Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson. Never assume all mail, is junk mail. While cleaning out a pile of unopened envelope; I stumbled upon a check from Chase. Generally, when I see mail from major banks, I assume it’s junk mail.  When I opened the envelope, I was surprised to find out it was a check written from Chase, that it was back pay from some interest they may have charged me during my deployment in Afghanistan over five years ago. The check was dated last May 2016. Almost a year ago!

To my surprise was the amount on it. $2,883! It was like stumbling upon buried treasure! As soon I called Customer Service to verify if it’s still valid, I went ahead deposited it for a rainy day.
