Talk about a lucky close call. But I guess all that matters is the end result, which in this case was good. Unfortunately, at least one of the others who posted a comment was not so lucky.

I am currently a victim of the current internet scam. I live in the state of Georgia. I was arrested on June 15th 2006 for 1st Degree Forgery. I personally presented the check inside of a SunTrust Bank in Georgia. I did not endorse the back of the check nor received funds from it. The teller advised me that the signatures did not match on the check and she contacted her Branch Supervisor. Approximately 10 minutes later, I was approached and intimated by two police officers in which I was questioned. I gave the officers the fed ex package it came in as well as the emailed instructions to the officers. They claimed to arrested me because I fumbled over my story due to the fact that I have NEVER in my life been in trouble with the law as well as I was threatened by way of harm by these individuals. I face a Calendar Call with Gwinnett County Court on February 20th 2006 which in turn I will plead "not guilty." If this happens to face a jury trial, I am willing to go all the way due to the fact that I was scammed and I have found that people get screwed really bad just thinking to fall for something too good to be true such as I did. I cannot afford to have my future messed up.
I will take the information given on this website and present as evidence. I do as well have contacts that still email me to tell me that they have been scammed as well. I also filed a complaint with the FBI Internet Crimes Unit, and the Federal Trade Commission. - Link to comment
