Important Important Important

REPORT THIS FRAUD TO:

1. FIRST CALL: THE CANADIAN PHONEBUSTERS toll free at 1-888-495-8501 the more people that call the easier it is to catch these crooks! In June alone they caught 590 people who are now facing 29 yrs. in prison (personally I think they deserve more) and all assets are frozen. These 590 people took 2.8 million people for over a billion dollars! A judge in Canada can direct any assets froze go back to the victims, but you would have to have reported it here. You may not recieve anything, but at least the crooks can be caught.

2. CALL THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION toll free at
1-877-382-4357. If they get enough phone calls from people they will start a class action suit against these people, it is important that enough of us call!!! after you have called rewrite these numbers on the site with the information that you called.

I HOPE SOME OF US RECOVER OUR LOSSES, OR AT LEAST THE CROOKS GO TO JAIL!!!

OTHER INFO I WAS TOLD BY THE AUTHORITIES IS:

the cell phone company being used in Canada is fido solutions, a very common company, and traceable numbers to help catch the crooks

This scam has been going on since the 1800's, even lawyers, doctors and very educated people have fallen for it, so don't beat yourself up if you are a victim.

IT IS ILLEGAL IN THE U.S. TO PLAY ANY INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY!!!--A FEDERAL LAW

I hope this helps, write on the site if you have done these things!! Thank you for your help! Ellen

DO NOT LISTEN TO 'TOM STANDSTILL'....if that's his real name....he is making himself look like one of the scammers by everything he has written on here. I'm tired of being made a fool, I feel bad for everyone who is in the same situation....if you get one of these checks, make it known to your bank and to your local authorities.

I just received a complaint regarding a fraudulant lotto letter. International Random Lotto mailed a winner notification to a local resident but the "Assistance Check" that was enclosed was not honored at the bank. We are now investigating the complaint and have contacted the FBI and U.S. Secret Service (Department of Treasury) for assistance. If you are able to provide any information please e-mail me. Thanks.

I recently recieved a Hamplin Data Services Survey. It had questions about what I would do with a million dollars and how I would spend it. I filled it out and sent it in.
Two weeks later,Dear ..... to decide who would receive number allocations from our complete GUARANTEED AMERICAN POWERBALL WINNING NUMBER PROGRAM we conducted a grand slam elimination contest. Congratulations ....... the official results show you have won a GRAND SLAM! To claim your GRAND SLAMnumber allocation return your form and $10.
They show on the bottom of the letter how you won. They only skipped every other name all the way until they got to me and another name and of course my name was the winner. The letter is from Research Department Locked Bag 32 Bundall QLD 4217 Australia.
Of course I am trying to get information if anyone else has done this. I know its probably a scam. Together with this site maybe we can take a stand against fraud. key2hug@yahoo.com

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://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.
