If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Don't give information to people you don't know. If it is legitimate they won't mind you verifying the information with the company before you proceed.

Noted. Thanks for the information. It's amazing how many scams are out there. I noticed lately that I've been getting a lot of "recorded" message phone calls -- answer the phone and it's a stupid recording. I hate those.

I wonder if the handsome prince from Albania is going to give me the $250,000.00 he promised me for cashing the his check?
