I received a letter saying I won 85,000 dollars in the bonanza 2000 australian lottery. What should I do?


2006-06-04 10:38:24 -
I have recieved a letter and a check from " Bonanza 2000 " saying that I won a lottery . Can you help me whit this ? Is this for real ? What would happen if I deposited or cashed this check ?


2006-06-04 03:06:23 -
MICHELLE, THEY PUT A STOP PAYMENT ON MY CHECK. DUE TO A PERSON SUPPOSEDLY TRYING TO CASH IN ON SOMEONE ELSES "WINNINGS". DONT DO IT!!!!!


2006-06-04 00:40:43 -
I received a check similar to everyone else. Mine says "Swiss Lott" and says the check is fromUnited States Steel Corp which is apparently a real corp. I don't understand how one person here actually put their check in the bank. I would like to know what happened.

I would expect the check would eventually bounce and that meanwhile you would have western unioned the money out. Or are they finding ways to launder money from legit companies via supposed winners? How does this work?

I received a letter today from British International Lotto with a check enclosed for $1990.00 but the check is from LGM Escrow Services. To me it doesn't feel right because I know that I have never entered any lottery. The letter states A tax and clearance fee of $1990.00 has been financed with the enclosed check, kindly deposit or cash the check to pay for your tax and clearance fee.I would receive a toal of $63010.00 minus $1990.00 for the tax. To call my agent in the name of Richard Lakewood of Equity Financial Company, Subsidiary of British Lotto Corp., 48 Melwood Ave Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada B3H 1A1. Tel: 1-902-412-2803. Scam or what?


2006-06-03 21:24:26 -
I would like to thank all of the post on this bonanza 2000 Australian Lottery Scam. My wife just recieved the very same letter and check in the ammount of $2,995.00 dollars US. the other day and being straped for cash, I questioned it myself. After doing a few searches on parts of the letter came across this Discussion.. Now the check and letter has been turned into mulch... Thank you all so much and My heartfelt thoughts to those who have fallen for this Scam... Thanks again
