irish lottery scams? I got one fromn british lottery, and the check looked so real until I saw the "VOID" in the backdrop of the check. It could've gone unnoticed easily but since I was a skeptic I looked at it from every corner until I saw it. Sort of like those pictures with those patterns that you have to look at a certain way before you realize the actual 3-D image.

I received a Congratulations form from Haplin Data Services with address Locked Bag 32, Bundall, QLD 4217 Australia as a Grand Slam Winner to receive number allocations from the Guaranteed Philippines Super Lotto Number Program.

It says that to claim my Grand Slam number allocation, I have to return the form with P500 cash to the address given above using a Security Envelope for the cash payment.

My immediate reaction is to return the form with the P500 cash but when I browsed by computer Internet, I found your website and read about frauds or international lottery scams.

Is this a scam? Pls. reply. thank you

I just received a letter today with a check in it saying if i sent this check to this agency than i would call them back and they would give me a delivery date on the check. Is this a fraud because the check is real with finger print ids. So is it real or fake it is North American Sweepstake.

I just received a check for almost $3000 yesterday and was told I won a lottery or sweepstakes. I thought I was super lucky. Then I began to read the letter more carefully, there were so many spelling mistakes and the paper they printed it on looked a bit hinky too. I decided to look online to see if was a scam b/c I am not that lucky. And sure enough, it is.

the newest scam to come to my family friend is on a letter head from Union Trust Finance, 11 Hill Ave., St John, NF, Canada, A5C 3x6 (telephone# 1-778-316-1454). the check enclosed was drawn on Wachovia Bank & the compnay name they used on the check was Sterling Publishing Co. out of New York, NY the check was in the amount of 4800.00. called the number , of course the voice mail was full , but recieved call back within 5 minutes from a lady that when i asked if her name was Sarah Lewis she hesitated then said sure.......when i told her it was illegal for US citizens to play international lotteries, she got nasty with me then hung up. my friend has recieved 6 different letters with cheks in them in the last month......didn't cash any of them, just took them to the post office & turn them in!

I received a letter from bonanza 2000 Austrailian Int'l Lotto. The letter stated that I was selected at random to receive 85,500.00 and it also included a check for 2,998.55 which was drawn on a Bank Of America bank, which that is the bank I am with. I went to the bank and asked them was the check legitatment and they said yes. So thinking this was okay I deposited the the check and withdrew the money the next day and I was told the by the claim agent Pamela Brown of Kingsway Financiers located at 294 Maplewood Ave Ste 202, Winnipeg, MB R3L 1A7 (204) 951-3715 to send the money via western union to a Diane Crave in Ontario Canada because she was my North American agent. This Pamela Brown said the 2,998.55 was the Int'l clearance fees and that I would recieve my check in 3 business days. I did not receive anything and I called again they answered and I was told I would receive it in 3 more business days and to no avail I did not. Now when I call I get the answering machine that means they are still in the fraud business because sometimes the machine is full and other times you can leave a message. I am telling you this because maybe it can help someone else not to be fooled by these people. I hope you find them and prosecute to the fullest.

My husband recieved such a letter from the Irish Random Lottery and he cashed the check at a store. The number we called said that since we didn't have a bank account to go ahead and cash the check and send the money in to them to recieve the big winnings or to keep it. He kept the winnings and now the store he cashed it at is saying they are going to take him to court. We didn't know it was a fraud. What are we supposed to do?

I received a check for $4975.00. It was from OLGC Fi nacial Group Inc They made it look real with routing and bank account numbers but I know that it is as phony as they are and I am turning it over to the local law enforcment here hoping to spare someone who can't see through evil scams

CASH THE CHECKS THEY ARE ALL GOOD!!! The fruad is what you read here from crazy women milking section 8 and stamps. Then they have boyfriends living with them and 200 relatives while the state picks up 95% of all living costs and they run around like whores in heat having more kids. GOD, HELP STOP the madness!!
Live the dream "LOTTO" its what makes the world great. BE A WINNER!!! Get YOUR MONEY.

If you received a check in the mail from some supposed lottery you never entered it is without a doubt a scam and the check will eventually turn out to be fake. Read the warnings and stories in this thread, or here where we have posted information on it:
http://www.fraudwatchers.org/forums/showthread.php?t=1746

The ones who should be notified is the US Postal Inspection Service as this is a case of mail fraud. Turn in the envelope, letter and check to them. You can get their contact details from the phone book, your local post office, or contact them through their website here:
http://www.usps.com/postalinspectors/

If you cash the check you may receive the money for it into your account, but the check will still bounce regardless of what they tell you at the counter. And according to the law you will be responsible for paying back the amount, once again regardless of what they have told you at the bank. They may also charge you with check fraud if you can't pay back the amount. Do not cash the check, and if you have, do not spend the money, or you could get yourself into a lot of trouble.



Oh, and will someone please arrest that idiot Tom Standing, he needs therapy. Block his IP ADMIN. Anyone foolish enough to actually state they are willing to cash forged cheques for a fee is obviously not worth the air he breates.
