Local businesses are reportedly being approached by scammers with a popular check cashing/credit card scheme. The scammers want you to cash a check or accept credit card payment from them for future services and then wire a portion of the money to one of their associates. The check/credit card deposit never clears the bank and the business is held responsible for the amount they withdrew from the check or credit card deposit and wired to the associate. This is a popular online scam that has been going on for years. Please do not participate if approached by them. You can see an example in the screenshot below.
