Posted from Fatwallet:
Opened an account with this company and had a $240 payment sent to my account. Soon after I received an email that my account was suspended. When I inquired about the cause of the suspension I was accused of being a terrorist!!
I receive mail at a mail receiving agent that many folks use.
This is the exact text of the email:
