Ok. Is there any way to know if I'm going to receive more checks from them or to track a check? I think I was supposed to receive 2 more checks from them but I haven't received them and I think they was sent a while ago

Contact the agency that owes you the check. If they were sent, but not cashed they can reissue them. If somebody else negotiated the checks, they can investigate. The US government has the ability to order the bank to refund their money.

Because of information in private messages, I know some additional details.

Because of the huge amount of money the inmate is saying he is due from the government, it has to be a fraudulent scam. Sadly he is trying to put her into the middle of his illegal scheme by helping him to actually receive the money. He is taking advantage of her kindness.

My advice to her is to run away from this guy, and to document everything she does to make that happen.
