There have been times when the Transamerica name and logo have been misused by unauthorized individuals for fraudulent purposes. These misuses include sending letters with counterfeit checks from Transamerica for false sweepstakes or lottery notifications, mystery shopper or employment opportunities through online advertisements or listing services, and even creating websites that represent an affiliation with Transamerica.
Please be aware that counterfeit checks will not be honored and your bank will require you to cover the loss if deposited.
Transamerica takes these matters seriously and works with the appropriate regulatory and/or law enforcement authorities to investigate such scams.
