Is this situation a fraud?

My cousin called me one day to ask if he can have a check under my name and sent to my home. He didn’t clearly state the reason for this strange situation, only stating that the money is needed for his business.

I didn’t think much about it, because…well, he is family. But as the days past, I began to think otherwise..

I mean, why would he have a check under my name? Is there something wrong with just placing the check under his own name? People tell me that what he is doing maybe illegal….I have no idea.

Please help me! I don’t know what to do.

I know I must sign the check…but is it safe to do it or is this another fraud?
thanks for the quite response!

but to clear things out, my cousin addressed the check under my name and address….

so, that would mean I would have to personally sign my name and (most likely) deposit the check under my account.

What would you suggest in this situation? Should I sign the check or not?
the check wasn’t made out by me or my cousin

the check was sent out by a company…whom I do not know…

rather than requesting the check to be under his name, he used my name and address instead….
