I got the exact same letter in the mail, I knew instantly it was a scam but. The check looks really good, even with a water mark, I didn't try to cash it but was wondering if anyone did and what happen?

I got the check and called the Bank NORTHERN TRUST BANK, and they would not verify the availability of funds, and said I had to go to a branch. Fortunately there was one near me in LOS ANGLES, but they would not allow me in because that branch does not cash checks. They tried to send me to the branch in West LA. So I called their help desk and said I needed to wire some money to someone and wanted to verify the routing number I had. I read them the routing number off the check and they said that it was an invalid routing number for them.

So you would deposit the check and send RONY RICHARDSON $2600. Then the check would come back to you as invalid and your bank would take back the money and you would be out both the money you deposited and the money you had wired to RONY RICHARDSON. Who would now be long gone.

Since this was mailed to you REPORT IT TO THE POSTAL INSPECTORS. They will show up at their houe in a black SUV and make their day.

I got almost verbatum, the same letter. i laid it aside at the time, feeling "SCAM" instantly. needed to think about it. almost a month later, i picked it back up and decided to call the #. The obviously foreign guy. asked why i waited so long to call. "we only had 3 more days to file or lose the opportunity." (this was Saturday afternoon. The bank was closed). I would have to wire $350.00 to my assigned tax agent (who was on vacation) but could send it to another persons address(no phone #) immediately. He called back 2 hours later wanting to know if the package was ready for pickup. wanted Western Union info. I said bank was closed & I would have to deposit check before I could wire money. He's going to call back Monday. Decided I better see if I could find anything on internet about this. Thank God for Google.
