    Contest Scams

    :spin2: Hi - I'm cj and I'm new here. Got involved trying to track a scam about *winning contests* where I was sent a sizeable check and asked to deposit it and send a goodly portion back through WU - I didn't fall for it, but would like to send the *offer* to someone who is going to take legal action. Would state police be better, local news station or state attorney general? Or should I just *blanket the world*?

    Hi CJ. Welcome to the forum. I'm glad that you didn't fall for that one.
    As far as reporting the issue. I would try to do all of the above. Keep any info that you have on the people that sent you the check. It is probably from Nigeria, or the UK
