After a successful completion of the third category draws of the British Lottl, Held in London England, Yeah right got the same crappy letter.the check was from a company named Baker Dist co. out of Jacksonville FL, The bank the check is from is Bank of America, Atlanta, dukalb county Georgia. the check is for 2,998.95 and i am to deposit it and send it to Canada to a Sandra Cole via money gram they want me to send 2,850.00 That leaves me with 148.95 to wire the money wow how lucky am i? Then I get the 90 Grand, the lady I spoke too Monica Edwards had a terrible accent could'nt understand a word she was saying so don't fall for this bull crap fellow Americans and let's see if we get this information out there to the Press so it stops. 20/20, 60 Minutes, Geraldo Live, A current affair, anyone?

Hey, I got cheated! Some people won nearly $500,000, others over $1,000,000! I only won $95,000 for a lottery I never entered. That's not fair!

Seriously, though, this is obviously a scam. But I wonder if the best way to stop it is to do what one person suggested--set up a new account, deposit the check, if it clears, don't send the money to the scammers, just keep it! What are they going to do--call the cops on themselves?

I'm here to write about the scam that the so-called United British Lotto has created. If you or anyone you know has received a letter in the mail from this FAKE entity, throw it away immediately along with the check enclosed! This is a scam and will only harm you and anyone else involved except the scammer. The origin of the letter comes from Canada, possibly Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At first I thought it was awesome to get a check in the mail for $3,000, but things started to get fishy when it stated in the letter that I signed up for some North American Sweepstakes, which I'm sure is also fake. The letter gets even more fishy when I was told to deposit or cash the check and then remit payment to some agent at the bottom of the letter to pay for some fees and taxes. A person who posted about this matter was right about something. If there was some kind of fee, taxes, and or commission, they would've just taken it out of the lump sum you supposedly won and given you a check for the rest. The thing that really makes this matter so fake is the check itself. The bank is legitimate as well as the company that the money is coming from. However, my instincts tell me that the company has not and will not approve of the check because that company has nothing to do with lotteries of any kind. Plus there may be security features on the check that do not appear and/or are not valid. Again, if you receive a letter and check from the fake entity in question, do not do what the letter tells you and do not cash the check! I would really hate to see anyone get hurt by this or the company that apparently wrote the check, because the check could be real and they would lose money, and some person in Canada would be getting that money instead of you.

I also got one of those letters in the mail from transglobe america lotto. saying if i cashed the check and send it back to them i would recive $68,000 dollars in the mail. If anybody out there gets a letter from these people do not cash the check, it"s a scam. Report it to the police right away. We need to capture these people and put them away for this crime cause it"s just not right playing on victums like they do. So people please beaware of this kind of scam. Cause i was one of them fools that fell for it. Yes i was liable for the check i cashed. thank god i had the money to cover it. I just don"t want anybody else to go through what i went through. To be honesty with everybody i was really scared. So please don"t fall for this scam. Deb

My grandma is a kind hearted lady that though about helping all her grandkids and great grandkids to end totally humiliated and broke. Now I ask from all of you to help me help my grandma.

I also today recieved a letter from UNITRD BRITISH LOTTO. With a check for $2998.27. I read it and I was happy because I could use the money. I did deposit it in to a savings account. I too called a LISA SPENCER. We talked and I asked questions. She told me it will take two or three days for the check to clear. The I need to send $2,850.00 to
Sheridan Gonzelez
2120 cornwallst
suit 403 Ottawa ontairo
canada
M4B 2R3

But then she said that I need to send the money by western union. I thought ok, but what got me was she said do not let them know that you won the lotto. Other wise they would tell the gonvernment. Then inturn they would tell the irs. So they would take out to many taxes. They work on commition. Well I hung up and I talked to my family. I asked what should I do. Well they said if the check clears why not send the money I would not loose anything, because I am sending there money right back to them. Well I could not stop thinking about this. Even my mom said it might be a scam. So I am glad that I decided to come on line and to see if I could find anything out. Well with what I have read I am glad I have not gone and sent the money out. So who do we contact. Who do we tell about this.

This was the United British Lotto I was suppose to received 95,000. minus 5%., of course I rush the bank today and deposited the check and after thinking about what I had done I got on the computer and to my suprise all these claims was out there with the same information I had as being a fraud.

Is it a scam too?

I just received a check from Brittish Lottery says I won $95k minus $4,750.00(5% Sponsor's commision).The check was for $2998.95. I was alittle suspicious when it said to cash it & save it for taxes & clearance fee. Then continued to say before I did anything to call my agent for the processing of my winnings. Then what made it look even worse to me is when they say to keep the winnings absolutely confidential. These people are horrible. At first glance it looked real. I am a single mom & struggling worse than ever, this is not funny to someone who desperatly needs it & I can not believe people would do this to scam people out of money. Especially to those who have nothing or are on a fixed income.I hope someon would catch these people & lock them up for a longgggg time!!!!!!!!!

I received a check mailed from Canada with no return address. Inside the envelope was a check for $2,998.95 drawn from a Baker in Jacksonville, Fla. a
division of Bank of America in Georgia.As was in other folks letters regarding the Third Catagory drawing,cashing the check, and then calling a number in Canada which is supposedly Apex Financial Management Group, a subsidary of United Trust Coropration in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The Special notice! paragraph stated that the winning be kept absolutely confidential. What lottery, Mega Bucks, etc is kept confidential? It is spread all over the news media. There are more clues that this is a scam, but I wanted to warn folks of a few. Don't even bother calling the number on the letter.
No, I did not call the number...too many red flags.

I too recieved a check and tried to call and also got a woman with a barely understandable accent telling me I needed to call back during business hours. It seems from reading all of these postings, they must have a FEW acct.s because the check I recieved has American Home Mortgage Servicing as the company who produced the check (which is very odd because I'm a mortgage closer and I don't know ANY of our affiliates that produce checks for lotto winners!)and M&T Bank as their bank. The check also says there's an artificial watermark on the reverse side, but when you hold it up to the light...nothing.

Dang it!! I was really looking forward to telling my boss to screw off! :) However, I figured like most everyone on here...too good to be true. HOWEVER, I was thinking about cashing the check and keeping the money, but then I thought no...not a good idea!!

Thanks for this site people!!!!!

I received a letter and check also dated on April 3 and yes, I thought it was real. So I contacted Donna Rogers of Apex Financial Management Group. The phone number that was left was 011-353-862211097. She told me to cash the check and after I cash it to call her back and she would tell me where to wire it. We tried to cash the check but had no success. The people at the Check Cashing place said that they needed more information about the Mortgage Co. that sent the check. That drew a red flag. We came home and contacted the Mortgage Co. They said that it was a scam. That these people are using an old account that was closed by the Mortgage Co. years ago. We then contacted Donna Rogers again, and told her that we cashed the check. You should have heard the happiness in her voice. So I asked her where to send the check and she started telling me to send it to a man name "Green Collar". As she was in mid-sentence, I cut her off and said "Quit lying Bitch", you know damn well that this is a scam. She tried to keep going along with the lie and telling me that it was legitimate. So I cussed her ass out, and then she hung up. Please be aware of this scam because you might get fooled too.
