The check is in the mail, but it's a scam

The Conway Police have issued a warning against a secret-shopping scam that sends unsuspecting folks a letter, check, and evaulation form. 

The letter is from Central Trans Service and sent from a US city, but the area code on the check is Canadian.  Another sign that the check is fraudulent is a difference in the payee and sender companies.

If you suspect you have received something in the mail that fits this description, contact your local police department.  Do NOT cash the check.  For more information about the letter many local residents have received, check out this Sun News article.
