Questioning legality of job

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Florida

I was hired as a company representative for Peru financial, based in Canada. I make receive client payments, deposit them, and then wire transfer the payment to my company. I'm very concerned if this is legal. I have spoken with the Police here, my bank and all fill everything is on the "up & up". My concern you see scams all over the internet today. If I'm scammed and I deposit fake checks, what happens to me?

Answer

It is not a legitimate business normally; at some point a check will be fraudulent and you will be liable. We see it every day. You may contact the FBI as well.
