N.C. Business Owners Get Warning From The BBB

The Better Business Bureau says a scammer is emailing businesses, wanting to buy a product from them for an orphanage in Africa. The Bureau says the scammers appear to use MasterCard and Bank of America credit cards. One business owner was asked to wire $2,000 via Western Union to the PKK Shipping Company, which the Bureau says is located in Ghana.

    I have also recieved the same letter with a check for 4,800 dollars and says that i must pay 3,500 dollars in goverment taxes... seems legit the only thing i am ify about it is if you cash the check, pay your "taxes" and the check comes up to be a fraud. So im not sure if its real or not im having some people look into it..
