This scam has many victims . . . the people who get the letters and the companies that get their information or logos stolen and used in these scams.

Do you have a website? Have you posted anything on there that your logo and company name has been stolen and is being used by scammers?

I received one as well. My guard came up when I noticed the stamp on the envelope was Canada 93, my letter was from Tower Processing Cener in St. Thomas Virgin Islands which stated I was a winner of their "monthly Global Draw held in Dublin, Ireland and that I needed to call Susan Edwards, an accredited agent of United Kingdom Random Lotto AND my check was from Cantech Industries, Inc. in Johnson City, Tennessee AND the bank it was drawn on was Sun Trust Bank in Nashville, N.A. or Sevierville, TN. I immediately wondered why there were so many different locations being used, and none of them more than once in this simple mailing? The check looks great. Watermark and all. I did not call anyone, yet, other than the number in the letter. I got some men with heavy accents who kept telling me "please hold on a moment" after I told them I was calling about a letter I received. Then Mr. Williamson instructed me to deposit the check and hurry. He wondered why I hadn't yet. He said "as soon as you deposit it, call us and we can get your funds released after you follow our instructions." I said, "Why can't you go ahead and give me those instructions now? He said he could not, and actually it would be Sharon Howard who I would have to speak with. She was the only one with clearance to release my funds. The whole time, I was never asked my name, my check amount, vendor # on the check, nor my reference number. I realized then that this must have been a mass mailing. Mr. Williamson was disgusted I was asking so many questions and keeping him on the phone so long.

Anyway, I have copies of my letter, check and envelope to help assist anyone out there who is investigating this or who needs more documentation for this case that I can email.

I, too, am glad I found this forum before I deposited it like my husband wanted me to. Even if I had deposited it, I was not going to send them any money.

What happens if someone takes this check to a check cashing place and gets the cash? What if someone turns this check over for payment of some kind on an account? Has anyone called these people and let them know they received a check, but in order for them to send the fees, the check originators would have to put a stop payment on the check and wire transfer the funds instead? What kind of possible excuse could they give to not wire transfer the funds? (other than the account is a fraud and they have no money.)

Please feel free to contact me (by using the PM or email links below) if you are working on a case against these or any related people.

I received a letter stating that I was the winner of $46,500.00 USD as the winner of the North American Utilities draw selected through a computer ballot system drawn from thousands of telephone numbers and utilitiy bills. Along with the letter came a check for $3,200.00 and a phone number to call. I was to contact Mr. Anthony Owens or Mrs. Sylvia Watts at 1-306-351-2764. I spoke with "Mr. Owens" sho assured me this was legit and was told to deposit the check and call back when the check cleared. Well, the check DOES NOT CLEAR!... DO NOT DEPOSIT THE CHECK!!!. Thankfully, I did some research before depositing the check and found out it is bogus. After several days, "Mr. Owens" called me back and told me the check cleared on his end and that I was supposed to wire $2,390.00 to a Ms. Rose Turney in Montreal to cover taxes and other fees.
I told him I knew it was a fraud and he then told me to go f... myself along with some other choice words. I have called back several times to hassle him and he still answers his phone, which is kind of fun. Anyway, the number I was told to call is in British Columbia, the address to wire the money is in Quebec, the address on the letter is in Nova Scotia and the phone number is from Ontario!!
Remember, you NEVER have to pay anything to claim a legitimate lottery winning. In addition, if you are an American citizen, you CAN NOT win a Canadien lottery unless you go to Canada and buy a ticket.

Just received check yesterday from Public Relations. Drafted on Tampa Postal Federal Credit Union. I have called the bank, they stated it is fraudulant and the FBI has been made aware. The letter lists Consumer Care Reward and selected from Residential/Industrial Utilities Consumer Compensation. Phone number is valid. Do not be fooled! Warn your family and friends!

I received a similar letter and check for $4500 saying I need to contact my assigned claims agent for further instructions. They want me to deposit the check and send a money gram for $2980 to a lady in Halifax Nova Scotia for taxes on the winnings of $450,000. Out of curiosity I deposited the check and it has shown as cleared the next day but I have contacted the bank and expect it to bounce. It was from Veridian Group, a division of Citi Financial Services. I called Citi and they have never heard of them nor can I find them anywhere on the web. I would like to get a hold of these people... :evil:

I just received an email from a television show who is looking for Lottery Scam Victims to speak out. You would have to show your face and give your name, but this could really help a LOT of people! Every time that we get the word out there in the media there is another person who learns about these scams and then they do not become a victim.
