These scammers are really getting creative. I wonder why federal agencies aren't doing more to penalize these crooks.

And it continues to go on. I got a letter identical to that from James Hagen this morning. He wasted no time. I knew he didn't do a background check.

I had already figured it ot this morning and started asking about his license so I can check the BBB and I wanted to do a background check on him. When I came across this letter, it's exactly the same.

Stay vigilant.
