a counterfeit check fraud operation that is illegally mailing counterfeit checks bearing well-known company names with the purpose of misleading consumers into sending money to designated addresses in the United Kingdom and Canada. They are using the names of well-known companies on the checks in order to grant them a false air of legitimacy. Examples of names fraudulently used on such checks have included such prominent companies as The Walmart Foundation, Prudential Life Insurance Company and Primerica Life Insurance Company. Although the checks may bear the name of a reputable company, they are in fact counterfeit and cannot be cashed or deposited.

Here's how the fraud works:

The recipient may receive a letter indicating that they have won a lottery or sweepstakes prize for a significant sum, often for $250,000 or more. The letter includes an "advance check" for a small portion of the "prize," often as much as $5,000 or more. This check may bear the name of a legitimate and prominent company like those listed above. Although the listed company may be based in the United States, the letter is often postmarked from a foreign country such as Canada or the United Kingdom. The accompanying letter requests that the recipient call a number to wire money to pay "taxes" or "fees" on the prize which the enclosed check is meant to "reimburse." In fact, the enclosed check is counterfeit and will not be honored, and the fraudster simply keeps the wired money.

Neither Primerica Life Insurance Company nor its affiliate companies engage in any sweepstakes or lottery promotions, nor do they issue checks in connection with any such promotions.

If you receive a suspicious letter or check like those described, you may report the incident as a mail fraud complaint to the United States Postal Service at The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also provides valuable information on how to detect and avoid fake check scams and what to do if you sent money to a scammer on its website at
