Did they try to call the bank the check was issued through and verify the account had funds? Was this a bank or check cashing place? It's not that hard to verify the check so wondering if they just looked @ it and thought it was some online scam?

It was at a check cashing place. She said they ran it thru the machine 2x and said its fake. It was after hours so couldnt call bank.

I received a check for payment and had no problem cashing mine as it has their legitimate account # as well as the bank listed where they have the account with. Can your sister go to a bank then to try and cash it?

I never used a check cashing place....I think they charge hefty fees. I did studies with them and hubby too...not a problem. They are based in NYC if I rember correctly and totally legit. Try a bank if you have one.

Thanks iguana66 for your further input. I am originally from back East and asked my husband and he recalls the same bank listed on their check as having a branch in his home town. I had no doubt they were legit especially since so many people have posted about being in their studies before and never had a problem with getting paid. If there was an issue with their check, I am sure we would have heard about this much sooner.

I don't get charged a lot..$2 for checks that are up to $1,000.

There are so many online banks that are free. They even reimburse you for ATM fees for other banks like if you use a BOA atm, the online bank will reimburse you. Some of them have mobile apps which let you take a pic of the check and deposit it that way. Kiplinger's just had an article this month....Ally Bank, ING etc. Why even give up $2.00 per check to someone for no reason. Keep your money honey!
