Bad cheque scam: Names and documents

Here is a list of some of the different names and documents that fraudsters have used in BC. Please note that real people with the same names may be the victims of a fraudster or of coincidence, but are not suspected of wrongdoing.

For convenience, these names are sorted alphabetically by ruse. However, because a fraudster may use the same name in a different ruse, you will want to check the complete list of names sorted alphabetically to the right. In the list containing the ruses, there may be links to publications with related information or documents. Of course, new names appear regularly, usually with a Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo email address.

(For more details regarding some of these names, as well as more names and details of specific frauds reported by Ontario lawyers, go to LawPro’s “Avoid-a-claim” blog: Confirmed Frauds and Fraudster Names and Huge collection of fake IDs, documents and cheques given to lawyers by fraudsters.)

And learn more about how to protect yourself from the bad cheque scam.
