So I caled this Eric Brown about the check. All he asks for is the check number and tells me is to deposit the check and to call him back when the check clears. Guess what i did, I went and deposited the check. It took three days for he bank to clear it and I called hime back. He then transfers me to some women, Her name was Monica Edwards. She tells me to send the $2,845.00 to a bond officer through Money Gram and to call Eric back with the confirmation.

After I hang up I'm thinking to my self this is to good to be true and why is it happening to me.
I went to the bank to withdrawal the money, when the bank tellers tells me that the check was no good (it was a fraud). Thank God that I waited for the check to clear from the bank other wise I would have to be paying up money i don't have.
After the insident at the bank I called Eric again and told him that the chack was no good. He then flips out saying that the check was good and he don't know why the bank was saying that it wasn't. Sorry Eric I'll believe my bank over any total strange any day.
