    This is nothing more then a scam to steal your money. This is a 419 scam. DO NOT REPLY, DO NOT SEND ANYTHING. Should DELETE this e-mail.
    Happen to friend. She sent a personal check and by a week later, they cleaned out her entire checking account! Once they have your checks, they have all the info printed on the check. Just look at a check. Name, address, Telephone number, routing number, account number, Bank name and sometimes bank address.

    So this is nothing but a scam. No one is going to give anyone FREE MONEY at all. To get money you have to WORK FOR IT!

    Also make sure you do not get one from a bank asking for you to click on the link. If it does not have your First and last name, and it just says Customer then that may also be a phishing e-mail and then they clean out your account. (using a cloned credit card).
