Craigslist Ads Checks

Important Information about January 2018 Check Scams


Counterfeit checks largely originating from Craigslist Ads have been in circulation throughout the recent weeks.

The checks in question have thus far been distributed with amounts to be paid ranging between $1,240.00 - $14,000, and tend to begin with serial number 5377xx. These checks are being mailed claiming to pay for Craiglist ad items, auto purchases, or work-at-home scams.

If you receive a check that you suspect might be counterfeit, or another similarly suspicious check, please see a member of the InTouch Credit Union staff at your local branch, or contact our Member Care department, at (800) 337-3328, Option 5.
