Check Scam Attempts to Use Fraudulent MEMIC Checks

PORTLAND, ME, January 22, 2009—Fraudulent checks bearing a MEMIC logo and name have apparently been mailed by scammers who are attempting to lure unsuspecting victims to further their fraud by cashing or depositing these checks. This is an attempt at an illegal scam and the associated checking account has been closed. Those attempting to cash or deposit these checks could be an unwitting participant in a crime and, ultimately, could lose thousands of dollars.

Anyone who receives an unexpected check with the MEMIC name or logo and who does not do regular business with the company should be suspicious of these checks and should contact MEMIC if there is any doubt.
