I recieved A check for $2998.50, a Bank Of America Check. It looked like a real check. There was a letter enclosed with it. From UNITED BRITISH LOTTO - CERTIFICATE OF AWARD. This check was to be deposited or cashed and then I was to contact my agent: DAVID ROGERS OF APEX FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP, SUBSIDIARY OF UNITED TRUST CORP, 145 Southland Dr. SE Suite 204 Edmonton, AB.T5S 2T1 TEL. 780 604-5974.
I knew not to be stupid enough to deposit the check into an account, but I was excited, curious & sceptical all in one. I new I could get the fastet answer on if the check was real or not by simply taking it to the bank it was cut from and cashing it.
Unfortunatly I found out quickly that the bank account was closed. So I called David. He did answer to my suprise. I told him what happend. David said," that should not have happend the check is good that account is not closed. I advised him that I do not have an account and the bank teller wrote on the check Account Closed... David said he is arranging for another check to be sent. I have yet to see this other check. It has been two weeks since I last talked to him. Today I decided to research this lotto program. My first attempt searching APEX FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT GROUP. I found Thi International Lottery Scams Discussion site. Thank you.... I am releaved. And I can stop waiting on a check that will not be comming!!! I am lucky, I did not loose anything but sleep. Look-out to All For thi Scam And NEVER DEPOSIT A CHECK FOR ANYONE into your account and give the person cash. Even for family!!! Be financially safe...

I just received one of these checks tonight ($4,900)...........sure looks real. I have read several of these recent comments but I have yet to see Smiths Aerospace Componets - Mountaintop ,Pa 108707 as the people who disburse the funds . My letter came from Canada but the check is U.S. funds from JPMorgan Chase Bank , N. A. Syracuse , N.Y.. I think I will take this to my bank and have them investigate it for me. Take Care all.

If you were the ones that deposited the check and your bank gave you money from it, you are responsible for that money. The bank gives you a loan in a sense from that check. Unfortuantely the bank can't tell right away if the account is closed until later. I fell for it and now I owe my account $500. My bank said that I am responsible for that money. What blew me away was that my bank is a federal credit union and they don't have any system at that time to know if the check is fraud at the moment you go to the teller I don't trust nothing anymore unless it is a business I know.

i also just received a ceritificate of award from the united british lotto. it stated that i had just won $95,000. with an subtraction of $4,750. for sponsor's commission. Enclosed was a check of $2,979. This is supposed to pay for the taxes which is $2,850. and the remainder is for the western union fee. Now, i did deposit the check which has yet to be cleared. Also i'm repeatedly making phone calls guestioning this lotto & my winnings, how'd you get my name & address, (yada, yada, yada). I was told that once the money is received back to my agent {Summer Goodman 8456, that within a day or two. I would receive a visit from Summer herself at my home with my money. That raised another eyebrow, besides the fact that i'm only paying $2,850. for taxes on $95,000. I don't make half of that let alone a quarter of it a year and i'm paying higher taxes than that...ummmm.
please note: when i called Summer to tell her that the check was cleared..the other party which whom I spoke to 1st, sounded so overwhelmed asking me atleast 3 times "the check was cleared". seeming suprised. keep in mind, the check is not clear and still pending. I just wanted to hear their reaction and to know what was the next step they'd issue which was GO TO WESTERN UNION.....what do i do now?

They don't want the number of my acct.or A credit card.They did say they was gonna put A check in the mail and for me to endorse it and send it right back in the mail.This company is called ALL NORTH AMERICAN SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY.Is this A scam.


2006-05-06 23:17:28 - Does anyone really want help
We were scammed many months ago. We have posted many posts trying to warn people not to cash these counterfeit checks. For the most part, people just come on here to post the question...what should I do?...If you people who ask that question would read ALL these posts, then you would know what to do and not fall victim. We tried to help by posting and did not make any real difference.
READ ALL POSTS BEFORE ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS.
Remember this....if it is a real win, you will receive a certified letter and not told to keep it quiet or to send money to anywhere in Canada.

Received a check from Apex Financial Management Group....with claims of getting $95K in American money. However, I was advised not to tell anyone about the winning. A check for $2995.00 accompanied the letter and I was advised to deposit the check and then pay Apex Financial Management Group....$2850.00. Please advise.
