Thank you RIP-OFF REPORT for allowing me to research this, read previous postings about this scam, prevent myself from being swindled, and report the crooks myself. I called the number on the letter, armed with the knowledge that it was a scam & they hung up on me when I told them I had a bank of america branch manager say they would put a 10-day hold on the check to ensure the funds would clear first. BEWARE! It IS a REAL check, complete with the black light watermarks and fingerprint security & passed the bank's counterfit tests, so I guess to a teller not knowing any better COULD have cashed it. That's the scary part.
