I was just played people and I feel so embarrassed. I’m just happy to have a very good friend and husband that saw past that beautiful number written on that fake, no-good-for-nothing FRAUD check!
Here’s what happened…
I received a priority overnight “no signature required” enveloped from FedEx about an hour ago.This wasn’t a shocker. I receive mail all the time from them. But. I should have been able to see the following red flags of doom myself.
1st and foremost: I’m not that lucky
2nd) The envelope was sent from someone I have never in my life met or even heard of.
3rd) The check was from American Federal Credit Union in MI, not a bank in NY (where the person was supposedly from).
4th and final…The Cashier’s Check was written to me in the amount of $2,850.00 big ones. As soon as I saw that number I should have known better.
The sad thing is…when you need money that bad you see past the clues. You just see the numbers and all the bills that are late just pop in your head as Paid. Oh well…back to reality.
Oh, but before I forget. My good friend sent me over this link to a place where you can find out if the check you recieved is fradulent or not. Just visit the official page for finding Check Routing Numbers
So tell me; have you ever been played?
