adding on...

I called phone buster again I wanted to know if they have caught any one. They have with the help of law inforcement all over the world. Thousands of crooks all over the world. Most of the addesses might be in Canada but did anyone ever think of where the money ended up? Mostly in the hands of Mafia, drug dealers, child pornographers.You might send it to a place in Canada but if you call western union (or however you send it) where was it picked up? Did you call and ask? Sometimes it ends up in tel aviv, it can end up anyware. One guy phoned and 15 minutes after he left western union someone walked into the same location he walked out of and picked it up(I think he was in the states) And the phone number might be from a fido call centre all that means is someone has a cellphone(which is always always obtained illigaly). They cant stop it like any other crime it is always evolving. They take down 556 people in one bust and more appear. The addresses when they go ends up being a mcdonalds or something else never connected. If you get this letter tell your friends and family. Post on sites like this and report it. Dont give youre money to the crooks. Lets stop them. And they are often using real accounts all of the time stolen like anything else connected with these types of scams.

I just received a similar letter...also from Deltec, but my contacts name was Daniel Wilson. The number given to call is in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, evidently a cellphone. The envelope was plain, no return address, even no postmark!!! Had a Canadian stamp, though. I was ready to deposit this check, which as others have said looks real (drawn on University Federal Credit Union, Austin, Texas) until I stumbled on this site. I live in Phoenix, AZ, so will be contacting the police and the Canadian RCMP that was mentioned here. This has got to stop!!! I am a single parent, and had spent that money 50x over in my head, thankfully!!! I am so glad for this site, kept me from making a huge mistake. I had doubts about the letter from the beginning, but had just about convinced myself it was legit. The "deadline" to claim my winnings is 3-9...guess I'll be missing that. Thanks again so much, you're helping a lot of people. :)

My girlfriend received the same letter from Chemstar Corporation(s) in Georgia, with a check drawn on Bank of Northern Georgia in Alpharetta, GA, in the amount of $2920.00. It states she has won $46,500 also and when she and I called the number listed on the letter separately, we got the same spiel -- deposit the check and call us tomorrow. Being my usual suspicious, cynical self -- about these kind of things anyway -- I googled the company name and wound up here.

I am now convinced it is a scam. However, my question is if the check is counterfeit and no good, and if you cash it you're liable for the funds with your bank, how are they making money off you???

Has anyone cashed it and called them back? Do they ask for your bank account info or SSN? Have people had their accounts wiped out? Maybe I didn't read enough of the posts to see, but I'm curious as to how this scam "scams" you out of money. Please reply and enlighten me. Thanks

They will ask you to wire a portion of the money back to them to cover some obscure tax or expense so they can process your winnings and send you the big check. Then when that $2920 check is returned you will be out the money.

:cry: Have I been scammed? I recieved a letter and a check from Winners Concept Inc 100309 Villa Ave NW Edmonton, AB T5N 3T8 Sponsor: Lotto, Digest Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. The check was drawn from LaSalle Bank. I looked them up and contacted them, I gave them the account information on the check and they told me it was an actual account. So I deposited the check. It took a few days to clear my bank. With my bank, even personal checks take some time to clear because they wait to recieve the funds before depositing it into my account. The check couldnt have come at a better time because I had just lost my job and my mortgage was due and a whole bunch of other bills. When the check cleared I got myself paid up to date so that I could finally sleep at night. I have been trying to contact the lady listed Susan Finch 604-723-2736 for over a week now and all I ever get is her voicemail. I left my name and number but that was it. If this is a scam what do I do, I dont have the money to replace, I havent even got a new job yet? :cry:

Hi, just found this site and boy am I thankful. I received a letter and check for $2996.90 from Mega 2000 Imperial Random Draws. The check was from a Pool and Spa company out of California. i didn't feel right about this, but my husband said deposit it and see if it clears. He went and deposited the check and i got on the internet and found all these post for this same scam. Different names on checks< different banks<different processing agents< etc> but same scam> i will go to my bank tomorrow and have them stop the check> do i need to close my account and open a new one....will they be able to track my checking account information. We never called the number of a Gladys Brown of Express Financial Group at 780-604-3915...just deposited check, but won't spend money. My husband thought we could scam the scammer, but I didn't think that would work either and find that I am right. I am in south GA...who should I contact other than the bank? i am sure there are more in my area who are falling for this. Thanks for your help.:O)

Sometimes the Attorney General's office is good about making a press release if there are a lot of victims in thier state, so you might want to contact them.

Hi, we just got a letter from Mega 2000 Imperial Random Draws with a check for 2,996.90. It says the usual stuff and is drawn off First Tennessee Bank from a company named K&L Trailer Sales and Leasing INC.

We looked up the company on the check and my wife will be calling them to report this tomorrow. She will also call the bank and ask them if they want the check for any investigations they might be doing.
She also plans on calling the State Attorney General office in WA and the US Postal Service for mail fraud.

Should we bother our local police dept? I'm sure they probably wouldn't care much about it.

Any other tips on how we can help the authorities catch these people?

Thanks

I went to report to the Sheriff's office and they told me that because I didn't actually get taken then they couldn't file a report. You are reporting to the correct authorities, I would also report to the FTC and http://www.phonebusters.com. The latter is a group out of Canada infestigating this scam, which is suspected some these scams are coming out of.
Warm Regards,
KR

Unfortunately, they are still going strong. Luckily I opened my letter too late so decided to check them out on the internet and found this sight. My check is from Chemstar for............... oooh, guess how much? $2920.00 :)
I'm glad I found out before going any further.

Thanks all

Unfortunately many of these scammers are in Nigeria and arrests there are few and far between. Your local police can't really do much about it at the moment, but I would let them know anyways. They more complaints they recieve, the more likely it is that they will eventually take action.
