Re: Work From Home Concern

I have had 3 different clients come to me asking about this type of scam. I do my best to explain what is going on, but all 3 of them still went with the "I'll just keep going, and if something happens I'll pretend I didn't know it was a scam"

It hasn't worked out well for any of them.

Newp. The bank and law enforcement really don't give a crap how stupid or naive someone is. OP and his wife are in serious, serious trouble. Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the FBI shows up at their door...

I really don't think law enforcement will be to concerned other than to file it away with all the others.

The bank on the other hand is going to demand their money back and don't care who they get it from the closest person will do.

And if they don't get it they will turn it over to the sorrest collection agency they can find and hound them forever.

Wrong. Going by the dollar amounts hinted at by the OP, this absolutely will be handed over to law enforcement once the bank realizes the checks were no good. That's the law and not up to the bank to ponder. The fools who tendered the checks will have their lives turned into a living hell for months, probably years. If LE doesn't resolve with restitution, then the bank can attempt to collect after the LE disposition.

Given the amounts involved, it is also likely the op will get to meet the IRS as well.

If they have ignored the posted advice since the ill gotten gains are so good, they will only suffer from full exposure to the legal/financial penalties available for such charges like that of money laundering and check fraud, correct?

The IRS don't mess around. They better pray the IRS doesn't get as much as a dust particle of this situation.

That, or he files for divorce.

And identity theft since the wife filled out a W-9, giving the scammers her full name and SSN; they undoubtedly also have her DOB and sufficient other personal information to run up one hell of a big credit debt.

Maybe Card Services of America can help them lower their debt. /sarcasm

I have a feeling they may already.
