i received a letter from the british random lotto also and a check. It gave me a number and a lady to call, i called to authorize the check and this lady insured me that everything was fine i could cash the check and more checks would be sent to cover fees and that i shouldnt worry everything was ok and congrats cause i won.. Well i nver won anything before in life so i was so happy about it. Hummm. I gotta call from the check casher saying that if i dont call them that they was going to call the cops and have me arrested, for what i thought. now i have to get a lawyer and make some calls to try to straighten this out, question is, who do i call??

My letter arrived yesterday from the 2006 Merchants Point of Sale Prize Pool Lottery. My cashiers check is for 2935.00 and they asked me to cash the check and money.gram them back 2635.00 for taxes. Since my letter did not include any address and did not come by registered mail I was suspicious about it being ligit and was glad that I searched on-line before doing anything about it. I'm going to post it in my office with a letter of warning.

someone should set it up for these jerks and get hold of the authoities. set up a western union wire and catch the person who picks it up. when you wire money they ask what city and state it is going to


2006-06-26 23:11:16 -
oh i also forgot to mention that my winning numbers are the same as everyone elses and they are not all from north american sweepstakes lottery 3-9-14-17-29-37-48 sound familiar


2006-06-26 23:10:43 -

I recieved the letter today, 06-26-06, and it was from North-American sweepstakes lottery. And I know not to press my luck. So I looked it up first. The letter head on mine reads "Macclean and smith finance company inc." and there was no match found. So I looked up the bank and it is a real bank but that did not satisfy me so I looked up the lottery itself and found all of the hundreds of people who have been taken by these jerks. my letter said i won 250,000 and needed to send 3,000 before i could have the money wired to my bank account which tells me that now they are asking for our accounts too. I called the (403)399-3796 and the man who answered claimed to be abe wesley and could barley speek english.It was 7pm and he was still at work??? Odd. He asked for my name and said i'll call you in 2 min. but di not ask for my phone # or my "claim number". I called back and his voicemail came up with the name of JOHN wesley. The letter had no return address just a p.o. box in the note and a canadian stamp. but the p.o. box is in jacksonville, GA. And as i was reading through the complaints every one has made ther were similar notes to my own and the name on ti was john wesley. Just like the name on the voicemail i called but my note said his name was abe????? Do not assume that yours is real. Do not fall for this. Contact the authorities imediatly LLMMEE2@CHARTER.NET

I've been receiving alot of mail fom the Aussie International Winners Circle and they won't stop sending until I send them money. I haven't sent them any money yet because I really do think that this could be a scam. Is it a scam and should I be aware of this?


2006-06-26 22:31:56 -
Bonanza 2000 Australian International Lotto.What frauds they are they robbed me, they took 2,828.00 dollars from me. They wrote to me telling me that I was one of the seventeen international winners picked from Asia,Europe, and north America. They said I won in the third catergory from a total of 1,453,500.00 dollars. From that money I was suppose to get 85,500.00 dollars. Which from that there would be a sponsor charge of 5,301.00 leaving me with 80,199.00 dollars. They sent me a check for 2,993.95. They told me to call my claim agent so I can begin my lottery claim.The claim agents name is Douglas Johnson so he claimed, and I needed to contact him before May 31 2006.I recieved the letter on May26. So I did, thinking wow I've just won something I have never won anything in my life. So when I called Mr. Douglas Johnson he told me to go deposit the check and when it cleared to send a moneygram to a person by the name of Audry Thomas who was the person who had my tax exemption forms. He told me the reason why they sent me the check was to cover the expenses for my tax exemption form. "Now that I think about it they got me good". "They really fooled me". I still losted because, not only that I didn't get the 80,199.00 dollars I also lost 2,828.00 plus 139.00 dollars for western union expenses. The reason why I lost that money is because I thought that I was going to be 80,199.00 dollars richer so I borrowed the money from my friend and send it to Audry thomas at 3879 Lakeshore blvd suite 215 Ottawa Canada K3G2X7. She or he went to go pick up the money the next day at 1:30 pm I sent it on the 30th of May after 5pm sent . They wasted no time. I'm just hoping someone reads this and not fall for what I fell in. I would like to know if anyone has any advice for me on what to do please email me at threedee2425@yahoo.com

Guess what folks.
I recieved 3 "I won" notices.
The first one is from International Ticketing Office in The Netherlands. They want me to send $15.00 for my share of the taxes.They except cash,money order,and credit cards.Since I have none of these I sent a notice back to subtract it from my winnings.
Today I got 2 checks.One from North-Am Disbursement Inc. telling me I won $250,780.00 USD with Ref # NA2003/07229/00. Acct # 10027. Jennifer Prest acct manager. Now thats funny cause I just read a letter with the same Acct # as Jeanett Lonier.
The 2nd. is from Claims Services, Calgary,AB
Triad Claims Service Limited.
Now mind you neither letter says to send money or what to do with the checks but I think I'm going to copy them so I can show everyone that for 2 seconds one day I was rich.


2006-06-26 20:43:41 -
i recieved a north american sweepstakes lottery as well

I too received a cashiers check from North-Am Disbursement for 3800.00 and called and was told that I had to send $3200.00 to 2 different people both in Canada. One named Cathy Brooks and the other Sarah Lewis. They live on the same street in Toronto, Canada. The guy, Victor, told me that this is legitimate and that if I didn't believe it to cash the check and see what happens. He also said that once I Wester Union the money to these 2 women that I would then receive my check for 195k via Fedex within 3 days. I have been scammed by bad checks before and had my accounts closed and the bank will no longer do business with me. My guess...this is a scam too...although very tempting...not worth the consequences.
