is this real?


2006-10-02 13:45:29 -
i recived a letter as well as a check for 2984.44 and was told to deposit it into my bank account to cover the taxes on a 57,015.56 check that i would recieve later. the check for as far as i could tell was a real check so i called the bank that the check was drawn on and they told me that it was a scam and to go to my bank and have them fax a copy of it to valley national bank. im not sure what to do but i would like to stop this person from defrauding anyone else if anyone can give me information please contact me.


2006-10-02 12:52:38 -
I deposited the check for 2,998.40 into my mother-in-law's account. A week later, the bank called and said it was no good. I took 2,9998.40 from my savings and paid for the check. Now the bank has bounced all the checks that were written on the account and they say we have to pay the individual checks, (Wal-Mart, etc). So my question is who got the 3,000.00 that I paid for the check that was no good. The bank says that it was to cover the counterfeit check, not the checks we wrote. HELP! I can't pay 6,000 for 3,000.


2006-10-02 11:38:45 -
I got a check in the mail today from Atlantic west gaming. Is it any good.

I recieved a lfake letter from Random British lotto, along with a realistic check. The letter stated that I won a lottery in the amount of $115,500.00. The check was from the company MNSS in the amount of $2998.80. When I called the number in the letter(Brenda Donald) told me to deposit the check into my account, wait a couple of days for it to clear, then wire them $2887.20 for "clearance fees". Once I did this, she wanted me to call her and she would then send out my remaining check for the rest of the winnings. She also stated that The Random British Lotto was just starting out. I asked her if she could send me my winning ticket with the winning numbers and give me the address for the lotto. She abruptly asked why, then refused and hung up.....yet she still called me a couple days later to see if I cashed the check. I then told her Taht I would be reporting her to the police and better business. She again hung up on me. How professional??????????

First it was Europe kingdom, then International Lottery powerball. The first one sent me a check, which I was ordered to deposit into my account, then after it cleared, send it to some lady in another country, and she would in turn send "me" a check for 88 thousand dollars. The other one offered about the same thing. Do I "believe" these people? Right! And I'm blonde haired, blue eyed, and pathetically skinney!(Actually, I'm brown haired, green eyed & 150 pounds) hahaha! These people make me sick, as there are people out there with desperate money problems, who could really use a "big check." And some of them really fall for this crap! I want to have a job where I set these ignorant, cold blooded idiots up and have them arrested! I can get "anyone" to talk, so I know I could do this. "Is" there such a job?

Marley speaks of “One love and one heart.” This was, and is, an issue
that many people believe in. Peace is man’s ultimate goal, a The
greatest thing of Bob Marley’s music and ability to persuade was the fact he
never used it to stir false beliefs. His words were
have carried as blatant a message with it, but it was another way for
Marley to reach his audience. He gained respect for innovating the use
of his guitar and the production of his music, and became a messenger
even when he was not singing in his songs. His music reached people
emotionally throughout nations. Music is an effective tool for adjusting to
the emotional life of many people. People use music quite frequently to
express or modify their emotions (Hakanen). Some find themselves in the
words of others, and some will put themselves into their own words. Bob
believed himself to be a philosopher, but humble as well. "People want
to listen to a message, word from Jah. This could be passed through me
or anybody. I am not a leader, a messenger. The words of the songs, not
the person are what attract people." (African News Service) Bob Marley
used techniques of assimilation to grab his audience. When he spoke of
topics that were hot in the minds of his people, they were more likely
to accept the message and believe they shared the same beliefs.
virtual time must exist for music to function rhetorically (Sellnow).
However it can sometimes work out otherwise. In fact, it
giving voice to it the world over."
