  • BROAD FINANCIAL SERVICES 9750 Royal Lane Suite 1000 Dallas, Texas U.S.A.

BROAD FINANCIAL SERVICES I received an official letter informing me that I was needed as a Secret Shopper for establishments like Burger King. A check was attached for $2500 (it looked like a real check). However, if you scan the check you will see that the check is on paper that says, "void." Dallas Texas

I realized that something did not set right when I received this letter from Broad Financial Services. I was wondering why "me?" I believe they got my name from information that I had started to sign up for on the Internet to do surveys. Nevertheless, I called the number on the letter and someone started speaking to me in a foreign language that I did not understand (I think it was Japanese). Thereafter, a recording came on the line and say that my call could not go through.

The check enclosed in the letter says it was from SunTrust Bank. I know that SunTrust is a legitimate bank so I searched online for the address on the check (200 Commerce Way, Pulaski, TN 38478) and while SunTrust have banks in Tennessee, they do not have a location at 200 Commerce Way.

I wish there was some way to catch these people who no doubt have robbed countless people of their bank account funds. Is there more that I can do to stop these fraudulent mailings?

But just as an FYI, many checks that are valid will say "VOID" on them when scanned/copied; this is a relic from the pre-computer age when check scammers would use copiers to make a fake check. Now you can print up legal checks at home, so using a copier to make a fake check is old-school.

I scan my checks to deposit them electronically at home thanks to Check 21 now, so everynow and then I'll get one that says void on it. But it's still valid..
