False – Sometimes con artists will ask you to deposit a cheque and give them only part of the money. If the financial institution later discovers that the cheque is counterfeit, you will have to pay back all of the money, even if it’s several weeks later. Ask your financial institution if the cheque has cleared completely before you withdraw the money or write cheques against it. Do not deposit cheques as favours to people you do not know.
Fraud is a crime. It could happen to anyone. Stay informed.
