Complaint / review text:
I received a letter from Fidelity Securities Inc, along with a check for $4875 from the Harris Bank Central N. A., in Illinois. I was instructed to call the number given before I tried to use the check.
When I called the # I was told the check was now released & I could go ahead & deposit the check, & when it cleared I was to send $2875 to a tax agent, & was assured it was NOT a hoax.
When I returned to the bank I found, not only was the check fictitious, but I now had charges from the bank for trying to withdraw the money. The address on the check was Fidelity Securities Inc. PO Box 1760 Tuscaloosa Al 35403
