    Hi Jill
    First off privacy source is a real company that worked with BoA. They got sued by a class action lawsuit. Had you ever have any credit cards through BoA?

    However without seeing your check, I cant tell if it is a real check or scam.
    Your best bet would be to go to a branch and see if you can cash it.

    let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help

      I really need to know what the check looks like to be confident because there is even fake Bank of America Cashier's Check out there.

    This is a refund check issued due to a class action lawsuit that an affiliate of Bank of America settled. Many credit cards even if not directly issued through bank of america did fall under the settlement. The checks are being issued currently however as far as a specific check it would be tough to say without viewing it. I would recommend contacting privacy assist and they can assist you with the reasoning behind the refund as well as let you know if it is a legitimate check.
