    I received a message saying what the note above is saying. Now I Have som questions to ask
    1- How do you know what the last two Numbers are in my Persons SSN??

    2- If I don’t have a savings/checking account , WillI still be eligable for a Refund
    Check??

    3- If the answer is “No “to the Question above, would’nt that be a form of Discrimation ???

    4- If the answer is yes , will I receive my Refund Check At my home Address???
    and can I open up a savings/checking Account with the refund Check???

    The reson i ask these questions is because there is to much theft , I.D.fraud, and Scams happing today. I’ve already been a victim of fake people and their bogus sweepstake Scams which caused me to lose my bank account at a well known Bank,

    But I should have known that Nothing is Free Now a day and I was hoping that , there was some Honest People out there somewhere

    This can Happen to Anyone of us at any givin time or day.. so I do’nt feel like I’am alone when i ask these Questions . I just hope ,that maybe this is for real this time.
    Please reply to these questions
    Thank you for your Prompt Resoultion
