Good morning,

I was contacted by Mark Anderson on May 21, 2016 under e-mail ( to perform a 32 page translation from English to Spanish.  After quoting price of $600+, Mark agreed to send payment via check.  I asked for Chase quick pay, or USPS Money order, or Cashier's check.  I received the check two weeks late, too late to complete the work by December 16, 2016.  The check arrived in the amount of $2,269.78, with a letter attached with additional instructions to TEXT to number 252-621-2296 for more details and instructions.

The check came issued from Alaska USA Federal Credit Union.  I called Alaska FCU to verify check, they could not verify the member number.  The check is clearly a fake, not only because Alaska fcu could not confirm the validity of it, but I know a half dozen way to tell a fake from real check (which I'm not disclosing) besides the fact this is NOT a cashier's check, and it was printed from a home printer using quickbooks.

If you are contacted by this person please avoid yourself the trouble.

If you are contacted by other person(s) under similar circunstances where you are asked to send additional money to a third party, please avoid them or report them to the FBI financial crimes unit.  Please note that it could take up to two weeks for a check to clear; in the event the check is a FAKE, you will find yourself out of money for the difference, as bank are not held liable for you lack of due diligence.

Keep the original check as speciment shall you are asked by the FBI to mail it to them for fingerprint analysis.  Keep records of the e-mails, the package, and the USPS tracking number.  This package tracking number was 9405501699320101954380 and it was shipped from STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE UNIVERSITY 1936 NORTH ST. NACOGDOCHES TX 75962
