#1 Consumer Suggestion

How to determine a Scam

AUTHOR: Mary Theresa - (U.S.A.)

I received the same letter although the addresses were different. I called the phone number on the letter as requested. The phone rang without an answer many times. I didn't give up on the calls. I finally got through to someone called Sarah. I asked her several questions and then we were disconnected. I learned that they want the job done in a few hours. What happens is they wait until you cash the check and send the money to them and then stop payment on the check. They get the money you've just wired and the check is now no longer any good. You are held responsible to keep good on the wired cash. I didn't fall for the tactics but I was curious on how this 'rip off' worked.

I received the same letter, are they a scam?

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

I received the exact same letter and check today. I'm not finding anything but this page when I google the company. Have there been any other complains, has this person tried this out to see if it works or is a scam?
