Beware latest check scam, warns sheriff
Placeholder Image
A new check-cashing scam that relies on using big-name businesses is one of the best frauds that Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says he’s seen. In the scam, citizens receive a legitimate check in the mail made out to them. The check is accompanied by a letter explaining the recipient is a winner of a $175,000 sweepstakes.
