Worth County, GA (WALB) –  A Worth County man worries senior citizens may fall victim to scam letters like the one he received last week. 

Dale Hall admits he was tempted by the check for $2,700 he received in the mail. A letter accompanying the check said that it was an advance on government money he was owed.

He says he knows that in these tough economic times some people might deposit checks like this, and if they do the scammers could steal your bank information and your money.

"Advise people that there are so many scams going on, they really need to pay attention to what comes in their mail," said Hall.

Hall took the check to the Worth County Sheriff's Office, and Investigators told him it was a scam. He warns others not to cash them.
