  • Have you been instructed to "wire" funds out of the country as soon as possible?
  • Have you been asked to assist in the distribution of money from another country?
  • Is the amount of the check more than the prices you were selling the item for?
  • Is the check from an individual or business you have been dealing with over the Internet?
  • Have you been informed that you were the winner of a lottery or sweepstakes?
  • Have you been asked to send funds to another country to assist with the release of an inheritance or assist someone in relocating to the U.S.?
