    Yes, you did. You just need to send me a $75 processing fee + $25 admin charge to issue you with the cheque.

    I recieved one of these about a month ago. When I first saw it I was suspicious but figured it could be real, but then I read it. Another easy tip to quickly identify a scam is if the sender is telling you to send your password in an email, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT.
    Just use common sense; if it sounds too good to be true or unrealistic, it probably is.
