Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I have recieved a letter with a check in the mail from this company stating that I have won money from some "European & North America Consumer Reward". The check is for $2,500. It looks very legit but every time I try to call the number given on the letter, it tells me that the number or code is invalid. I called chase bank and asked them if they new anything about it and all they said was they are unsure, that they sponser thousands of organizations everyday. Im unsure of what to do with this check. I dont want to just cash it bc I dont want to get in trouble if its not real.

 Im unsure of what to do with this check.  "

   That's an easy one.   Shred it and move on with your life.

   The check is phony.  This is a very common scam.

   If you had contacted them at that phone number, they would have instructed you to deposit the check, then send money through an untraceable means (i.e. Western Union, MoneyGram, Green Dot) to pay for "taxes" on your winnings.   They would have ended up with your cash and you would have found out (about 10 days later) that the check was phony.  Your bank would then insist that you pay them back.    The scammers get untraceable cash, you get a large debt to repay.  Sound simple?
