I recieved a check and would like to find more about the scam


2006-08-25 18:40:24 - Chris
I too have received a Letter from British Gaming Commision that I have won $85,500.00. And inside was a 'genuine' (to me) check for $2,875.45 that I would need to cash to pay for 'international clearance fees' totalling $2,720.00.

Maybe I will just call them and curse them out!!!
He he!!


2006-08-25 15:43:51 -
I called the bank that the check was drawn on & they checked it out & told me that it wasn't real. If it had been I would have scammed these F#@!ers back & kept the money. It was such an awesome feeling to think that I actually was about to come into some money, and to find out that it was all a scam really pisses me off. I kind of figured that it wasn't for real, but part of me wanted it to be real, so bad. Anyone know what I mean? :(


2006-08-25 10:09:05 -
I sent them a reply telling them I was with the FBI and that when I caught them, I was going to make sure they were jailed with the meanest and baddest crimals who happened to like to rape men all night long!!

I know, Mean and Vicious I am.....sure hope Tom is listening, because he is next

I received a letter and check for $4975. I knew it was not real but having a finacial slump almost made me hope for the best. Actually the only thing that might have been real about this was the eighty nine cent Canadian stamp on the envelope. I think they tried to get around the postal involvement by not putting any kind of address but mine on the envelope. So there is no way to track it. The only markings on it is the zipcode from my address. You would think that if they put as much trouble into something legitmate they would be rich. Maybe it is the thrill of stupidity.

I received a Swiss Lotto Certificate of Award letter saying that I had won $86K. It stated that a tax and clearance fee of $2,900.80 has been financed with the enclosed check. However the check was for $2,100.50. It was drawn on Simmons First National Bank which is a legit bank in Arkansas. It was issued by Central Events, Inc in Conway, Ark. I sent an email to the Conway Chamber of Commerce. They replied saying that Central Events was not a member of their chamber. I was told to contact some folks at Cowell Baker a subsidiary of United Trust Corp in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. I checked the business directory for Hubbards, NS. They had no listing for either company. I was told to call 1-780-695-3820. Area code 780 is for northern Alberta. So the company in Nova Scotia has an Alberta area code. I called anyway and talked to some dude I could barely understand. When I started asking about these discrepancies, the dude hung up. Nuff said. I'll just keep on taking my chances with real games like the Powerball and Mega Millions.

ok, so if they send you a check, the check is good, but you have not cashed it and you call and ask them why there is an experation date on collecting your winnings, you know something is wrong. but the check is good, your bank will cash it, the bank drawn on it will cash it......where does the money come from? even if the checks are counterfit, which most are, the company who's account it was originally written on will cover it. for those of us who are honest and look this stuff up, we are trying to help those who fall for it.
my questions are: How are they getting the company checking account numbers? why do the company's still cover the checks and how can we catch these Bast**d's?
they should go to jail! and Tom Standstill...you are an ass and I hope if you are one of the scammers I hope you go to jail and get butt F***ed every night!!


2006-08-24 13:54:55 -
What if you went directly to the bank the check is drawn on and cashed it there? There wouldn't be any account to take it back out of because you wouldn't have a bank account there?


2006-08-24 12:45:26 -
Tell me about poweball lottery international

The Better Business Bureau states that International Lotteries are ILLEGAL. DO NOT give out any of your account information to anyone who asks for it- they will drain your account before you even catch on that it is a scam.
If you cash the check that was sent in the mail- YOU will be responsible to pay the bank back-not the con-artist.
These scams are originated from out of the country-so they are harder to prosecute.
