    I got a check Monday and they are busting me to cash, not going to do it, if there are any law enforcement agencies that want the check let me know.

    I responded to the scam and a week later received a check for $2450 that I should deposit it into my bank ATM with the instructions to withdraw $1950 to send to a specialist. When I told the person that I have to wait for the check to clear by my bank they were not happy and started cursing me out.

    In fact two days later the bank returned the check as altered or fictitious. The check was drawn on SPC Credit Union out of Virginia.

    I wish there is a way to track the scam bags and put them away forever.
