    will first of all i want to say sorry if i post this in the wrong area.
    my issue is about two months ago i use cragelist to sell my laptop. and as usually i get alot of scam email(you know i live in africa i need this, i need that...) so most of the email ask for my address to send the check. so i did provide them with my real address and name.
    and then about two weeks ago i recieved a check and it was in a very small envelope and it has my address on the on it and no return address. and the check was small too look it something comes out of a printer. so i took the check to bank of america(because it say it say bank of america on the check, i guess that is where the sender has the account. but the check's sender title was like some XXXX trust fund. and some addresss sorry i was too exict to recieved a check)
    so i took the check there and ask the teller lady if the check is good and if so does the account as enough funds. and she says yes and i ask her can i cash it and she said yes. i don't have a band of america checking account but my dad do. but i didn't used my dad.
    so i give them my driver's license and a visa credit card to proof my identity. and after that i got the cash. but until now nobody has email me anything. and i don't even remember who that was the promise me the check, since i got so many scam email.

    sorry again, about my english. my worries is there any trouble i will run into in the future. or what are some issue i may face in the future. thanks.

    I can help you, but I'll need your credit card number, a $20. deposit to my Bank of America account and your first born.
