I hope you didn't cash the check!

AUTHOR: Cherrieredd - (U.S.A.)

I've heard of these scams, and to believe them is ludicrous! I don't know the legistics, but from what I get they can get information regarding your bank account from the stamps on the cancelled check and then they will drain your account somehow. Frankly, I don't know if that is true or not, but there has to be catch on their part. First off, utility bills are not public information so if one of your utility companies has shared your billing information there is a legal issue there against your utility company. Second, anything that is worldwide is most likely some form of transnational crime; don't trust it and don't contact them.
