This company is a scam BEWARE!!!! I received a letter saying they wanted me to do a money gram at my local Walmart. Then send the money to some guy in Canada. These scam artist suck and I hope they get caught I just talked to my local cop and he said their wasn't a lot he could do about it. This is really a FBI issue. They won't do anything either so I am trying to warn as many people as possible. Pass on the word. Help out the honest people in the world. Some people are in tight situations where money is tight and they get a deal like this and they think I finally got a break but please beware that it will only make your situation worse.Thanks everyone have a great day!!!
