The envelope which it was sent in has no return address, if i was sending a check via Postal Mail I would most definitely put my address on it. Another scary thing is that I just got married so my last name changed but I just went to change all my stuff like my SS# and DL etc July 23rd and this envelope was sent to me on the 14th of July so how did they have my New last name and how in the hell did they get my address my house isn't under my married name? This is crazy that THESE people are getting away with this stuff. Something needs to be done.

These check looks so legit when you look at it but all its going to do is screw up over. I cant imagine how many people have actually deposited it in to their account and sent a Money Gram and they to come and find out that the check bounced. I cant believe people get away with this stuff. Everyone please be aware... f
