Protect Yourself From Scams Like This. Just how vulnerable are You???

This article came from a trusted source over the internet requesting it to be published.  I do not know any specifics about this article and the grammar and spelling is as we received it.

 I personally received a letter scam similar to this with a check for $1500 included.  When I tracked down the bank they told me it was from a fraudulent account.
