Along those lines, I was out of town one weekend, and my cousin messages me over Facebook saying he received a refund check from PCMall.com or some computer component website in the amount of like 1500 bucks. I called him shortly thereafter and asked him 2 things, "did you cash it?" And "Have you ever bought anything from PCMall.com" He answered No to both questions... He did tell me, however, that he went to the police, and asked them if it seemed legitimate. The cop took a quick look at it, and deemed it "Legit to cash"

I laughed at that statement and then offered my rebuttal... "CJ, You haven't shopped there, and they're sending you a "refund check" for something you've never purchased... doesnt this throw a red flag somewhere?"

Common sense says if you haven't shopped there, or signed up for any contests, then obviously it's a scam. He tore up the check.

A meeting is an event at which the minutes are kept and the hours are lost.

Working...
