A check or money order is only a promise to pay or provide funds.When you deposit either in your account, in essence you are making a guarantee that the funds will be provided.For this second group of people the ongoing ‘con’ is how they relate to getting by in life.

Maybe that dream girl you've been talking to for the past couple of weeks seems a little too good to be true?
According to Internet security specialist and blogger Brian Krebs, Russian cybercriminals have compiled a dating scam package that’s packed with English language templates that tricksters can pick and choose from as they lead their victims along.
It even includes photographs of attractive women that users can personalize with romantic messages.
