I believe I am a victim of a lottery scam. I received a letter about a week and a half ago with a check for 3,600.00 enclosed. At the time I received it, I was in dire financial need as my husband had been laid off. I deposited the check as the letter asked me to do, but before I contacted my "agent", I spent about half of the money catching up on bills. After talking with the "agent", I realized that something wasn't right. However, the check looked very authentic, and I am on always on the internet applying for loans, entering contests, etc. My husband and I decided that the check had to be good since it had been over a week and no word from my bank, and that this individual was only trying to get me to send him a check that was really mine.

After reading messages on this board and checking some other scam websites, I am now realizing that this must be a lottery scam. What is the first step I should take? Should I contact my bank? Should I contact the FTC? Am I going to be charged with a crime for this? Will I have to pay this money back? I need advice ASAP! Thanks!

You can contact the better buisiness bureau at bbb.org and i would suggest calling the national fraud hotline at 1-800-876-7060. If the check bounces you are still responsible for any money that you have used or overdrawn on your bank account. I would definetly contact your bank to see what legal action can be taken against these people.

I just received a letter and a check from the same group for $3,625.00. The letter attached states that they have tried to contact me several times and I intially was supposed to ge $50,00.00 as a second prize but due to missing several deadlines I now only get to above mentioned total. I do not, nor have I ever, had any affiliation with anyone represented on this set of documents. I called the 1-888-862-6548 phone number listed on the letter to verify with and a automated voice comes on and says thank you and it hangs up on you. I am not going to cash the check because I do not trust the validity of what it states. They are very deceiving in nature. Has anyone been able to prove fraudulant intrest on their behalf?
