WheretoGo,

We replied back to your email regarding this and have yet to hear back from you.

I actually find this funny that you think (or someone told you) that the check was fake.  I can guarantee if you receive a cash prize from a Covers Contest you will not receive a 'fake check'.

Anyways man, get back to me email when you get a chance and we'll contact your bank to see what all the fuss is about.

WheretoGo,

All the info I got from you I sent over to our bank and they are looking into this.

This is a strange one that's for sure.

WheretoGo,

Check your email, we just sent you an update.  You should be getting a new check within 4-6 weeks.

I like that he started another ID to address the issue. 

Gutless.

Covers isn't going to send people fake checks for pocket change like $200 or any other amount.

wheretogo, joined feb. 2010.....must have been anticipating a situation 2 months + ago in which he thought he might have a need to do something with another ID or ask Cover a question that he wanted no one to know his main ID he uses as far as other posters go in here...

......about what specific behind would think such a stupid thing.

Every post of this ID made addressing this situation used by an ID created 2+ months ago.

Who joins anything and isn't excited to jump right in and say hello, make some posts, get to know the feel of the place , etc? Instead, these guys just bank IDs away for later use.....

I think when I joined, I posted 50+ times easily that day. Most new guys, who are actually new, would post at least a dozen times, usually more. It's a natural thing to do when joining someplace new to a person, which nthis place is clearly not new.........

I sure as garbage didn't know how to make even a generic avatar after a first post. What a box. What is your real name?

The concept of Covers sending out a 'fake check' for ANY amount ( not to mention $200, which is chump change in our world) was just too 'off the wall' to merit serious consideration.

When all the dust settles, I'd like someone to tell me what the 'real agenda' was in this situation.

I'd be willing to bet that the only thing fake...... is YOU! I haven't won anything here, but judging by how efficiently things are run at covers, it's quite obvious where the problem lays. Get a life and go diss some other fall down site that deserves the bad pr.

Hey Guys,

What happened here is WhereToGo took the $200 check to a Cash One office and for some reason the workers there thought this was a fake check and refused to return it to the customer.

We get our bank to look into this and the check was NOT cashed.  We canceled the initial check and sent him a new one.


We're still waiting to hear if he got the 2nd check yet.

 I have to tell you not all people post. I have been on since the beginning of regular season baseball and this is my very first post on here. Some people just don't post, stop stereotyping!!!

I figure since I haven't posted either here is my chance. When I saw the headline I couldn't help but check it out know I know that people spend all day on the internet. Must be nice to be so rich that you can stay home all day posting stuff.
