Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

This is a fake check. If you deposit it, it will take about 14 days to come back as fake. In the mean time your money that you send will be taken and be gone and then when the check comes back you are on the hook for that check as well.

.

This is a well known scam that we see here a couple dozen times a week on the site..

.

Please don't fall for it or you will lose your money and be liable for more..
