"WORLD WIDE LOTTO INC. Certificate of Award", reads the letter informing me that I have won $65,000. Enclosed with the letter is a check in the amount of $2,999.50 that's supposed to be used as "a tax and clearance fee". These people need to be put in jail. This is the second check I received this year. The first came from EURO LOTTO and I had no idea it was a scam and I actually tried to cash the check, only to be later notified by the check cashing establishment that I could no long cash checks there because I tried to cash a counterfeit check. PEOPLE PLEASE BEWARE OF THE BULLSHIT!
The states, contact Joy Fielding of United Financial Management group, subsicidiary of Switzerland Trust Corporation, 8900 East Street, London Engleng S.E 17 #011-44-795-157-4632
The check is from the account of American Contractors Indemnity Co., 9841 Airport Blvd., 9th floor, Los Angeles, CA 90045
Wells Fargo Bank Ohio, N.A
I am currently contacting the bank
PEACE

Hello there, I don't know if I have contacted the correct person but the 911 dispatch office told me to go to this web site and repor that I have received a letter over stating that I have 250,000 and along witht the letter came a check in the amount of $4,975.00. The check was address to me and came from OLGC Financial Group INC the address was 3556 lutheran parkway suite 380 Wheat Ridge,Co 800033-4355. In the beginning of the letter it stated we are pleaseed to inform you that you are one of the deciared winners of the North-American/ European Sweeepstakes Lotter held on 12-30-2005 in the 2nd category.The letter provided me with serial number. And advised me the inclosed check is to be used to pay taxes for my earnings. However before trying to cash the check to call the number listed below and speak with an agent Stacey Clarke # 1-705-770-0190. I called and she was given my so called claim number. She told me that I would need to deposit the check into my account and then call her back once this has been completed. I asked why do I have to call back once deposited and she stated this is because we are to give you directions on how to proceed to give your portion of the money to the IRS. Something about the call and the notice did not make me feel right but however I went online and did a brief research, by googling the north american / european sweepstakes lottery it brought up awhole bunch of fraud comments came up. I also checked the OLGC Lottery which happens to be legit, but the north american appears to be fraud and by reading some of the stories told they said that individuals from Asia and Canada are using people from the US to deposit this money for funding terriosm. Your probably thinking I have no Idea who you are or why you are emailing me but like I said 911 told me to contact you people about the fraud attempts/ If your not the person to talk too, can you please direct me in the right direction. I just want to help protect other people before some may fall for this kind of scam.

I just received a check for $2,991.25. Claiming I was one of the winners of the British International Lottery programs. (scam). The letter further states I was selected through a computer ballot system draw from one million five hundred thousand names (1,500,000) drawn from Asia, Europe and North America. Now please note I never entered in such a drawing or lottery. I am suppose to be approved for the lump sum of $85,500. Now mind you I was kinda excited when I seen the check but quickly knew something was up a scam. As I read further I see that although the check is payable to my name now I am advised to send this assistance check as they call it to cover any occured clearance fees to my (ha ha) North American Agent. And I will receive further details To a claim agent Judy Anderson of Citation Financial Management Group at 30 Liberty Avenue Suite 224, Manitoba, AB, TX T6X6J5, an accredited agency to the British Random Lotto at (204) 9523247. Also please note the letter asks me to keep this award from public notice until my claim has been processed. MEANING UNTIL THEY GET THE CHECK AND SCREW ME GOOD. . Theprize money must be claimed no later than September 29, 2006. And ensure I contact my agent for the activation and AUTHORISATION OF MY CHECK.
