unfortunately morgan, you probably ended up scamming someone by keeping the money. it had to come from somewhere right??
Well, with all due respect Melanie, I didn't 'scam' anyone. I took a check, made out to me to a bank upon which it was drawn. The burden was on the bank to authenticate the check, validate the sender, routing # etc. before cashing it. I assumed the bank confirmed the funds before issuing the check. it's not like I forged a check or took money from some poor soul's account, as your tone implies. Since the check was
valid enough to have been cashed, I assumed that even if there was a scam in play, that the perpetrators spent money to get it off the ground and keep it going long enough to receive funds. If I benefitted from that, who am I to question the cosmic accountants who usually screw me royally? I've certainly been scammed enough time. Usually by supposedly legit businesses and the government. For all the times I've been double-billed, short-changed, been screwed out of fees, for every time AOL billed me after my authorization was revoked, and hundreds of other inequities, I was due.
You want 'fair'? talk to my kids, so do they. I'd like to know where this FIR is and how I can get tickets
