Yes, there is a Bank of Nova Scotia, but $10G, sounds fishy to me.

I guess you dont watch the Simpsons much?

Embiggen, cromulent....

Sol might find it funny :P

Anyway, cheques are spelt cheques here, not check. eg. I have to check that I spelt Boostys name right before I sent him the cheque.

Sounds fishy to me too. Did you win some Canadian lottery? Because I've won 4 UK and Irish lotteries in a couple weeks.


EDIT:

checks are cheques
liters are litres
and money is funny

lol

I won 10k from Follett of Canada (valid co as far as I can tell) in a cheque on Bank of Nova Scotia (also a valid co) with valid routing and account numbers per the guy I spoke with in the banks presidents office, which is all he would verify for me. he suggested I contact my bank to verify it from thier end. the BoNS and I both suspect a scam but so far, asisde from funds actually being in the account, everything looks to good to be true. and yes, I know to wait severl weeks for the check to really clear before spending any of it, but I doubt its real...LOL)

I wonder if the Feds will let me play along to try and nab one of these guys. sounds like fun!
