Travelers Cheque and Gift Cheque Fraud
Travelers Cheques and Gift Cheques are safer than cash because they are reimbursable if lost or stolen. Although the vast majority of American Express Travelers Cheques and Gift Cheques you will encounter are authentic, there are attempts to use counterfeit Cheques in scams, particularly those perpetrated online. If you have any question regarding the validity of Cheques you have received, call American Express at 1-800-525-7641.
