Now I knew this was to good to be true so of course I went to my favorite website in cases like this...you got it usaconsumercomplaints.com and there it was two other cases out there. Well I agree with the other writer I may be broke but I am not stupid. I tore the check up. I don't know how they got my address. However, I would love to know what the outcome will be of the lady who actually deposited this check in her account.
