I received a check like that last year. I called the bank and gave them the account information off of the check and then mailed it to their fraud department. DO NOT CASH OR DEPOSIT IT!!!

...It's an advertising thing... "they" want you to cash the check and then (if your read the "fine print" will be hooked up in some sales pitch or other ultra-high interest money deal... Shred the check, burn it or use it to line the bottom of the bird cage...

I wonder if you own stock somewhere. This could be a dividend check. JP Morgan Chase bank is a very well known bank and I would be surprised if they were knowing involved in some sort of fraud. That being said, anyone can open an account there and issue checks. What was the fed ex return address? There has to be a phone number on it(Fed Ex wont deliver without a #), call them and see what they say. Have your feelers on. I did a google search, and came up with a few examples of people frauding victims, but most of them involved asking for money up front, or some sort of bank account info. It could also be a loan from some unscrupulous loan company, and by cashing the check you are agreeing to a high interest loan. You should look for any writing on the check that states that by signing this document you are agreeing to.... Here is an attorney's blog about what to do in these instances. http://derad.typepad.com/onlinecrimebytes/2007/05/more_on_job_off.html I hope that it is really your money. Good luck!

Talk to your own bank about it. They will know what to do. Or you could call JP morgan Chase bank. If you do cash the cheque, do not touch the funds for a couple of months - that way if it bounces you will not have spent the money already.

JP Morgan Chase is a REAL bank.. Its most likely a bank check that they are offering to you and it comes with a APR. If you need it, cash it, but you will be charged interest rate every month for the remaining balance... YOU WILL NEED TO PAY IT OFF.

You can cash the check, but if it is a scam, then in a few weeks the bank will be back on you for the money Usually, scammers say they are overpaying you for some reason, so you cash the check, send them a smaller amount, you keeping the rest Then, in a few weeks the bank comes calling for the full amount

Well I would first call the bank and ask them about it.You dont want to go and cash it without knowing what it's for and end up getting yourself into somthing that might put you back some bucks.Im sure they can assist you in telling you were it came from and what it is for.And if you did win or it is lajet...congrats!

whenever an bank unknown to you sends a check they probably want to get into you bank account and take out money. i suggest you take the check to a person at your bank and let them see over it just in case it is real.
