Scammers targeted unsuspecting consumers with fake Pima FCU cashier's checks. such as the one pictured above, which was released by the Better Business Bureau.

Scammers have been mailing fake Pima Federal Credit Union cashier’s checks across the nation to unsuspecting consumers who were selling products or applying for secret shopper jobs on Craigslist.

No one knows just how many consumers have been duped, but at least $117,000 of the fake cashier’s checks were cashed. However, the $466 million Pima said it mitigated more than $100,000 of the bogus checks, according to Laura Ward, vice president of risk management for the Tucson, Ariz.-based cooperative.
