Check fraud prank on friend

    Could you print up some counterfeit checks with an insert that is for some bogus lawsuit from a company that your friend uses or has used. Then mail them to your friend.

    When your friend receives these checks he will likely cash/deposit them, ultimately commuting fraud. After a bunch of these are cashed/deposited, he'll be arrested and everyone will laugh.

    Would this work?

    And then he takes it to trial and you end up being a juror and convincing the others that he's guilty for sure and more laughs are had.

    Then you go visit him in prison on the day before he's set to get released and tell him that it was just a joke, and even MORE laughs are had.

    I was thinking maybe after he gets released, doing this other prank on him since he'll be on probation...

    As someone who legit used to successfully do cheque fraud (over a decade ago, so LEO can chill and shit)...

    Yes, this would be a rather easy way to set somebody up.

    In fact, you don't even need fancy magnetic ink printers anymore because of mobile deposit and all...

    Unless your boy is one of those old-fashioned types who walks into a brick-and-mortar establishment all like...

    "I have to run errands. Among those errands is banking. I have to do about 20-30 minutes of banking related activity today."

    But, um, it's pretty extreme for a prank.

    I'm not quite sure that "IT'S JUST A PRANK BRO!" will suffice here.

    Unless mobile deposit actually validates the cheque instantly before releasing any funds...?

    I've been outta the game for so long I just have no idea how anything works anymore.

    The crime wouldn't be in cashing the bogus check, it would be in manufacturing the bogus check.

    True.

    But I just meant it would be an effective way to, essentially, "put somebody into an unfortunate scenario."

    The cheque casher has plausible deniability, especially if it came in the mail and they can produce the envelope as evidence.

    I mean, this whole thing is kinda off-the-wall, and not exactly practical, unless your sole intent is to just place somebody square into some legal shenanigans for sheer lulz.

    It would probably be a real pain the ass for the person depositing the bogus check, as the person would then be spending his own money. Once the fraudulent check is discovered, the bank would simply debit the account back the entire amount, at least until an investigation is completed, which could take months or years.

    I’m pretty sure that’s exactly the intent

    Would it possibly cause his bank account to get locked up or closed?

    I imagine it would lower his RBI score.
