I did not cash check and sent an e-mail to: [email protected] stating that I found out the check was not good.
I am not out any money but would like this not happening to other people.
I received several emails from this individual claiming to represent a mystery shopper company that is looking for people. They sent me a check of $2800 wanting me to sent the money to Turkey to an individual and I take my fee of 250 out. I called the bank (Fulton Bank) where the check was from and they informed me it was in invalid check.Show more
