Teacher charged with check forgery says she was scammed
By TODD RUGER

SARASOTA -- A middle school Spanish teacher who tried to cash $2,500 worth of fake traveler's checks says she was the victim of an Internet scam, the sheriff's office said.

Deborah J. Inglin, 56, signed five checks for $500 each and gave them to an Amscot teller Friday afternoon at 5900 S. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, arrest reports state.

But the teller called Travelex, the issuing company, and verified that the checks were forged. Travelex had not yet issued the series of check numbers on Inglin's checks, and that series would be for $50 checks.

Inglin told investigators a person named Don Johnson from the United Kingdom sent her an e-mail with an employment opportunity, the sheriff's office said.

She said she was sent the traveler's checks, and was told she would get to keep 10 percent of the money from a company named Pacific Textiles if she cashed them and sent the money to various addresses.

Deputies asked for the addresses, but Inglin could not provide them, the sheriff's office said.

Inglin was arrested on felony charges of forgery and uttering forged checks, and was released on bond Friday night.

Inglin, who started teaching full-time in Sarasota County in 2005, could not be reached for comment Monday. She works at Brookside Middle School. The Sarasota County School District said she is not required to report that arrest to them, only a conviction.

Counterfeit traveler's checks have long been a favorite trick of e-mail scammers, many with the same general theme.

Someone who claims they can't cash the checks for a variety of reasons asks victims to redeem the checks. The victim is told to keep a portion of the money and send the remainder to accounts via wire transfer.

The victims and their banks often don't discover the documents are counterfeit until it is too late.

AAA-Alabama warned consumers this month about a scam in the eastern United States where counterfeit AAA Visa traveler's checks were sent.

In December, a Michigan man was arrested on charges he sent 120 packages with $2,000 to $2,500 worth of forged traveler's checks across the country.

And the West Virginia attorney general issued a warning in August after a consumer in that state "won" an online sweepstakes and was sent $3,000 worth of fake travelers checks in $500 denominations.

This is a cheque mule scam I got in today and it would appear they have had a lot of trouble from baiters Laughing What a terrible shame. It appears only to be open to Americans and Canadians - spoilsports, and as they usually want phone contact, I am ruled out on this one.

Most of the cheque mules scams are directed to North America. I can only imagine that the cheque clearance system is slower, not surprisingly, or this type of scam must be considered especialy attractive to them, for some reason.

I got one of these today. I'd like to bait him, but have no idea what to do, other than misunderstanding all the instructions, asking for clarification a million times, etc.
I assume he'll want to send me checks or something to deposit.

Any advice?

Interestingly, the address where the scammer 'lives' in London is

9 Northumb3rland 4venue,
London,
W*C2N 5*BX.
England.

A quick Google Search shows me that is the address of the NIgerian High Commission in London... Rolling Eyes

I have seen several instances of these checks, at first glance they look nice. All the bad ones I have seen start with 155 in the serial number.

Also they should be signed when purhased and counter signed when cashed. A shame the teacher did not know this, an unsigned check has NO value.

A friend of mine had this happen to her recently. She's a little naieve and had no idea what she was doing. She passed on $3500 to a scammer she said was in Italy. I sent her the line to Eater and she said she even recognized some names used to scam her.

People still fall for this, so it is vital that we keep the mugus occupied with people who have no intention of sending them money.

I just wish I had more time to pursue this sport.

How do you get them? You give them your postal adress, or have you made a postbox adress for this purpose?

@Georg: If you're a premium member, you'll have access to safe dropboxes where you can have the lads send your checks. The droperator will provide you a free scan of each item, and if you want them mailed to you, send the droperator some cash, and that'll take care of it. The one I'm working with waits until four of five checks roll in before they're sent to me....this saves postage.

The alternative would be to get your own drop box, but you'll find that it's much more cost-effective to become a premium member.

And BTW, these baits can be fun. If you have a K7 number, you'll get all sorts of angry voice mails from these mugus. The angrier they are, the more looney they become.
