Wow! I was almost had! It makes you think about just how vulnerable we all are to all sorts of terrorism. I cashed the check before thinking about it. Something felt wrong about those instructions. I decided to buy the check back from my bank. We ran the check and found out it was in invalid account. I have gone to as many places possible now and have had them post the "winner certificate" and a copy of the check. The worst thing we could do is be silent! It is time to fight back!

I received a letter and check for $2,998.45 in the mail form Australian International Lotto. I called Randy Edwards of Kingsway Financiers tel. number 780-604-5207. He told me to put the check in my bank and wait 3 days then withdraw the money and send it to Donna Mills in canada through Money Gram. That sounded kinda funny to me that this lady would just happen to have the say last name as me. He told me not to send it wester-union cuz it would take to long to get to Donna, and if they asked why i was sending such a big amount of money to her i was to say that he in my aunt and she has health problems. I am then suppost call him back with the receipt number. I am then to receave my $80,000.00 through u.p.s. within 1 to 2 days. I was not to tell anyone that i won a lotto. If i wouldn't have went online and looked it up i would have never known. I would have been scamed just like alot of other people. I would just like to thank you for careing about all the other people that are out there that got this same letter. Also these people need to be stoped, if there is anyway that i can help i would love to!

I just received a check in the mail from Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation. It says I won 250000 from the NORTH-AMERICA SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on January 30, 2006. I called the number and the gentleman told me to deposit the check in my bank and call back for further instructions. Before I did anything I looked up the bank on the internet. Then I looked up OLGC. Then I lookede up NORTH-AMERICA SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY and came across this website. I knew it was too good to be true.

I also received a check from that Bonanza 2000 from Sydney, Australia for the amount of 2,998.54. This is the second check that I received. I already know that this is a scam but I still called the phone no. that was listed on the letter. I was able to talked to somebody and she asked me my name, address and my age. When she found out my age she said that I don't sound as my age and I was calling in behalf of somebody else. I already asked her if their office is legitimate or a scam. She hang-up while I was still talking. I called back again but I only heard their voicemail. I know from the very start that this is a scam. Two weeks before I received this check, somebody called me from Quebec, Canada asking for my address for verification. I was asking why she needed it and she said she is sending a document to me. They already showed this scam on TV. To the people who received this kind of letter, don't ever send them the money they are asking because it is a BIG SCAM. Most of the people they targeted are the senior citizen. Once they get your money, they're gone.

Responding to you,
marilyn. i see that the numbers of my winnings and the amount o nthe checks is exactly similair ot yours but the whole corporation is different. I belive its one big organization workign together. The people runing it are extremely brilliant and i have no problem threatning them wiht their life, if they want to do shit bout it i will put a big ole cap right in their faggot ass






I just received a letter from Irish Random Lotto informing me that I'd just won $85,500 USD (3rd category of 17 winners from 1,453,500 USD). An assistance check of $2,996.64 drawn on a company named Contour-Arc, Inc. (which upon researching is legitimate and even appears on our list of businesses through the Sec. of State as legitimate) was enclosed to finance the international clearance fees of $2,828.00. I was told to contact my claim agent, Lisa Spencer of Kingsway Financiers in Belfast Ireland for the "activation & authorization" of my check. Please advise if this is a scam as I'm supposed to respond by May 29, 2006.

hi i recieived a letter from bonanza 2000 2 weeks ago, when i opened up the leter and found a check for 2996 dollards, i was shaking a bit and wanted to go cash it in, as i read on in the letter enclosed i found that i had actually won 85,000. Becuase of my excitment and hopefulness of hopefully catching a huge break in life at the time, i got right on it and called my supposid angent named donna edwards of a supposid company kingsway financiers. When talking to the lady she told me it was 100% legit and i was the second last person to claim my winnings. I was feelingood right about then. I then was told to send the check i received to her so she can pay the clearance fee to get the money out of the bank. I figured it would be an easy task os i went along with it and went on over to western union. While their the lady on the phone told me that i should not tell western union that i am doing this for a lottory becuase they might try and steal it, the truthis its fraud and the western union along with AARP is trying to stop this whole business. When i talked to her again she had informed me that my check would come on thursday may 25th between the hours of 4pm and 5pm. Iwaited anxiously with my photo id like the lady told me and looked for the u.p.s truck. This was when it got real weird. At 4 15 a ups truck rode past my house slowly and discreet. I was thinking sure maybe it has another delivery to get on time. And soon enough it went past again at 4 45. What are the chances of it same day same time. What they were really doing from my heart is buying time for the check i sent them to clear. You see this is how these peopel work. They tell u to make a money gram wiht the check they provided you and when we sign the back of it and send it,I become responsible for it. These people bounce the proffessionally done counterfeit check and steal from me 3000$. The organixation is extremely well thought and planned out and needs to be stopped. I am on my way ot the police station and then ews stations ot make it known. everybody needs to taki it to news and police so thay can stopped, i advise the next person who gets one ot not follow through and email me becuase of my brilliant setup plan. I have an idea to track the clal and become a fraud person my self by disguisng me and playing wiht my so called agent, oncee we figure out where she is located and where i am to send the money to, we can get police to that location before the money comes becuase that is where they are until they run off with it. If anyone ever wants to join me and my organiziton, Fraudfaggotsgoingdown inc. I would be very appreciative, it shattered my siblings hearts and stople my money and i will do everything in my will and power to stop it once and for all.

My mom received a letter from OLGC--Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corportation on behalf of the North-American Sweepstakes Lottery along with a check for $4,975.00. It claimed she had won a lottery of $100,000. She was to deposit the check and then contact Steve Anderson at 1-416-836-2658.

I began checking on-line. OLGC is a legitimate Company based in Ontario Canada and they do have lotteries, but tis is a scam. In the description on their website, OLGC states that any prizes won by Non-residents of Ontario must be claimed in person and that they do not notify winners by mail.

My parents are retired and not so savy as to the working of the electronic age of scams. Everything about the check and letter looks legit....UNTIL YOU DIG INTO THE COMPANY INFO.

The phone # and mailing address of OLGC didn't match up with listings on their web page and the lottery numbers listed on the letter didn't match any winning numbers of the OLGC database.
My heart goes out to all those taken by this horrible scam and I hope that people will do research before cashing these checks. They can ruin families in as little as a week.

Has any one ever had to go do jail time. Because of these scams made by some one elts. The person even signs these cheecks. My Bank just cashed a cashiers cheeck from the Euro International Sweepstake Lottery. Now I'm scared. My 3 KIDS, Husband, and my self were heart broken badly. We were really looking forward to investing some money for our own Home Business. Something that would just take off. Well we were ripped off and now more in the hole finacially. We even purchased a new'er Van. This is sick. These people need to be stopped. Those nasty scams. How can one be so cruel. (Lisa)!!!!!! Help Meeeeeeeeee.
