Make certain the check has clear by waiting two weeks or 14 business days to make sure there are no problems. It is possible although I would agree with the BBB. If they request that you send the money do not wire the money out of your account but rather create a separate (new account at a different bank) and wire the funds that way so you do not expose your account to any unauthorized debits and if they do something to affect the new account there will not be anyother funds they can take out.
