    I just received a call from Jamaica telling me that they had a 3.5 million cashiers check for me and all I had to do was provide my checking account number. When I asked for his name and why I was getting this check he refused to answer and kept pushing for my account information. I saw on the news to gather as much information and report it to the police. I had the name an number that appeared on caller id and wrote down what he wanted. When calling the police they told me they did not handle this type of thing and said to call the attorney general in pittsburgh. I did so and was told the number was out of their juristication. Just wanted to pass this on to all consumers to beware!!!!
