Emails from site visitors about postal scam letters:

Here is one sent through the post from the "Global Financial Management / Washington Mutual Bank ".  March 11, 2007:

Hi, Thanks for having this site up. Yesterday I received a US Postal Letter with a $2850 "check" in it saying I had won much more money from Canada. The check is printed from Washington Mutual Bank, a real institution it seems. There is even a phone number and a contact name which I called on a Sunday morning and it picks up. Message says please leave messages for "Global Financial Management" and someone will call you back. If you want this material you are welcome to it or direct me as to who to give it to or report this incident to. Oh, I forgot you can't have the "check"- I cosigned it and bought a new boat with it (just kidding). Thank you again- Gerald
