I received my fake check June 6, 2011, the date of the check is 05/31/2011, for $986.64. I am supposed to cash the check and send $402.00 back on a greendot money card. After reading the attachment which was full of spelling mistakes, I knew this was a scam. I did a search and found this website, I always google search when something does not smell right. These fools need to be caught, they are taking advantage of people by taking their money and putting them in a financial bind. This is of course from Kathleen Hennessey – an independent grant broker. Also, I noticed this blurb, “If you cash or deposit this check and fail to grant the 4.02% commission fee withing 5 days, you will not receive your other larger payment of $9, 014 and your case will be turned over to a collections agency. In this event, you will be required to repay the full 100% of the attached check at once and failure to do so will reflect negatively on your credit report for a period of seven years. So please remember to pay your commission!” – real scary, think not.
