Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I have a small non-profit ministry. I just started this ministry. I talk to variable people on my youtube channel daily or at least 4x a week every week. One of my associates contacted me from INDIA and wanted me to receive this check from another missionary lady that call herself Angela Stroup. She claim is overseas and wanted to send me and my INDIA friend a offering to help other poor people here in USA. She wanted me to distribute the monies after I deposit the check and send her a copy of the deposit slip. This check looks real and has the logo business HEALTHTEXAS PROVIDER NETWORK on the left hand corner with BANK OF AMERICA, N.A. on it dated for 12/05/2016. The amount is $49,500.00 USA dollars. This person claim her lawyer wrote out the check and kept writing me to check to see if I deposited it yet as many are waiting for the monies for the holidays. She claim she would be back in USA in Texas to attend some meeting by December 29. I just do not know this person well enough to cash any check for this amount and I am reporting it to BBB. I tried contacting the local police to check it out and all they said was: It look like a real check. But I will not be responsible for paying this amount back to any bank. We do not have a BANK OF AMERICA in Colorado any more, so I am just reporting this as I think it is a scam because I never could get this person to talk to me on SKYPE or live and on the letter there is no forwarding address.
