Talk about too good to be true....

Recommended Posts

Yesterday there was a thread on buying some hotel stuff on ebay and it just being too good to be true. This morning I woke up and had a ups envelope on my front step. It was overnighted from NY, someone I didn't know. All I could think was: What is this!


I opened it and there was a check from the Alexander Street Press (in Virginia) for $3000.00. WHAT IS THIS! At first I was excited, then I started thinking this is just too good to be true. It's a real check, but there is no letter. I tried googling something w/ the Alexander street Press, but nothing came up for a fraud or scam. Then I checked the address, it didn't exist. I knew it was a scam. I called the Alexander Street Press and they said there was a fraud case out with all of this. I have to fax them a copy, etc, and they're doing a federal investigation.


DAMN, who couldn't use $3000.00? And why me?

My brother (He's only 19) got a check like that. He was thrilled and was about to go to the bank and deposit it when my mom saw it. She took him straight to the issuing bank and asked them about the check. They said that if you cash it then the people who wrote the check will see all your account information and I guess that's what they want.

I knew right away that something was fishy about it. I had no idea who it was that sent it, and the check is from a publishing company in Virginia but the return address was in NY and I live in Montana... then we google mapped the return address and it doesn't exist, they even put a city that doesn't exist in NY and there was no letter w/ the check.... It only takes a minute to realize this is weird.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
