So if it is counterfeit and me being the person cashing it and not knowing whether or not it was counterfeit just wanting payment for the products the person has ordered through my business I will be held accountable? What if I don't spend the money & hold onto just until I know that it is real and has cleared would that help my situation if it comes back as counterfeit if I still have the money that I received for that check I am so easily taken advantage of it seems in this world just trying to make a living and I've been scammed from people before and I try to trust people but I know there are people out there that do this but yet I want for this to be real I am struggling. With this cuz I have a family not a lot of money and yet feel like I've been taken advantage of yet again. I don't know what to do.

Her name is XXXXXXXXX XXXXX X'XX kept all the emails and txts she has sent to me an she even wanted the remainder of the money sent to her supposed daughter in texas for her wedding stuff lol so I have all the information and I guess if it is fake I will turn it over to the FBI I hate that it is more than likely a scam but then again I want them off the street from scamming other innocent gullible n people like me in the future it's not right at all and the honest people always seem to get the raw end of the deal :'(
