To Whom It May Concern,
Hello, My name is Karena Busch/Jimmerson and I was reading your recent complaints. My complaint is about GDE (Greendot Enterprises). In your complaint section someone else had complained about the same thing I am. I was to mail 400 circulars and brochures and get paid 2, 000.00 dollars. I received a pagckage today (April 29, 2009) by priority mail and the contents of that package was a check for 4, 985.49 that they told me came from one of their wealthy affiliates as a grant. They told me that the check was for supplies and postage and to send them 10% commission which is due to them which was for 997.00. The rest that was left over I could spend as I saw fit for bills, vacation etc... I was to deposit into my bank account which I do not have so I tried opening one up today and the bank Raccoon Valley Bank would not cash or deposit the check due to they told me that checks have threads in them and this check did not and looked like it was copied.
The fake check, Application for GED, and 2 other letters are all below for your viewing. I also received 420 stick on labels to put on envenelopes.I have put everything I got in the priority package back into the package. Please let me know what I should do with it. Do I mail everything back or contact the police???
Thank You For Your Time
I Sincerely Appreciate It. Karena Busch/Jimmerson

    GDE - BAD CHECK
    GREENDOT
    PO BOX 7361-102050
    San Francisco
    California
    United States

    I RECEIVED A CHECK, SUPPOSED TO BE A GRANT CHECK FROM LINDA SPAULDING FOR WORKING ON THE GREENDOT MAIL PROGRAM.
    info on check is;
    drawn on us bank dated 14 APR 09 FOR 2, 000.33 CHECK #517992137
    ACCORDING TO US BANK HERE THIS CHECK IS NO GOOD AND CAN NOT BE PROCESSED. REMITTER ON THIS CHECK IS NOTED AS DONOVAN SHULTZ.
    TO ISSUE A CHECK LIKE THIS IS OUT & OUT FRAUD AND SINCE MAIL SERVICE WAS USED IT BECOMES FEDERAL AND SOME ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN.
    NOTE : I WILL BE TURNING THIS OUER TO BBB & FBI.

    Hi My name is Betty and I just got a check for $4985.25 which didn't have my name on it. It had someone else name on it. I email support@greendotmail.com to let them know they sent me the wrong check, They email me back Sorry for the mix up,

    We will mail you the correct package on Tuesday, May 5th, 2009. Please tear up the check and trash the rest of the mail contents.

    Thank you,

    Joann Carpenter, Green Dot Enterprises
