College Alerted of Check Scam
Hudson Valley Community College has recently observed a number of fake or counterfeit checks supposedly issued from a college account. The college has reported these scams to the United States Secret Service.
Some of these scams involve sales over the Internet where the seller receives payment in the form of a Hudson Valley Community College check which exceeds the agreed upon price. The seller is requested to deposit the check, which may arrive by priority mail or FedEx, and send the excess amount of funds to another address.
If you receive a Hudson Valley Community College check under these or other suspicious circumstances, do not attempt to cash it without first verifying its authenticity. Contact the Hudson Valley Community College Comptroller’s office at (518) 629-4507 or (518) 629-4508.
