Wach Fox 57
NEWBERRY COUNTY, S.C. (WACH) — Newberry County officials are warning people of an alleged check scam using legitimate companies, and a fake FBI Gmail account.
According to officials, checks are received in the mail or electronically as an advanced payment for service.
A day later people are receiving emails from the FBI stating you are involved in a money laundering scheme, and you can settle with the government, according to officials.
Officials say that after reviewing the checks and email, it is linked to Gmail and the checks are fake.
