Earlier this month, a young woman received a sizable financial offer over a social media app. Believing this offer to be valid, the victim loaded her personal and bank account information into the app. Then, on March 4, an unknown male deposited a fraudulent check into the victim's bank account and immediately withdrew cash. Unfortunately, once the check was found to be fraudulent, the victim lost the money that was withdrawn.
