The above letter came stamped from Canada, with no return address. The letter it is printed on does not contain an official watermark, but it does have a digital image stolen from ING Direct Canada. The envelope also contained a check in the amount of $4,950.00. At first glance it was very obvious to me that this letter/check was a scam, and after researching it online I have confirmed that it is definitely a scam.

Please report it if you receive one of these letters and then shred/dispose of them safely.
