Consumers should be aware of scams involving counterfeit or invalid cheques. The victim receives a letter informing him/her that they have won a lottery or sweepstakes and are instructed to deposit the accompanying cheque (in this case, it could be through Bank of Hawaii, Maui Clothing Company 1000 Limahana Place, Unit N Lahaina, Mahui, Hawaii 96761 or Global Strategy Group, LLC 895 Broadway, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10003 ) and pay the organization a fee, with the expectation that the large amount of money they have won will be transferred into their account. The problem occurs when the bank allows the victim to draw on that amount, sometimes after checking that there are sufficient funds in the account the cheque is drawn on, but when the cheque is returned NSF of found to be counterfeit, then the victim owes his or her bank the amount they had withdrawn.
Not only are the addresses non-existent or invalid for these operations, but the phone numbers and postal codes do not match that area.
