The Question Club
This morning, I received a letter via UPS containing a check in my name for $2,999 from New York Life Insurance through Chase Manhattan Bank. I've NO idea why they would send me such a thing. There is no letter or anything with the check. I brought it to my bank, and they said that they could not verify that it was real, and that I would have to verify it myself.|
It looks very genuine and legit, it's definitely not from Nigeria. I called Chase bank and read the account # off to them, and they said it was indeed valid. Now I am waiting on the life insurance co. to get back to me.
1. Shouldn't the bank be doing this for me?
2. Do you think it is real, or a hoax?
3. What would you do if you received this check? Besides trying to spend it on hookers and blow, of course.
ETA: I figured it out. It's from my future roommate from Australia, for the rent. Why she sent it through a life insurance agency (and in that amount) is still confusing me though.
No shopping for me =(
ETA2, oh it was a hoax, of course.
