i received a letter, along with a check in the mail on August 31st. The check was for 2894.65.

I was told to call a number, and the check would be activated, I was to cash the check and then go and get a money gram for 2740 plus 154.75, which was the entire check, and send it to Peggy Cox at 2016 w. broadway suite 111, in Quebec Canada.

After I got a confirmation number, I was to call back with the code K8J, and after fees, I would be sent a check for 80,199 dollars, either electronically or someone would deliver it to me at my residence.

No one in this town will cash a check like that without an account, so I deposited the check into my account, I waited until Sept 5th to add it to my balance, after the bank had cleared it.

I decided to use the check like it was instead of cashing it, because something just wasn't smelling right. Needless to say I purchased some items for my new home, I had just bought.

On Sept. 8th, I called the 800 number for my bank and got a balance of -1600 dollars, the deposited check had been returned.

Now I am in the hole, with no money my paycheck goes to the bank to pay them for their fees, I am my only source of income and will not receive any money for about 6 weeks, I am raising my grandson, and to say this is a hardship is putting it mildly, I have no good credit and cannot borrow money to make up the difference, and I should not have to anyway.

I was told by them that they were trying to get into the United States, and because I played internet games, that my name was drawn to receive this money, I have put info on the net to purchase items before, and I guess they stole my identity.

I learned one lesson from all of this nothing on the internet is free, and you cannot trust anyone or anything on the net.
