ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Revenue Department wants to warn you about a couple of check scams that could land you in deep financial trouble.

Watch out for a letter that claims you've been granted $50,000. Attached is a check that appears to come from the Georgia Department of Revenue but the Department would never send a check through a third party.

Also look out for checks from a company identified as AIRSERV out of Atlanta. Be suspicious if the social security number displays the wrong number of digits, has a different font than the rest of the check or if there is no social security number on the check. The check number may also be in a different font.

If you receive a suspicious letter, report it to local law enforcers and the Revenue Department.
