Additional Information

It has come to the attention of the BBB that consumers may be receiving communications that appear to be from this business, advertising opportunities as a mystery shopper, or other opportunities involving mailed checks. However when the consumer expresses interest, the offer is revealed to be a variation of the ubiquitous "check scam".

Consumers should be aware that JD Electric located at this address is not involved with these offers and are themselves possible victims of ID Theft.

In the check scam, a consumer is provided with a check and instructed to deposit this check in their personal bank account. They are then instructed to forward a portion of those funds onward, usually via wire transfer, and "keep the rest for themselves". However, while the check may appear to clear the bank, it is not in fact a valid check. When this discovery is made, the consumer is responsible for those funds, with the end result being the consumer has sent their own money. This type of scam is also known as an overpayment scam, and has many variations. For more information, we suggest visiting
