Well i was scammed :( I deposited a check in my bank account for over $3,000 I was told to send $400 via western union to a supposed office for my sweepstake win to be proccessed.... This was the w.e before July 4th... so we went ahead and had a great fantastic july 4th thinking we were big winners only to get home to find out that we were -$3,000 in our account and as you can imagine we spent that money over that vacation. the only thing that keeps me smiling about the whole incident is that our 6 children had a fantastic July 4th, but we are in debt! ...... there was no sweepstake win, just a fraudulent check that the bank cleared and we spent :(

AHHH that sucks.. I'm sorry to hear that... I cant imagine how much that would affect my family ... you will get through it, I suppose it could be worse... Just keep smiling and enjoy the memories that you have from it like you say your kids had a great time one day you can look back at this and laugh...
