Not a scam: Banks sending foreclosure-restitution checks

(WFLX) - You may soon receive a nice check in the mail, and, no, it is not a scam!

In Florida, 683,000 homeowners are expected to receive foreclosure-restitution checks beginning this month. But banks are worried residents could mistake the letters for a scam or junk mail.

Those eligible for the cash should have received a postcard within the last two weeks alerting them of a check.

In Palm Beach County, $50,000 residents were sent a postcard.
