IS THIS LOTTERY CHECK FOR REAL


2007-01-21 17:29:13 -
On April 20th 2006 i was sent a letter from the United British Lotto stating I was a 3rd catagory winner. ($70,000) would be awarded to me, and a clearance check for the winnings in the amount of $2,980.95 was included with the letter. There was an actual signiture at the bottom of the letter, not a stamped sig. The letter also gave me the ticket numbers i had used.
The letter stated i must contact the agent given at the bottom of the page.(address, Canadian phone number included). When i checked on the net, the company the check was drawn on comes up with a web address etc, and so does Global Financial Management which is apparently a subsidary of the United British Lotto.
Included was a date to claim the winnings and to make sure that the winnings are kept absolutely confidential.
Did anyone receive serial and Ticket numbers on their letters? Did any of the letters give a name of the prize directer of the United British Lotto?

Please contact me if anyone has time so that i may compare and know if i should frame my letter/check also. Thanks!

Friends,

Here is another long running scam you should not get involved in. Here's an example email you'll receive and they ask for 10% up front to cover expenses. NEVER give anyone bank account information or other personal information. The news website they provide for 'honesty purposes' was from 2000, so I am guessing they have either been unable to convince anyone to trust them enough to help get their money or they have been spending the last several years juicing others by referencing this news article. You decide.

Regards,
Mark
