    I received the exact same letter,the only thing different is the name at the same address in the P.I..that name was Stann Benson.I have a phone no. on an e mail to call or text confirmation to. I'm not listing the number at this point in time because i'm calling the F.B.I. w/that info.

    the FBI cannot do much about the scam on it's own as it originates outside the US (in Africa most likely). If you can get bank accounts then the you could hurt the scammer by getting the bank account killed. You could take the check with the address/postage label to the post office and they will send it to the postal inspectors. Include the whole label.

    1st i took the check to a local bank and opened an account with the check,then i went back to the bank and told them i thought the check is part of a scam and that the check is counterfeit , then called the fraud hotline for moneygram,after the bank voided the check, and gave all the info to their international fraud team and assured them that i would cooperate with any and all law enforcement agencies. So thank you for that info!....I'll be going to the Post office in the morning.
