I received a letter from "Bonanza 2000- Australian International Lotto" claiming that I was selected as one of the winners. The check enclosed with the letter seems real. There is no small print or any other markings that could prove this check false.

Jeff, re jpmorgan bank out of NY.. Dont cash it. I deposited my check last week and thank God my bank put ahold on the check it came back counterfeit. My bank called the bank in NY and there is no such account. My bank closed my account because of this and they didn't pay any money out for this check. Everyone listen, get your bank to call the bank on the check before you deposit it. Everyone good luck.

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.
