I receive a letter about euro lotto cerificate of award. i'm to contact this lady in canda but the check is from a place here in the US in Tennessee on a that states bank. The company has no idea of what is going on. The company name is"Direct General Finanicial Service, Inc." There is a insurance company by that name with the address is very similar with slight diffenece in the name of the street, but has the same street address.

i would like to inform reginald fontaine and donna rogers and group that you are just a bunch of people who want to steal peoples money by sending them checks to deposit into their accounts and wire transfer the money to individuals.if you guys are trying to scam people by stealing money then honestly you shall face it and pay for it God punishes serverly.your lousy check made me pay my bank money for being overdrawn and that my attorney and fbi are investigating you.donna rogers even had the nerve to tell me that their accounts department issued out a wrong check those are all lies that i don't believe.

I got one of these "British Lotto" checks myself. My husband and I are both unemployed right now. We should have known this was a scam but I am always entering sweepstakes and stupid me thought it was real. Even my bank thought it was for real. So, they cashed it. Now I am in the hole at the tune of $1600, and it really bites. Boy did I learn my lesson. PLEASE, if you get a check for United British Lotto, DON'T CASH IT!!!!!!! BIG FAT SCAM!!!!!!!!!!


2006-03-30 23:52:47 -
Yes I to received a check and letter, they told me oh the check was stopped? You took to long to answer, you can pay the taxes yourself and we will release the check to you. yeah now this does sound like a scam.

Just thought I would ad that I too recieved a letter from Euro Lotto saying I won $95,000 (minus the taxes and the 4% lotto comission). Yeah I was dreaming of what I could do with that money but then my brain kicked in and told me it was too good to be true so it probably was. Not too mention that fact that I don't play the lottery in the USA why would I play it internationally. Anyway I did some research the next day and had things prove it could be real but then when the facts came down to it and I called the bank listed on the check they told me it was a fraud and had me fax them the information so they could pass it on to the FBI. I just hope that anyone who is hurting for money and praying for a break doesn't get fooled by this. It's nothing more than a scam I guess the bank will cash the check but it gets returned the following day, which is unfortuantely the day you mailed the check to pay for the taxes, leaving you responsible to cover not only the check you wrote but also the bouced check fee at your bank.

I received a letter by US Postal from the "United British Lotto" claiming I had won a large amount of money, also in this letter they sent a check that they call a tax clearence fee. It says it is from the third category draws of "Euro Lotto" held in London, England.
It stated I was one of the winners of the "British International Lottery".
Does anyone know any information on this company?
Thanks

i just received a letter and check from euro lotto. the description of the letter is just like mine except the names and phone numbers. the business on teh check is for BBBY Management Corporation in union New Jersey. The check is from Chase Bank in Wilmington Deleware. The check appears real and its issued by Chase,so i thought it must be real. I'm glad i checked it out on first...i was skeptical though and was just going to cash it, not deposit it.

I received today in the mail a check for $1,995.50 and a letter saying that I was one of the winner of Eurolotto held at Geneva Switzerland and I would receive $95,000 minus $4,750.
The letter instructed me to contact my agent :KENNETH FRANCIS at this number 1-450-675-0472 from a comapny called Excel Financial Management group of QC, Canada.

The check is from:
DIRECT GENERAL FINANCIAL SERVICES, INC
1281 Murfreesboro Road
Nashville, TN 37217

The number that appears on the check is from First Tennessee Bank

The first suspect I had was because I did not enroll in any European International lottery so whoever got my address and name was a scam...and the common sense..it is too good to be true...and here I am warning others not to cash or deposit..just report the crime..and inform as many people as you can


2006-03-28 18:02:37 -
is this check real? what kind of scam is this?


2006-03-28 08:56:44 -
I paid a Euro Lotto check into my account before I researched and found out it was fake. I have let my bank know, I have been reading that people in my situation are worried about being arrested. Is this true?
