I received a letter in the mail with my name and address, but no return address. Being a mail carrier that raised a red flag(no pun intended). Enclosed was a check for $2800 and a letter with instructions for me to cash the check and send the money somewhere( don't know where because I never called the number on the letter) to pay for the insurance and processing. If I were to do this I would receive a lump sum payment of $275,000. For a couple a days I had blinders on because I could desperately use the money right now. I even endorsed the check. It was a good thing I received the letter over the weekend, which gave me time to search the web for any other scams of this nature. Sure enough I found a website where someone had called the bank and found out that the check was counterfiet. There was one person who had cashed the check and ended up having to take out a loan to pay back the bank. The checks look authentic and have fooled many tellers. I believed the letter at first because I had entered several lottos and contests on-line, so it was possible. I now feel like a fool.
