MOST DEFINITELY!!! There are all kinds of scams out there, especially now. When I took some courses at Michigan State two years ago, you wouldn't believe the number of emails I got through the schools email regarding stuff like this: you've inherited money so contact this number only or some dude in Abu Dhabi with a great money making idea but don't tell anyone because he could be killed for this! These people prey on the innocence of others. Most definitely talk to the bank or the cops before you do anything with this!! Some of the scams that I was emailed were from "barristers in England" so BEWARE!! [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by momo from Sunday, November 29, 2009 4:45:45 PM)
My sister just recieved a check for $5,000. It is from a man in Los Angeles, drawn a bank in LA. It came in an airmail envelope mailed from somewhere in England with no return address, in the memo section of the check it say "service". I think it's some kind of money laundering scam. I think when they see the check cleared they contact you and say you recieved the check by mistake and need to return the money. Do you think I'm right and she should give it to the police?
