My MIL is an elderly widow that has fallen victim to scammers who have convinced her that she has won a Publisher’s Clearing House award and they will be at her house on Saturday to change her life. She put a check in the mail to them today (It’s Thanksgiving but she took the letter to the post office). I don’t know how much the check was for.
The scammers appear to know her address, phone number and will soon have her routing and checking account number. My BIL will make sure that she calls the bank in the morning to cancel the check.
What other steps do we need to take?
