i dont know, but if you take the money right away, you have to have that same balance in your account because if it bounces, they take it away from your account.

Just take that check and throw it right in file 13 (trash). Don't even bother with it, it's a full out scam.

Lots of these kinds of things come to people every day in the mail and also e-mail, I can't count how many of those I've gotten in my email, just ignore it.
