And lo! the plot thickens

So I took that big ass check to Wachovia yesterday, where they couldn't really tell me anything, other than to be wary.
But today, I went to Bank of America, where as soon as they ran it through the check reader they agreed it was fraudulent. They kept the check and took down my information (copy of driver's license and phone number).

So I sent this to "Jessica":

I took your check to the bank, and they said that it was fraudulent. They have notified the FBI and Interpol. All of your emails have been collected as evidence, and your IP address has been logged.
Basically, that means you probably won't make it on the flight this weekend, so you can either make alternate arrangments for payment and transportation, or I will continue looking for a roommate who has valid documentation and finanical assets.

It would not surprise me
that you get contacted by the FBI. The amount is big enough for it to be a felony, and the fact that it originated outside of Georgia (and quite possibly the US) would mean an interstate or possibly an international crime. This is getting more interesting by the minute. I have never known anyone who actually was involved this deep in one of these scams. Maybe there is a reward if "she" actually shows up on Saturday, and you help catch "her".

Re: It would not surprise me
No, haven't been contacted. I highly doubt there's anything they can do. As nothing actually happened aside from check fraud, and there's a lot more cases probably open with physical leads, it's most likely not worth their time to actually investigate. Kind of like the break-in here. All they have is a check to go by.
