I ve recieved a letter from Australian Lotto where was saying that I won 400 000 USD. Then there was a letter from the Access Bank Plc., Nigeria, where they asked me to provide them with the scan of my ID or driving license and transfer 350 Euro through Western Union to Nigeria. Is it scam?

Hey Everyone almost got caught with a scam from Euro Fortune Finance , They sent me a check worth 2,940.30 and told me that the check was to pay taxes and other fees. they wanted me to call the # on the check to register the check and then deposit it into my ACCOUNT AND WAIT 2 DAYS SO IT COULD CLEAR and then I should give Megan Green a call at 1-902-412-1495 from Euro Fortune Finance. I called to register the check I ask the guy what company was this he couldn't even give me the correct company name the companys name on th check was Essential Productions, LLC in MT Kisco NY, the check also had JP Morgan Chase on it the branch in Newark, DE so i gave them a call and they told me the check was Bogus, Hey let's all give this megan green a call and let her know that we are not going for this, and the other BUM Essential Productions, LLC it seems that there all in this together Essential productions LLC # on the check was 1-519-992-1640. HEY I HOPE I PROVIDED ALL OF YOU GUYS WITH ENOUGH INFORMATION NOT TO GET SCAMMED BY THESE PEOPLE. HEY LETS ALL BE SAFE OUT THERE.

SINCERELY

Mr. Rivers
