Customer contacted me using same exact text as mentioned in this scammers alert. Said her boss sent me a check for her total paycheck amount. Situation got worse when she continued to text me very frequently requesting my immediate action to deposit the check (that spelled Anchorage, AK wrong on the suspicious Wells Fargo check) and send her a Vanilla Reload Network card pin number so she could immediately access the money.

I am going to both Wells Fargo and the U.S. Post Office now to report this mail and bank fraud activity and advise you to immediately decline offers like this should you be unfortunate to receive one as I did.

Best to you
