The only way to prevent getting bad check or cash, is to exchange money using bank check, account transfer, etc. in person, at the buyers bank. The bank the check/account was drawn from. That's the only way I will do business anymore.

This almost reads like a comedy. Holy cow.

So if you ask the person that is giving you the check what the approximate balance is on the account. Then see if the person on the phone gives you something in the same range?

If the amounts aren't even close, then you know something is up.

They would not know the balance.

Even if they did know the balance they should not give it to someone that does not own the account, all they typically do is verify weather or not the check can be covered.
