I was trying to figure if this was really and have any one been able to cash the 2995 check

I received a letter and a check for $2998.60 from the Irish Random Lotto on June 30. I called a woman named Monica Rogers to see if it were real and she told it was. She told me to deposit (which I did) the check and when it clears I have to call her so that I can pay $2845.00 to their North American Agent for a clearance fee. On July 7 I received a call from the bank telling me that this was a counterfiet check and that they are going to do and investigation. Later I called Moncia Rogers at 1-780-604-0838 and explained to her assistant and what the bank told me. She said that the check is not bogus and that the check had not been properly activated. She also said that have their investigators call me as soon as they activate the check. I still think that this is a scam. I'm not going to get in any trouble cause I didn't know and my bank is going to take care of everything. Hopefully these people will stop with their scams.

I too received the same thing, from Alside. I called the woman whose phone number was listed. She assured me this wasent a scam. I guess I'll put the check in the bank to see if it clears.

I've recieved the same type of check for $2995.96 an I called the claim agent Debra Williams she sounded legitate but I still had some reserves because.....She stated that the clearance fees are to ensure that the alledged money is claimed by only you and that you have to cash the check within a Certain time frame or a stop payment will be afflected upon the check futhermore she stated that if you decide to not send the money after depositing the check that would be my decision........I'm certainly open to any available advise that anyone may have....have the checks cleared or has anyone dealt with any conseqences of cashing this checks...I would just like to know I surely wouldn't want to be caught in a jam behind a SCAM!!!

I think we are all wasting more time than these checks are worth. For those of us fortunate enough to have read all these postings prior to depositing the check your "scam radar" is working just fine. The internet is a truly great way to prevent the instinct for "belief on blind faith" which would cause the average person to jump up and down and deposit these bogus checks. For those who have been duped and actually made the deposit, don't feel so bad, it's a good learning lesson. Scammers are out there and waiting for you. Be extremely cautious and investigate if things don't seem to correlate. The first thing I thought when getting this check is Ireland? When was i ever in Ireland? The next thing I thought is Free Money? Who the hell wants to give me Free Money??? So immediately I went on line and plugged the words "Irish Random Lotto Scam" into the Yahoo search engine and many wonderful links such as this forum link appeared. I think it's getting harder for scammers to make a living when the word gets out so quickly on them now and proactive people like Gregg H who posted below get involved. He sent me the following email which I thought was quite proactive....Hello My name is Gregg H in which you can read a bulletin in the Internatonal Lottery Scams Forum, some where around 41-60 on the pages. I just wanted you to know that make copies of everything you have recieved save them on your computer, then make a back up copy on a cd, this may be very valuable in my search to seek these people out. I am not a Lawyer nor an Law Enforcement Officer. I want to take a wire trcing tap on my phone to find these people and if we all do this we will find these people. Like I was saying read what I have wrote in the forum. You can reach me through AOL (or) AIM by my name of Morphia35@aol.com (or) MSN Messenger Morphia33@msn.com (or) Yahoo Messenger Morphia35@yahoo.com Please feel free to contact me in any of these sources. Hope you don't mind me posting this Gregg but I think you are doing a great thing if you pursue these bastards relentlessly. I wish I had more time to do the same. From what I can see these scam artists originated in Nigeria and first became the Spanish Random Lotto which morphed into the British Random Lotto and then into the Irish Random Lotto as well as several other permutations of it. It must be working to some extent otherwise why would they be permutating so fast. Scammers are always trying to stay 2 steps ahead of the law. Hit and run and leave with the cash. Good luck all.
