Have you recently received a check from Al Snyder that is partial payment for a grant of some kind, and you just have to send him a portion before you get the rest? Don’t do it! You’ll be left holding the bag with thousands of fake dollars in it that you have to pay back.
Checks from “Al Snyder” or “Smith Enterprises” Are Fake!
We wrote about this fake check scam back in June, shortly after it appeared.
In the last week, the comments on that post have exploded (19 comments since 8/25). Why? Because he has been sending checks like mad—like the crook he is. They are usually for $4,765, give or take a couple hundred, drawn on Washington Mutual. They are poor fakes, easily spotted as such by anyone who looks closely.
People who are financially vulnerable fall for the scam and cash the check, only to be badly burned days or weeks later when their bank says, “Hey! It was fake! You owe us $5,000 plus penalties!”
If you get a check from Al Snyder, or Blossom Homes Corporation or Smith Enterprises or Upland Product Development, take it straight to the post office and file a complaint with the Postmaster General. Maybe also the local FBI office. Yes, your ship has come in, but it’s full of holes and rats. Don’t get on it. Sink it!
