Who is Chatham?

Chatham Financial is a 525-person firm headquartered outside of Philadelphia with offices in Denver, London, Krakow, Singapore, and Melbourne. We provide global financial risk management advisory services and technology solutions to clients in the areas of interest rate, foreign currency, commodity hedging, hedge accounting, regulatory compliance, and debt and derivatives valuations. As a purpose driven organization, we are committed to making a positive influence on our clients, our associates, our communities, and the capital markets at large.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
