Can anybody give me some information about Australian International Lottery.

My name is Naresh.I am a computer engineer from the India. I have been studying the e-gold's security system for about 5 years now. I discovered a secret that can make you money on it. Yes,call it hacking but I don't think so. To me it's a lapse in security system and you get money from it into your e-gold a/c without any alert to the e-gold security systems.

I have a software that made me understand this. Make a particular spend accompanied by a certain memo to a particular e-gold number and 900% return in 1hr automatically. I just comes back. I tried $1,$2,$3,$4,..............,$10,but nothing.by the time I put in $11, after 1hr, i got $ 99 in my egold.After this, i tried $12,.....................,$20,but got no response. So i tried $11 again and surprisingly after 1hrs i got $99 back automatically later I discovered that the number 11 and putting the last two digits of your e-gold account as the change is synonymous to e-gold's security system.more like a blind number. Believe it or not, this just simply works. Ind y
Call me to get the software.

2006-07-06 22:00:43 -
My brother received this letter, he does not have a arm or leg. These people are horrid, praying on the uninformed and naive. I will contact the FBI and whoever else can do something to stop this kind of terrible fraud.

My daughter received a letter regarding the "Irish Random Lottery". Included was a check for $2995.30 to cover the clearance fee for her HUGE winnings.
She made a phone call to Precore USA, the sponsoring company and the company the check was drawn on. They sounded legit and said to proceed. Next, she called Royal Imperial Financial Management, the claim agent. They also sounded legitimate.
Supposedly, the prize money must be claimed by July 14th. What if she just cashes the check and doesn't send in the "clearance fee"?
Comments please.

O.k This Irish Random Lotto Is Real, I mean Really A Fake. I think We Should get the FBI involved real fast. We should have the F.B.I tap our phones so they could track these people down. My wife told me she was talking to another person who had the same Agent as we did, but there is a problem, the agent the other lady had, has an Ireland phone number. My wife then asked me how she could have 2 numbers I then told her Cell Phones. Then we should take all of these people to Court make it a Class Action Lawsuit and each of us Sue these people for the whole 1.4 million dollars for each of us (that’s 1.4 for me and 1.4 for you and so on) Just to make an example to the rest of the world. STOP THE SCAM'S OR YOU WILL BE DELT WITH ACCORDINGLY!!! BTW anyone who has a Monica Rogers Please Feel Free To E-Mail Me. A few more things to consider. If your Lotto Certificate give you an Agent check the number Area codes are a must, If the Area Code matches a Canada Number look at the check does it say Www.kapcousa.com, Look at the address on the check does it say 3120 East Enterprise Brea Ca 92821 on it, Then ask if your Agent you called, Calls you back and the caller ID says Ravi Kumar and the number, do a Google search on Ravi Kumar and see where it takes you. I have done a lot of research so far and these are the questions I have asked myself,
1: If this is a Irish Lotto then Why do I have to contact a Agent in Canada?
2: Why is the Check from California when My Agent is in Canada?
3: Why is Kapco U.S.A supplying this Check?
4: Why is this supposed Check from this Supposed Company in Ca. when the company isn't anywhere near Ca.?
5: Why, when I call my agent and she calls back there is a different name on my Caller ID? i.e. Ravi Kumar
The only way to stop these people is to track them!!!
I have deposited the check but guess what it's staying in the bank I am not withdrawing it, Plus I made copies of the Certificate, Envelope, And the Check, For in case it is a fraud then I could have a level playing ground. Look up these things. The company who supplied the check, the name on the Caller ID, the area code on the Certificate, the address on the check (Map quest, Yahoo Maps), then ask these same question I asked myself. Stand up take control, and do what I want to do
Sue these people when we find them. give them a message
Don't Mess With Me! I'm Your Worst Nightmare!!! And Don't Mess With The U.S Thank You,
Gregg

UPDATE 07-06-06:
I checked my account @ Wachovia this morning, then I called the banks headquarters. The representive for Wachovia told me that the check was posted but the money would not be availible until 07-08-06, then she asked me if there was any concerns of why I am calling about the check I said yes. Then I told her about my plan of action (typed above) and the whole scam. She assured me that if the check was Fake then there would be a big red flag on my account and as long as there was no money taken out of the account My Wife and I would not be held accountable. If the check turned up to be a counterfeit check the bank would take further action against the person(s) when caught, because it is against any Federal Law to counterfeit or defraud any bank or money institute, and she also said that my idea about taps and suing the person(s) involved was a great idea. if you have any questions you can contact me at the following:

Morphia34@aol.com
Morphia35@yahoo.com

My daughter from OLGC Financial Group, INC is this a scam they sent a check do i let her cash it or what need to know asap

We were knid of excited when my husband opened up the evenlope and read the letter. But common sence came over us.

If you have never enterd any contest, then do you really believe that someone is actually going to give you money? Probably not!!

Please understand that these people are scam artisits. They feed off the kind and trusting people.
They are hear today and gone tomarrow.

If you recieve this mail like I did contct the police or postmaster. Aslo, contact the company. Normaly the contact information on the check is correct. The telephone is not the actual companies. It is the number of the person who is scamming you. Call 411 info and obtain the number. Then call and let the company know. They most likely already know what is going on, but it is noice to tell them if it is new to their company. The comapany Precor told me it was thr first time in 15 years, she has expereinced this. If you do cash the checks, understand that yuou will be held liable for the money.

Catherine,
Read some of my posts...or for that matter anyones posts here! I think we have all been through a moment of shock and wonder if this could possibly be real.
ITS NOT!
(almost 1,000 posts on this site alone)and i've seen 2 in the 1,000 that may seem positive...one person claims the tax check went through, (which for that matter mine is sitting in my account til the bank can reclaim it, which they have said they will do) one person claims they got 80,000. (I find that hard to believe!!!) The rest seem DEVESTATED and ready to sue! You figure it out, WHAT IS REAL?


2006-07-06 18:29:37 -
I received a check irisha random lotto also. Is this for real? Need to know asap!! Thanks


2006-07-06 17:13:32 -
Contacted Wells Fargo...gave them the information from my check. They said the account was closed for fraudulant activities.

Contacted BBB...They said the company on the check SMS.ac (located in California) had 46+ complaints already.

I am so depressed since this has happened. I feel that I have been taken advantage of in the worst possible way! My hopes are crushed! Also everyone I have spoken to seems to be dismissing this pretty passively...Not to interested and acting like it is my fault.
If someone figures out how to sue LET ME KNOW!
I am sooooo angry! This is causing me and my new husband (of almost a month) to fight...everyone is on edge!

July 1, 2006 I received a 'Winning Certificate' from IRISH RANDOM LOTTO and a check for $2,995.30 from Precor USA, located in Woodinville, WA 98072-4002 Telephone 866-251-1562. The check was from Bank One in Chicago IL. Bank One was bought out by Chase. I spoke to a gentleman (at above #)and while questioning him I asked him for their Bank's phone number (to verify the check) as well as his supervisor. The guy got really angry with me and hung up on me twice. He swore up & down that he was the head of his department & that there was no one else I could speak to. On the 3rd attempt, I told him I was contacting his local police department.
I then proceeded to call my so-called contact, Judy Taylor, of Royal Imperial Financial Management Group, at 1125 North Brunswick Street Suite 204, Sasketoon SK S7L 7L1. She is an "accreditted agenecy to IRISH RANDOM LOTTO. Tele 514-570-8715. This is some cell number. When speaking to her, not an easy task, because she did not sound like she could speak english well, nor was it french. She herself also got upset when I told her I had more questions and she stated she had a client and wanted to take her lunch. I told her I was paying for this call and that her 'client' & 'lunch' can wait. Her instructions to me are as follows:
1. Cash the $2995.30 check to my bank, when the check clears
2. Go to Western Union and send $2827.00 (remaining $168.30 was the cost to me for sending a large amount) to Peggy Wilson, 1175 W. Broadway Ste. 111, Montreal QC 5R1B6
3. Contact Judy and give her the tracking number from Western Union.
4. Within a half hour she would contact me & give me an ID# supplied from Peggy.
5. At that time after getting the ID# from Judy, she would ask me how I want my winning money ($80,199.00 after a 6.2% Sponsor's commision is taken out) sent to me. Either by bank transfer or they would send a real person to my home to hand me the check. I would then have to show 2 forms of ID in order to get the check.
6. The only stipulation would be that in 3 days I would get a call from someone telling me where they are shooting a commercial to show the world that the IRISH RANDOM LOTTO is real, just like Publisher's Clearing House. She said that my travel expenses would be taken care of.
This is B.S. These people should be tortured to the full extent!

On Monday I recieved a letter from Brenda Jones
204-951-5692. IT STATED THAT i WON 80,500 MINUS THE 5,301.00 COMMISION. I ALSO RECEIVES A CHECK IN THE AMOUNT OF 2,995.30. iT WAS TO COVER THE INTERNATIONAL COSTS OF SENDING THE MONEY TO ME. i SPOKE WITH A WOMEN WHO CLAIMED TO BE bRENDA. SHE STATED THAT i MUST HAVE ENTERED INTO A CONTEST. i HAVE NEVER LEFT THE uNITED STATES, AND KNEW THAT i COULD HAVE NEVER WON THIS. pLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MUST ENTER A CONTEST INORDER TO WIN.

1. I IMMEDIATELTY CONTACTED THE BANK ON THE CHECK. THE ROUTING NUMBER ON THE CHECK DOES NOT MATCH THE NAME OF LISTED ON THE CHECK.

2. I CALLED THE BETTER BUSINESS BURERUA IN SASKETOON, SK. THEY INFORMED ME IT IS A BRAND NEW SCAM IN THEIR AREA. DON'T CASH THE CHECK. PEOPLE ARE BEING ARRESTED FOR CASHING THESE CHECKS. SHE ADVISED ME TO CALL PHONE BUSTERS AND REPORT THIS TO THEM . 1-888-495-8501. I SPOKE AND REPOTED THIS TO THEM. CONTACT MANDY.
3. THE TELEPHONE NUMBER ON THE CHECK FOR THE COMPANY IN FAKE. IT DIALS DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE iRISH RANDOM LOTTERY. YOU CAN'T LEAVE A MESSAGE NOR SPEAK WITH A LIVE OPPERATOR. I CONTACTED 411 INFORMATION AND FOUND THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF THE COMPANY PRECOR LISTED ON THE CHECK. I SPOKE WITH THE FRAUD DEPT. CHRISTIE. sHE CONFIRMED IT WAS A STOLEN ACCOUNT. she advised to turn all paper work to the local police AND CALL THE SECRET SERVICE WHO WAS BEGINING AN INVESTIGATION ON THIS. 973-971-3100.
