Don't Fall For the Big " Euro Lotto Prize Scam"

A caller says you won a big lottery prize but you must send money before you can collect or send you a check to cash to pay the tax clearance fee.

It's fraud and you will lose your money! AND IF YOU CASH THE CHECK YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED, FOR FRAUD!
***Please contact the Federal Trade commision to report these "SCAMS"
Contact the FTC: www.ftc.gov or 1-877-FTC-HELP.

Legitimate lottery and sweepstakes administrators never charge fees to deliver your prize. If you send money, you will never get it back.

FRAUD: RECOGNIZE IT. REPORT IT. STOP IT.

*******ALERT********ALERT*********ALERT********ALERT

LotteryCanada does not hold drawings or award lottery prizes. Illegal scam artists claiming to be affiliated with LotteryCanada are circulating letters claiming to award large values in prize money. Fraudulent checks are also being circulated with these letters. THIS IS A SCAM! Do not send them any money or personal information. !

WARNING****WARNING***WARNING****

**DON'T CASH THOSE CHECKS** FROM EURO LOTTO CERTIFICATE OF AWARD**** Fraudulent check *** IS PART OF A CANADIAN SPAM*****

I received the letter on Feb. 19th and the letter stated, I have to respond by March 3rd to receive my winning. I received a letter from a Reginald Fontaine Prize Director of Euro Lotto enclosed with a (real looking) check in the amount of $1,996.73 drawn from Wachovia Maitland, Florida, from a CRONIN CONSTRUCTION CORP. 950 EXPLORER COVE ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL 32701-7516 877-794-7688, that was on the check. I called the number at the button of the letter, I was told to cash THE CHECK AND WIRE $1,850.00 to the North American Agent to pay taxes on $69,000.00. I had won.

I contacted Mary Edwards of PEOPLES CHOICE FINANICAL MANAGEMENT GROUP, SUBSIDARY OF THE EURO TRUST CORPORATION, 10765 24TH AVE., EDMONTON AB T6J 5P9 CANADA; TELEPHONE 416-820-3574 as stated on the letter. Every time I called the above number someone did answer the phone and told me once I cash the check to call them back and they would send me a cashiers check IN THE ANOUNT 69,000.00 minus 3,450.00 (5% sponsor commission fee.) I even asked the guy are you sure this isn't a scam? He replied, no you have one the drawing, as part of the EUROPEAN INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY PROGRAMS YOU WERE SELECTED THROUGH A BALLOT SYSTEM DRAWN OF 8 MILLION NAMES. YOU HAVE THE EMERGED WINNING TICKETCONGRADULATIONS! I asked, what winning ticket, I never played any Euro Lotto. He said to won OK! I replied ok! What do I need to do now? He stated, cash the check and call us back when you have cashed it. I replied, ok.

I never cashed the check; I started doing research and found this site. People out there, Listen--- "It's a DAMM SCAM"-- Don't buy into this "Shit" - you will get yourself into allot of trouble. Like cashing a "Fraudulent check".

Always remember if it sounds to good to be true, it is! I conducted my own investigation and called the company in which the checked was drawn:
CRONIN CONSTRUCTION CORP
950 EXPLORER COVE
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FL 32701-7516 877-794-7688.

However, the telephone number on the check was 877-794-7688 is a voice mail stating that you have reached CRONIN CONSTRUCTION AND THE VOICE MAILBOX WAS FULL, COULD NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE. I went a little bit deeper and found the real phone number to: CRONIN CONSTRUCTION, Cronin Construction Corp "REAL" TELEPHONE NUMBER IS: 1-407-339-5120
Location:
950 Explorer Cove
Altamonte Springs, FL 32701-7516
United States
407-339-5120
Total Employees:
45
Industry:
Construction Services
Senior Contact:
Richard Cronin, Owner

Business Description:
Grading Contractors

I contacted them and a recording came on the phone, stating that people are receiving checks with there company name on them, which are all "Fraudulent Checks" they are not writing them. It is part of a "CANADIAN SCAM" and the check will bounce if you try to cash it. If you have received a check from there company, “Please do not cash it, return it to:
CRONIN Construction Corp.
1-407-339-5120
950 Explorer Cove
Altamonte Springs, FL 32701-7516
United States

If anyone out has received a check from CRONIN Construction Corp call PLEASE CALL:
1-407-339-5120 and listen to the recording, they have instructions as to what to do. I will be sending the letter along with the "FAKE" check the "LOOK REAL" to CRONIN Construction Corp to further their case, to prosecute those "IN SAIN-SCAM CRIMINAL ARTIST”

**Remember**, if you cash those checks you have committed "FRAUD", and will be punished! Nothing happen to them, they are across the border in Canada. If you are in the US, you will be prosecuted for cashing a fraudulent check. The heartache and pains will be on you! “SO DON’T’ CASH THOSE CHECKS.” I was told, that the CANADIAN Authorities are working hard to prosecute these criminals.

I just received a letter today int he mail from EURO LOTTO and below it said "CERTIFICATE OF AWARD". iT HAD A DATE OF Feb. 14th but no year.The letter was signed by Reginald Fontaine. Also I received a check with it, looks legit. The amount of the check is for $1998.50 and it is from KUHLMAN CORPORATION and had a PO BOX #. I looked up Kuhlman Corporation and it is like a building or contract company. I tried to call them but just got an automated voice. Wonder if they know someone is using their company name to send out fake checks. I want to call these people private number and start talking to them like I am falling for it and then after keeping them on the phone for 5 minutes tell them the Feds have placed a recording of the call before I called. The sad thing is I'm sure someone will fall for this and get screwed. Anyway, this EURO LOTTO sent me an email several months ago stating I had won as similar to this time and I reported it to the LOTTO SCAM website.


2006-02-25 00:19:51 -
I wonder if the people writing these checks are aware where the money is going? I tried to call the Kuhlman corporation and got a full voicemail recording. Also if you look at the checks, mine anyway it has a p.o. box address and a 800 phone #. Its fishy.

I recieved a Euro Lotto certificate of award, with it a check for $1998.50. The check came from the Kuhlman Corporation and was signed by T. Schultz The check looks legit but I know it has to be a scam. They say the check is for a tax and clearence fee. I am going to take the check to my bank and see if they can trace it for me, and to see if its legit.

Thanks for everybody and this website

I to recieved a letter with a authenic check. I also was skeptic. Especially when they said to keep it confidential. So I looked up the bank on the top of the check and called them. They told me to call my local Police IMEDIATLY! These butholes are banking some cash. I wish we could find them, ONE: stop them from doing it to anyone else and TWO: SUE THE HECK OUT OF THEM. There are really people who need money and to do this to them is just WRONG! I just do not understand why it is so hard to catch them. If I can call and talk to them and they can give me the info, WHY CAN"T THE POLICE? SOMEBODY needs to catch these people.

I as well recieved this fraudulant letter today from the funky ass EuroLotto and it's a buch of BS. I contacted them spoke to a young lady who was totally confused about what I was speaking of plus she but me on hold and i could hear her and other speaking in the backgroud. 1 if this were a real company she would have placed me on hold and i would have heard nothing, but elevator music. 2 keep this info Confidential straight up I knew this was fraud. Ladies and Gentlemen: DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM IT COULD COMPLETLY RUIN YOUR LIFE IF YOU WERE TO CASH THIS CHECK. Contact the Bank on the check as well as the info you recieved in the mail. These Fools will be caught soon, and for all of us that do the right thing somthing better will come to us in THE FUTURE. STAY SAFE EVERY ONE FROM THESE ASSES

I work at a bank and I knew it was a scam when I saw it. Don't ever trust a check of this nature. Our people say if it is real they will contact you through a lawyer, international lotteries can't operate in the US, and no real check has a bank name with no address. To CJM, most of these scammers are Americans, they just use over-seas connections to make it sound good.
