If you received a check from Precor in relation to the Irish Random Lotto. DO NOT CASH IT.

Precor is not affiliated with the Irish Random Lotto in any way. The check is a fraudulent counterfeit. Should you deposit the check it will be returned to your bank as uncollectable-fraudulent.


2006-07-10 10:03:03 -
Yes, I also received a letter with a check, and they want me to respond with yet another check of mine, then they will send me my $80,000.00. The check looks so real and its on a Bank one, Na.
What do these people want from us?????


2006-07-10 09:43:32 -
I have an employee who'd nephew recieved one of these checks, and they cashed/spent it as well. Please keep us posted on this one.

I RECEIVED A LETTER DATED JUNE 27, 2006 STATING I WON 85,000.00 IN THE IRISH LOTTO. HELD IN BELFAST, IRELAND. THEY SENT ME AN ASSISTANCE CHECK IN THE AMOUNT OF $2,998.02 TO FINANCE INTERNATIONAL CLEARANCE FEES WHICH WAS AN ACTUAL CHECK. I DID CASH THE CHECK AND DEPOSITED IT INTO MY BANK ACCOUNT. THEY WANT ME TO SEND THE $2,884.00 CLEARANCE TO SOMEONE IN ONTARIO CANADA BY MONEYGRAM. THEN I AM TO CALL THEM WITH THE CONFIRMATION NUMBER. THEY WILL THEN DELIVER ME A CASHIER'S FOR 85,000 TO MY DOOR. THEY ASKED ME TO HAVE THE PROPER ID. DRIVER'S LISENCE AND SOCIAL SECURITY CARD. DO YOU THINK THIS IS A SCAM? PLEASE ANSWER AS I HAVE ONE MORE DAY TO SEND THE MONEY OR I WILL FORFIET THE PRIZE MONEY.

How can Bill(my friend) be required to pay back money when he tried to contact the business that was listed on the check? And no one got back to him for days.


2006-07-10 08:39:18 -
Help I just found out that a check a friend cashed was fraudulent will he go to jail?


2006-07-10 02:31:56 -
ok, so I, like everyone else has received this check and letter are cautious. I am too scared to cash the check, however I have read the letter about the person that only got the check and not the letter and cashed it with no problem, however,......we have not heard what happen to him after the cashed check. I am still waiting to hear becaause I have the check in my hands. My name is susan and I am at suesride@hotmail.com

I AM GOING TO CONTACT MY BANK AND THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES.THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE STOPPED. I, LIKE MOST PEOPLE COULD HAVE USED THE $3996.11, LET ALONE THE $80,199.00,AFTER THE SPONSORS COMMISSION. I THOUGHT ABOUT OPENING A SEPERATE SAVINGS ACCOUNT AND PUTTING THE CHECK IN THAT SO THEY WOULD NOT HAVE ANY ACCESS TO MY CHECKING ACCOUNT. BUT I DON'T THINK THATS RIGHT KNOWING THAT IT IS A SCAM. BUT I DID SEE A COMMENT WHERE SOMEONE WAS MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE WHO WERE STILL ASKING IF IT WAS REAL. WHEN I CAME ON THIS SITE I DIDN'T REALIZE HOW IT WORKED AND I ASKED THE QUESTION BEFORE I SAW ALL THE COMMENTS. SO LET'S BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER, WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT.

Last week I received a check in the mail for $2,996.11 from the Genworth Mortgage Insurance Corp. in Raleigh,NC. Phone # 866-840-3103. On the check it says it was issued from a Bank of America in Hartford,CT. Also with the check was a letter stating that I had won a part of the Irish Random Lotto. It gives me a person to contact, Monica Davis of Royal Imperial Financial Management Group at 1125 North Brunswick St. Suite 204, Sasketoon SK S7L 7L1, an accreditted agency to Irish Random Lotto at phone# 204-951-7965. I have not tried either number since I can not make long distance calls from my phone.
The letter calls the check I received a assistance check that will enable me to finance the international clearance fees of $2,826,00. My clearance fee should be remitted to their designated North American Agent.
The letter goes on to say that my name was attached to ticket# 60087-6045 with serial# 012-00115 drew the lucky numbers of 21-27-8-15-34 which won the lottery in the third catecory. It says I have won a lump sum of $85,500.00 in cash credited to file with Ref# WSCT 456780G023. After a 6.2% Sponsor's commision I will receive a total of $80,199.00.
Then it goes on to tell me to contact Monica Davis at the above number no later than July 14, 2006. At that time my agent, Miss Davis, will give me info for activation and authorisation of my check.
Now I have to tell you, I took this check to a friend of mine that owns a check cashing business and he says it looks real to him. Can you please tell me what this is all about?
Thank You!

I too received a check from the Irish Random Lotto in the amoun of $2998.02. I called the number on the letter and was told I needed to deposit the check and wait until it cleared, then wire $2844 to pay the clearance fee. I searched the web for the name of the bank the check was drawn on. It was real. I contacted the company, Alside, to get information and was told not to cash the check under any circumstances because the it was a scam. The company is investigating how their checking info was duplicated. The Alside rep also told me that a couple of people who have cashed or deposited the checks have been contacted and are required to pay back the money. Do what I did you guys, rip up the check and throw it away!!!

I just got a check too. $4,975. Called Ms. Stacy Clarke. (519) 721-1427. She assurred me this was not a scam. I asked how I got into this lottery. She said it was a result of my using my Visa-MC on-line. She wanted to know if I would be "going to the bank tomorrow". I said "sure!". This is really awful!!! Think I'll google her and send her a prize, too.
Has anyone really gone to the FBI?

My husband Michael has also recieved a check from Ms.Stacey Clarke (OLGC)in the amount of $4,975 dollars. He wants to cash it but he doesn't want any trouble with the police. Should he just throw it away or scam the scammers?


2006-07-09 16:58:44 -
sent me an e-mail requesting information, and telling me I won two million five hundred dollars
