We could all use the money, I know, but there are so many scams out there we need to be aware of. I just received a letter in my mailbox with a letter containing a check for $3,058.00, a survey form, and a letter advising me what I should do with all this. I was to go to my bank and deposit this check into my account, leaving $400 in my account and taking the rest to the closest WESTRN UNION TELEGRAM dealer in my area. I was to do this WESTRN UNION survey at the dealer's (things like attitudes, timeliness on transactions then wire a set amount and have enough to cover the wire cost also with what I had remaining from this check. The money was to be transferred to a bank account in VERO BEACH, FLORIDA to a SUNNY FRESH at a Vero beach address. the check also had the name of the NORTEHRN TRUST BANK of VERO BEACH, FLORIDA on it. I am not that wise at times, but not born yesterday either ! I called our state's Attorney General's office and they advised me to send everything to them immediately, which I did. i also contacted several TV stations in my area of NC…WITN and WRAL to report this scam to their SCAM alert reporters. Please, do not attempt to cash checks you don't understand, even if they sound good, they are usually TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE ! My daughter is a bank manager and said several of her customers had taken this same check into the bank there and tried to cash them. When she and her tellers wouldn't, the customers were upset about it. Please note this. Be careful. E-mails are dangerous also at times. I don't want any of my diabetic friends in this community getting hurt by such nonsense.
