FMCA Check bounced

Anyone else here get a rebate check from FMCA for being a loyal customer with the hotspot, they sent me a check for $177 and I deposited it and it bounced! I contacted them and they said there was suspicious activity on their account and they were taking care of it. IN the mean time, $10 which doesnt change the world but it was deducted from my account.

I may be wrong but I believe I may smell a rat.

I believe it sounds like a scam. I would advise your bank and have your account number changed asap.

Its a legit thing, they confirmed it was their check but did not offer a response and said sorry for the inconvenience.

Humm, could a deposited check open a back door into a checking account?

Considering the financial difficulties FMCA has been experiencing for the past 2 years, that sounds suspicious.

So, are you insinuating that FMCA is mailing checks, having them bounce so that they can get into your checking account and pick up a few bucks?

Nope! I suspected a hacker was pretending to be FMCA/data breech.



FMCA has now issued this statement published on FMCA discussion forums.

"
Yes, we are aware. When we issued checks, there was a batch that were did not enter properly into US Bank.
The reissued checks were sent out Thursday, so members should start receiving them early this week. There is a letter explaining what happened, and that they can send proof of bank fees to FMCA for reimbursement."

After thinking about this thread, I was wondering why those who received such a check and had questions about why the OP and other check recipients didn't post to the FMCA discussion forums; I guess that's what threw my thinking askew.


I'm a member of FMCA, if I have a question about the organization I'll post there.



Was the reason behind the checks something to do with internet connection?
