I recieved a letter in the mail that had a check for $3845.65. they claim i won a lottery but it sounds way to good to be true. is north am dispersment a real trust worthy company, i wish it was but after hearing all the comments i believe it is a scam.


2006-06-30 13:36:54 - YOUR LAST WARNING----STOP BEING SO GULLIBLE
EVERYONE HERE IS ASKING THE SAME QUESTIONS BUT W/ DIFFERENT NAMES OF THE LOTTO. SERIOUSLY DO YOU HAVE TO READ ALL 800-SOMETHING COMMENTS JUST TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS A SCAM. SOME PEOPLE ARE SO EASY CONNED..JUST THINK ABOUT IT, YOU DIDNT ENTER ANY LOTTO OR DRAWING AND NOW YOU WON A MONSTROUS AMOUNT OF MONEY. NOT VERY LIKELY AT ALL. YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING STRUCK BY LIGHTING.

SO PLEASE PEOPLE STOP ASKING IF YOU REALLY DID WIN OR NOT. BETTER YET GO TO THE POLICE OR CALL THE FRAUD DEPT. OR SOMETHING. BUT IF YOU CASH THAT CHECK YOU WILL BE SORRY. CONSIDER THIS MY PART IN HELPING PEOPLE.. EVEN IF SOME OF YOU GET OFFENDED, I JUST GET SO MAD SEEING PEOPLE GETTING TAKIN'. SO IF YOU DONT LISTEN TO THIS WARNING THEN YOU DESERVE EVERY LITTLE MISFORTUNE THAT LETTER IS GOING TO CAUSE YOU!

I seem to have somehow won the UK Net International Lottery, but have to pay TNT courier Service to receive my winnings. The courier service seems legit but I can't find info on the Lottery co. They say my winnings are insured by Lloyds of London and guaranteed by the British Govt. so I checked with both and am waiting to hear back.


2006-06-29 23:14:51 - Cheryl
I received a letter from the BRITISH RANDOM LOTTERY, and was thinking, after reading all of the complaints that this lotto is illegit, why couldn't i just leave the money in my acct. NOT wire anyone any money as requested by the "north american agent" and just let it sit...they can't call the authorities on me, because they are trying to scam me, so why would they do that? AND, if the check is a fake, i lose nothing because I wouldn't use anything out of it...

I just received a letter and a check in the mail claiming I won an Irish random lottery. The check is for $2998.60. I just have to send back $2845.00 for a clearance fee. I supposely won $85,500.00 but 6.2% of that is for sponsor's commision. I know it is a fake and would like to warn the elderly that would not understand that. Thanks

Does anyone know how we can stop all these scams?


2006-06-29 21:42:57 -
I spoke to Ms Stacy Clarke at 1-705-770-0376 and she told me to deposit the money and then Western Union $2,800.00 to Tom Williams at 4640 Bay Street in Whitby Ontario Canada M9N2B6. Western Union would charge me $150.00 and the rest of the money was mine plus I would receive $245,025.00 after I called her back once I did the Western Union.


2006-06-29 21:38:59 -
I also received a check for $4,975.00 from OLGC Financial Group Inc. I wish this wasn't a scam because I sure could use the money.

Has anyone received a letter with a check in it from Irish Random Lotto?


2006-06-29 14:08:51 - Steve Mendez
I received a letter from an australian international lotto, and i know it's a scam and i would like to report it; the address they gave me was Sunlife financial group 1125 North Brunswick Suite 204 Sasketoon, Sk S7L 7L1 And the telephone # is #306 880 4235


2006-06-29 13:36:49 -
I got the same letter yesterday but the check was from Landis Supply of New Jersey, Inc. Found thier number on the net and called them. The guy at the business in NJ says they have a supplier in Canada that check payments were sent to that never received them. Someone in Canada is intercepting legitimate company checks in the mail and then using this information to forge the checks they are sending out. Don't send these people any money!!!


2006-06-29 07:21:14 -
Boy did I almost get taken!! I too received a letter from Spanish El-Gordo Lottery AND British Random Lotto. I did a search on the first letter and found what I THOUGHT was a legitimate lotto, I called the post office and they hadn't heard anything about a lotto scam, and so I fell for the letter. Yesterday I went to the bank to start the claiming procedure and immagine my suprise when I found out the check never cleared. Thank goodness I didn't have any of my own money to send or I would have lost all. Guess I should have done a Google search and I would have saved myself a LOT of trouble. Guess Mom was right never fall for anything.

I want to say that the person or people whos responsible for sending out this lottery scams should be put in jail.Because I recieved a letter saying I won the lottery of $85,500.00.I was so over joyed an excited, because I really could use the money.But was I so hurt when I found out it was a scam. At that moment I felt hurt and betrayed.Because a person like me whos is'nt finiacally stable and could really use the money to make a big change in my life.Those people are scam artist and shonld be put in jail for life if it was left up to me.
