Feel free to contact me at anytime of this transaction So a day or two later I get this other letter saying they will be shipping me a cheque. Today, I got the cheque via UPS Express in a big envelope. Now, I had no plan on going to cash this cheque. I was actually amazed at what they did. But I know its some sort of scam. Now I just need some advice. Should I go to the police tomorrow to explain this scam to them. Or just rip and burn the papers. I really want these scammers to be busted. But I dont want to somehow get myself into some crap that I should not be in. I will most likely go to the police and report it, if thats the smart thing to do. So guys, crazy story! eh? [/IMG] [/IMG] I shouldnt be worried about the scammers names, but I blocked it in case they were legitimate people whos identity were stolen and cheques.
