    .... you have received a surprise gift check of $5,000.00 (tax free money).

    My, my, my! What do you do with it?? :eusa_shifty:

    1. Go on vacation?
    2. Pay off creditcards?
    3. Invest in the stock market?
    4. Go on a shopping spree?
    5. Donate it to the Presidential candidate (your choice)?
    6. Bury it in the backyard?

    ?? Any other idea's :confused:

    I would probably return the check unless I knew where it came from. The old saying if it's too good to be true, it probably is....

    but if the money were legit, I'd pay bills first and then put some in savings and then buy something fun.

    Could be a scam. there are one's out there like that. Where they mail you what looks like a check and when you deposit it you start getting hosed.

    I think I'd buy some stocks, or maybe some gold. After giving 10% to charity of course... :eusa_whistle:
