Received a group of lottery numbers from Haplin Data services A while ago. These where a copy of the orginal letter.A few calls to the local lottery commission later and found out what they ment by the word "lodge". The Brief call gave me the impresson the lottery Commission was not to happy about the whole thing. There where a few lotteries from Austrailia that did payout small, but if any major prizes nevre showde up.

I got the same letter as someone got.
Is that correct or wrong?


Super Charge International Lotto Ripoff Fraudulent Lotto Bogus Lottery Amsterdam International

Company
Super Charge International Lotto
Address:
5564 Endoven Strasse S.L .
Amsterdam Other
Netherlands
Phone Number:
780-604-9896
Fax:


I received a letter from "Super Charge International Lotto" that stated I had won the lottery in the 3rd prize category. There was also a $1998.00 check enclosed that was supposed to be to "help pay" my taxes.

The address that appears on the letter is from Amsterdam, Netherlands. But when you contact them at their phone number and you verify the information that is on the letter that they sent you, they say that the "winnings" are coming out of CANADA. Also, while there was not a return address on the envelope, the postal stamp was from Canada.

The phone number on the check is NOT the phone number of the check agency. I called them at their correct number and they informed me that this is a SCAM! The check is written as if it is going through "Ruesch International" which IS a legitimate check place, however, the phone number listed on the check that is supposed to be theirs is NOT!

Strangely enough, both phone numbers: the one on the check 204-887-6243 AND the one on the letter 780-604-9896 are both through service provider "Fido Solutions" One out of Winnepeg and the other out of Edmonton.

When I called the 780 phone number, they had me verify the information that was on the letter which includes a Ticket number (in black) AND a File number (in blue). Once she verified that and the check numberl on the top of the check, she gave me directions on how to go about cashing it, getting a moneygram, calling her back (Julie Taylor) with the receipt number and then I would be able to have my "winnings" in one of 2 ways: Direct deposit (which she said takes a couple of hours) OR UPS certified check (which takes 2-3 days).

After all of that, she asked if I had any questions and I told her I did: First of all I wanted to know HOW I could have won. She then asked if I had a credit card? I said "No" Then she said well if you have used a credit card OR enter information online OR fill out surveys that I was "automatically entered" {WHAT?! Give me a break!}

Secondly, I wanted to know why the phone number on the check was invalid...she said that it was NOT. Then I said, YES it is, I called Reucsh at their CORRECT number 202-408-1200 and they informed me that this was a SCAM. She then said that she would have to send my file over to her "supervisor" and they would have to call me back.

Yeah, right! Give me a break! I didn't fall off of the turnip truck yesterday you know!

{I have scanned copies of all of this, so you will be receiving them via email!}

I got the same letter as she got.

I received a letter this morning from SUPER CHARGE INTERNATIONAL LOTTO saying that I had been approved for $120,000. Also included was a check for just under $2,000. saying that it was to help pay for taxes etc. I do not think that I entered a Netherlands lottery. What should I do know?


2007-04-26 13:41:43 -
I have just recieved a winning notification based out of the U.K for a lottery drawing by Dell and Mastercard. Can any one tell me if this is a scam and how to stop them from contacting me.

Peace and greetings.....recently, we have been the object of a miraculous if hope-filled series of e-mail messages, assuring us of having won an extraordinary amount of Brithis Pounds, which translate into an even more overwhelming amount of USC. At the last stages of the communication, we have been given three options for delivery of the cheque and other official sounding documentation. We are at a loss, for the amounts requested for any of the options, at this point would put us in the midst of economic hardship. Are any of these venues legitimate, and how can one know? Kindest regards, and grateful for your kind attention.....In The One. CAMA
