So I got one of those age old scam letters in the mail today. Says I won a bunch of money in a Canadian lottery, and they included a check for $4,000 as "part of my winnings" The check itself is real. It from Wachovia bank and apparently from a real company. However, I'm not stupid enough to believe that I actually won this money, considering I never even entered a Canadian lottery...being from the US and all. I'm assuming they want me to cash it so they can somehow gain my information and steal what's in my account, right? Well, what if I opened a brand new checking account, with diddly squat in it, and deposited this check there? If by some miracle it clears would I be home free?
