News Police warn about slick fast cash con SHARE ON: Rocco Frangione, contributor, Monday, Dec. 12th, 2016 A slick scam has surfaced in Northern Ontario that could con you out of thousands of dollars. Scammers first send you a cheque where you keep $500 for yourself and deposit the rest in your bank account. Based on what’s left over, you deposit that amount with one of your own cheques into a specific TD account and that’s when your headaches start. Although the scammers get your money from your personal cheque, the cheque they sent you was stolen. Once your bank clears that first cheque and determines it was stolen, it will come after you for the full amount.
