I received a check for 2994.13. It seemed very suspicious. I looked the check over with a flashlight ahd magnifying glass adn found nothing wrong. I called the # on the check and was told it was real and the funds were there. I took it to the bank. It cleared the bank 2 days latter. I thought that meant it was good. Now the check is being held for fraud. I did not mail anything to the company, we decided to keep the money. We thought we had $3000 why push it . now we have used some of the money and my bank account is now negative. I'm going to the bank to talk to them. please don't cash your check. I don't want anyone else to go through this. it's nice to think it is legit, but i'm finding out the hard way that it wasn't.

I received this check and want to know how my name got on this list.

I received a letter today stating I have won 62,100.00
and a check for 2990.00 made out to me.I called the number and I was told to deposit the money in my account and wait untill the check clears and then get a money gram for said amount and send the moneygram to a person in Houston Texas,then I am suppose to call the same number again and give them the confirmation number then they release my check minus the 2990.00,to UPS for immediate delivery.My question is, How can this be a scam if it isn't costing me any money?
And why can't I just cash the check and keep the 2990.00?

Thanks
Derek P.

I received this and called the number on the letter. I told her I heard it was all a fraud/scam and she started arguing with me saying how do you know this is a scam. I let her know I called up the bank the check was issued from and the company who wrote out the check (who let me know it was a scam). She ended up saying "FINE, I will just void your check!!!" Very rude! This probably wont help, but I just saw your website and thought I would share. Thanks.

I received a check from the Bonanza 2000 the other day and was skeptical about the whole thing. I remembered reading in a newspaper article about a lady who had received a check and called the number. She contacted the local sheriffs dept and come to find out it was a scam. Like they always say if its to good to be true it probably is. Why would you have to pay if you win money? YOU SHOULDN'T

My wife is always filling out surveys & entering sweepstakes, lotteries, etc. online. My wife recieved a letter from Prudential Security Inc. informing her she was one of the 17 winners of the North American Sweepstakes lottery for $5,468,880. her share was $250,780. There was a cashiers check inclosed for $3,845.65 they needed $3,200 sent back for the processing fee. She spoke to someone named Lisa, who explained where & how to send the $. $1,600 was sent to Marsha Tucker via money gram & $1,600 to Ken Smith via money gram. Our bank cashed this check & called the verification # on the check & said it was good. We should have checked into this before it was too late because I had my suspicions. We were already broke & needing $ with our 3rd child on the way & me just returning to work & my wife being laid off from her job. We thought maybe this was the miracle we had been praying for, it sounded so real & I think it would have fooled anyone. I read about these scams about an hour after the $ was sent but it was too late they had picked up the money grams. I contacted the FBI, Attorney General & the local police & they all informed us that it is a scam & the check will come back on us & we will be responsible for the paying the bank back the $. We do not know what we will do. We will probally lose our home because the mortage is late & this puts us further in debt. I hope these people are caught & these Son of Bitches rot in hell for preying on poor down on their luck victims like us. May God bless those of us that have been victims of this crime.

I also received this letter and I called the number I did as told went to the bank and deposited still skeptical I asked the bank to make sure it was real they said that it is. My bank says that it is cleared but I have not sent the money to Lisa Welker of canada and will not after reading this. Should have found this website first. They told me that I won because of applying for credit cards or for doing sweepstakes online (I do those alot). They also said they need me to be in a commercial with the other 17 winners in Sept so that they can air it here in the states and be legitimate. I have family that lives in Austrailia so it could have happened. My check also came from US Bank and the Software Solutions Unltd. So maybe it won't clear that bank but I still have the money there So I won't be in trouble. PLEASE BEWARE AND MAKE SURE THE MONEY CLEARS BEFORE YOU TAKE IT OUT.
