always check the call number.

AUTHOR: coretta - (United States of America)

I have been to the site itself www.shadowshoppers.com and I have seen a posting on their website saying that people were getting counterfiet checks from nigera or something like that under their name.

also, if a number dosnt look like it came from the united states,(ten digit number, like 804-576-9999 might be a 1 in the front) then beware of the letter and check. I got one of these before, so i went online and searched for their company first. I got their number and I asked about the check. they said that they had never sent any check, so I thew it away. also, you have to sign up for their service, so having not done so should send up some red flags.
