My wife and I have a donation Cheque for you (scam alert)

Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

This is the ultimate in “mystery scam” messages — just one line with no signature or name. Someone has a check for you. But who is it? And why? Actually we know the answer: it is a scammer, and the purpose of the (non-existent) check is to serve as a gimmick to pick your pocket.
