Wanted: John Mark Checks

Many people have been asking what should they do with their fake John Mark checks. First do not cash/deposit any of the checks into your bank account (they will bounce). Next, you will need to decide if you would like to report the matter. We have added a link on the homepage under the section "Report a Scam."

The amount of pressure that has been directed at John Mark is starting to show. Tens of thousands of people have become hip to his game, and as a result he is starting to slip up. At this point we are requesting that if you have any checks from John Mark, please scan them and email them to us at:

Thanks again to everyone who has shared their experiences with this creep. Last week alone, the calculated amount of money saved from potential victims totaled well over $8,900. Of course that figure is only what was reported to us, who knows how much the actual amount was. Until "John Mark" is brought to justice, we have vowed to apply relentless pressure. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

i have two checks from this man, have reported him the authorities, but do not have a scanner to send you copies of them. They total $1,960.00. What should I do with them?

I received one today totalling $930.25 and it was sent from Freeport, Texas. I didn't know this was a scam thing till after I sent the check back to him. I did make a copy of the money order. I was just selling a science textbook for $65 and when the check came by FedEx... I just didnt have a good feeling about it.
