Once we are able to verify the check was stopped in-time and the balance remains in our account (approximately 3-days), the original gifted amount, minus any website fees (the payment portal fee is non-refundable; this fee is currently 2.9% plus $.0.30 of the original transaction amount) and minus any additional stop-payment fees (a stop payment fee is currently $30 per check), will be refunded to the individual’s original payment method.

Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction (collectively, “taxes”). It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply to the payments you make or receive, and it is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate authority. Blessings In Disguise, LLC is not responsible for determining whether any taxes apply to your transaction, or for calculating, collecting, reporting or remitting taxes arising from any transaction.
•    Blessings In Disguise, LLC does not have control over who actually receives the gift. A check will be sent to the name and address of the person that you provided accurate information for. Blessings In Disguise, LLC has no control over any “bad actors” attempting to steal and cash the check if a financial institution chooses to complete an illegal transaction.

FINAL NOTES

First, please do not get your hopes up for an incredibly well-written Thank You letter going on-and-on about just how great you are, or even a simple Thank You letter at all. Although those feel good, that is not what this is about. You have done your part and God knows your heart in this! Just as we have personally sent anonymous "gifts" using our own site, all have been received as I can see that the checks have been cashed, most but not all have responded with a written display of gratitude. Now I am certain there is gratitude no matter what, who would not be thankful that they have received free money!?! Again, this is anonymous, it feels good to hear gratitude; however, that is not what this is about. It is all about the caring heart God gave you!     

Second, a quick word of caution from our own life experiences. If you are trying to help someone because their life is a wreck due to addiction of any form, there is very little chance that your money will help and in fact it might do more harm than good. If this is the situation of who you are trying to help, it will take intentional involvement in their lives to try and get them the counseling and help they need, and this service might not be the best option no matter how great your intentions are.
