CHECK SCAMS! PLEASE HELP, ASAP?
2 months ago. i accepted a job as an "accounts payable specialist" my job was to write checks for payroll. but lately i found out that i was printing fraudulent checks. b4 i started my boss, (she) told me to buy a software called instant check, its a check writing software and tells me to buy check refills. and after printing the checks she sends me pre-paid UPS labels for delivery to random people in the states using the same account and the account's bank that she gave me. then on my 2nd month she told me that they're gonna let me handle their accounts receivables. my job was to collect funds from money gram take 10% as my cut. and send the rest to a person in nigeria. i did 14 transactions. and then today. i happened to be at youtube. and one of the featured videos was on check scams. i got scared after watching it. so i talked to HER and by the way we communicate through yahoo messenger. i told her what i saw and asked her for the truth. then she signed out and never logged in again. now im so scared i dont know what to do. im assuming i might get arrested and do jailtime without anyone to back me up. all i wanted was a job so i can pay for my student loans. i feel so stupid,. please don't judge me, i already feel terrible and about to have a heart attack. im only 22 and i might be facing this felony charges.... im scared please help!!!!!!!! can please someone just give me their opinion... thank you

I would go to the authorities and tell them what happened. They can search your computer to try and find her. I think. Anyway, you should be in the clear. Hopefully. This is what I would do anyway.

Get a lawyer before it it too late and you get prosecuted as an accessory. 419 scammers are very cunning and hopefully if you can tell your side of the story first, you will walk scott free. Many people have been duped by these scammers. They call it "Chop your dollar". And work out of internet cafes in Lago, Nigeria... More
