    I got mine today. I think it is those Jamaicans in Kingston. I got a call 3 times non stop last night and then got the letter today. I never answer as 800# or unknown caller.
    There is no PCH letter head or a return address. No return address.All are Florida, but sent from Austin, Texas. The Jamaicans operate out of Florida. They also prey on seniors.

    Strange….my letter had a Quebec phone number the envelope was post marked TX and the check was written on a company in NC….I am sure it is a scam/fraud!

    Norma,

    My father received the same exact letter to a “T”, unfortunately this is a scam. They will request that you deposit the check and once done they will have you call them back for further instructions. They will then ask you to send them $5,500 in cash overnight either via FedEx or UPS to have it guarantee by 8am and to wrap the money in newspaper and put it on a box (apparently employees steal money based on what they claim). They will tell you this money is to cover “their” lawyer fees and their lawyer will come out and talk to you about whats next. Of course once they receive the money, the number you were calling in Canada and the person you were speaking too will vanish and you will get a recording saying “this number is disconnected and no longer in service”. I recommend either tossing the letter out and never thinking about it again or you can provide this information to the proper authorities (local police and contact your state attorney general for more instructions from them), i hope this helps.

      My Father received the same letter that you have. We are trying to prove to him that it is a scam but he doesn’t believe us.
