I googled the company name and get the RIPOFF REPORT info right off the bat. I noticed that another 2 other people in Alaska received the same letter with the exception of a different Company Name (Global International...) and the "payment coordinator" names were different. I contacted contacted a couple of goverment agencies regarding this. Don't know if these contacts will do anythng for this type of scam, but it was worth it to me!!! This kind of scams have been around for awhile, but with the way things are going now - receiving a letter and a check like that could be very enticing and another might not look into it!!! Who knows what kind of damage these people could do if you actually called them!!!

Anyways - please be alert for these kind on scams as I know a couple of people who have fallen for them and ended up paying ALOT more than what the check was for not to mention all the other problems that goes with this type of scam.
