I got the same letter as everyone else did, It said, the following. You have been approved for the lump sum payment of 39, 000 credited to an account with the above Claim Number. They sent me a Cashiers check for the amount of 3, 900 to pay the taxes. I called the number given in the letter, Was told to deposit the check into my account, then call them back when it had cleared the bank. I received the letter on Sat. Nov. 1, 2008.
Monday Nov.3, 2008, I called the Bank given on the cashiers check and was told not to try and cash the check, because it was no good. The cashier's check was drawn on People's Bank in Connecticut routing number is 221172186 check number is 11930501. These people that is doing this needs to be put away for a long time. I called the number back just to see what they would say, Edward Jones really could use some cuse words. I hope they get caught, People this is a total ripoff, do not try an cash the check!!
