Florida Default Law Group To Be Subject To A Massive Counterfeit Check Scam In The Next Few Days, Hundreds of Counterfeit Bank Checks Sent Out Nationwide For $1,990.00, this is the old email scam whereby you are contacted by an unknown source, in this case to work at home and make $650.00 a week all you have to do is deposit the check for $1,990 from the Florida Default Law Group and in the next day or so when the check clears take out your $650 and send the difference, $1,340, Western Union using a specific code, do this and you will receive another check next week.
The Florida Default Law Group checks were sent Fed-Ex overnight on Thursday 3/24/2011 to hundreds of unsuspecting victims so that everyone received the checks on the same day, Friday 3/25/2011.
I received a series of calls on Friday evening from people all over the USA asking me if this was a scam as I had wriiten about just such a check scam a few years ago when "they" targetted me, and the "they" were Nigerian Bank Fraud scammers working out of Canada and California, see below;

NATIONWIDE REGIONS BANK SCAM, THE FIRST COUNTERFEIT CHECK CAME TO THE PO BOX OF SARASOTA PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR BILL WARNER, BIG MISTAKE !
LOS ANGELES—A Nigerian national who operated a money-transfer business in Chino has been sentenced to 97 months in federal prison for his role in a scheme that bilked hundreds of victims out of more than $1.5 million in a scam that had schemers sending bogus checks to victims and falsely telling them they had won a sweepstakes or another lie to induce them to negotiate the fraudulent checks.
Alvin Chiemezie Asieru, 39, who resided in Chino prior to his arrests last March, was sentenced Monday by United States District Judge John F. Walter, who also ordered Asieru to pay full restitution to his victims.
Asieru pleaded guilty last year to one count of mail fraud, admitting that he participated in an international telemarketing scheme that defrauded almost 500 victims from across the United States. The scheme involving Asieru is a variation of a scam now commonly seen where fraudulent checks are sent to victims with false claims that they had for some reason received a windfall. Asieru’s scheme in particular involved sending bogus checks to victims, telling them that they had won a contest, had been chosen to participate in a promotion, or were being offered employment as “secret shoppers.”
The victims were instructed to deposit the checks, wire most of the funds through MoneyGram, and report the MoneyGram transaction number to someone associated with the scheme. Armed with the transaction number, Asieru was able to collect the proceeds of the wire transfer through a MoneyGram terminal at his Chino business, SABIC Group. Asieru then shared the proceeds with co-conspirators in Toronto Ontario, Canada. Asieru also transferred over $680,000 of the proceeds to various banks in Nigeria. The victims later learned that the checks they had deposited into their bank accounts were fraudulent and that they were responsible for the money they had now lost.
