I actually received a cashier's check in the mail about a month ago for $2500.00. They said that they would send the remaining $50,000. when I cashed the original check and sent them $2000.00 for the paperwork and attorney's fee's. I did take it to the bank and they ran some sort of check on it. It was a fake check, of course, but the bank was actually glad that I brought it in to them. They can not only check to see if a check is for real, but they also use the tracking information to try and catch the jerks who send them out.

But you know, if anyone was to win the lottery, I wouldn't be to upset if they wanted to share some with me. lol

I have heard of this scam as well, often the bank will cash the check but when it comes back a fake check, you are on the hook for the entire amount. I'm glad you didn't get taken in.
