I've wondered about going with a local bank my only issue is I live in NYC for college and I'm originally from NC so when I go home for the summer I like to have a bank I can go to to deposit checks/cash.
RBG is legit and do have shops all over the Cali area. Simple fix to your problem would be just go to there website and register. Avoid the rhetoric and go to the source.
You may be missing the point here, jamie. RBG is a legit company, but the individual who contacted the OP and the other respondent in this thread used the RBG name but did not work for or represent RBG. .
Luke, how often, prior to these checks, were you depositing checks for that large of an amount? How easy would it be for the bank to have even a software program to make note of the oddity and find out more? or even put it on an automatic hold?
I feel sorry for these people getting scammed. But, I bet you it will NEVER happen to you again....hopefully.
I just sent the article to my son, who is a Junior at a university in Virginia. The easier it is for people to search for and find this scam, the better. Unfortunately, the scammers will move on to something else just as nefarious.
Scam, Scam, Scam
