*This transcription is accurate down to the misspelled "UNTILL" and excessive use of capitalized words.*


Clearly a scam, the letter was a tip off -- be advised that the check looks very real, but if taken to a bank, it will not be read by the machines.

I'm planning on leaving the entire contents of the envelope at my bank for investigation, however, since the scam was perpetrated from outside the country, no one is likely to be prosecuted.
