I met him on a app & he said he’d write me a $2,300 check if i gave somebody $1,700 for being his “house boy” while he’s out in canada working with fino construction, so he sent the check and i go and deposit it on mobile banking then i’m looking more at the check on the back where it said mobile deposit only it was a different signature on the front& back of the check , & it just didn’t seem right so i researched it and i found you guys and now i feel dumb as hell 😭 & my bank account is shut down. So yeah be careful out there don’t let money blind you .
