I received a check for 2998.55 from PTSC MTA RICK MANAGEMENT AUTHORITY, ONE GATEWAY PLAZA,MS99-21-2, Los Angeles, CA90012-2952.
I called the number and they want me to cash it and then send some guy by the name of Robert Reid
a money gram in the amount of 2827 dollars. Then get the confirmation number and call them back with it then they will send me a check for the amount of 85,000 dollars. Within 2 bussiness days.

From BONANZA 2000 AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL LOTTO
is this a fraud?


2006-06-09 11:34:52 -
i need information


2006-06-09 10:42:31 -
I also received a letter from Bonanza 2000 certifing that I had won. I also received a check in the amount of $2993. I was very cautious about this, it just seem to good to be true. Thank goodness for the internet. I looked this information up and said it was a SCAM. This is not very nice, especially people like me that really need money to make ends meet. I hope you catch these people and put a stop to this before someone actually goes through with it.

Thank you

I recieved a letter today from Canada.. the contents was a letter..."Bonanza 2000 Australian International Lotto Certificate of Award.... Additionally I recieved a What appears to be a Legitimate check drawn on Bank Of America N.A Los Angeles Ca against a company account "PTSC MTA Risk Management Authority" for the amount of $2998.55.

The letter reads that I was a final winner for the amount of $85,500.00 and that this check was "an Assistance Check" which would enable me to pay the international fees to get that money.... out of the 85,500 $5,301.00 would be paid as the sponsers commission and I would recieve 80,199...\

Contact the agent in Winnapeg for further details....
At no point are they asking me to do anything but cash this check and submit slightly less than the amout of this check to their agent in order to recieve the 80k

I know that this has to be a scam, and refuse to call canada to get the final details..... Can some one please tell me what is the catch.... how do they get my money...i know this has to be the intent....

Thanks

O my God, I almost fell for it. My agent was also Jennifer Howard and I have been talking to her. She gave me the name and address of the person who I am suppose to send the money to. Some lady in Canada. And then I would get my package within 48 hours. I'm so glad I called the bank and they said the check had been returned. I still had not sent the money. God was definitely with me. I am going to cuss Jennifer out. For the lady who wants her number, email me a mizdjohnson@aol.com

Received a letter from Prudential Security Inc. stating I had won a prize of $250,780.00 USD from the NORTH AMERICAN SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY.

A cashier’s check in the amount of $3845.65 drawn on LaSalle Bank was enclosed.

Spoke with Kimberly at 416-848-1467. She informed me that I should take the check to a check casing store. Upon cashing the check, I was to go to Western Union and send two separate and equal payments of $1600.00 to the following people:

Maureen Woodland, 5568 Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto, Ont N6N7P1
Andrea Mill, 5578 Lawrence Avenue East, Toronto, Ont D2P3G3

Upon sending the lump sums, I was to call Kimberly back directly at 416-528-0359 with the two control numbers. Upon receiving the control numbers, my remaining prize of $194,780.00 would be sent via Federal Express within three to four business days.

After speaking with Kimberly, I called the phone number for LaSalle Bank on the check (888-416-9282) and was informed the check was valid by Jodi. I then called LaSalle Bank from a number I located on the internet (866-904-7222). I spoke with the Loss Prevention Department and was informed that the check was fraudulent and not to cash it.

The two addresses they gave in Canada are fictious. You can check the address through the Canadian Post Office (http://www.canadapost.ca/common/tools/pcl/bin/quick-e.asp).
With Western Union, all you need is the control number to get the money. The scam artist can pick the money up anywhere in the world.
Why would a company take their own money, give you a cashier's check so you can cash it and give it back to them? The bank will credit your account for the money and after you withdraw it, will tell you weeks later that the check was stolen/fraudulent and that you owe them the money back!


2006-06-08 21:23:40 -
well I called bank north where the checks supposedly came frrom and was told that they were counterfeit....fortunately my bank pulled the check out of my account so I dont have any horrendous fees to pay....I urge everyone else to do the same if you can....
