If you get a strange cheque in the mail, think twice before you cash it. North Bay Police are warning residents that a scammer is trying to fraud people by sending cheques in the mail. They are posing as a Canadian market research company, and offer the cheques as part of a “shopping experience research project”. They will ask you to transfer 80-per cent of the cheque to other accounts then keep the left over amount for yourself. If this has happened to you, please contact police.
