Receipt of Unexpected or Unauthorized "College Board" Checks

We have recently learned of a series of checks that have been fraudulently issued by unauthorized third parties designed to appear to be issued by the College Board. The recipients have presented these fraudulent checks to our bank for payment, and payment has been refused. Please be cautious of any non–College Board third party that might engage you in a business transaction and attempt to reimburse you for goods or services with a "College Board" check. Please do not present checks appearing to be issued from a College Board account to your bank for payment unless you are absolutely certain that you have engaged in legitimate business with the College Board and are owed the amount indicated on the check. Our bank will not clear fraudulent checks.

If you have any questions about such an attempt, please call 866-680-9990, and we’ll connect you with someone who can help answer your questions.
