Hi guys I'm here to ask if any of you guys ever heard of Global Processing Group from 4500 scott st, P.O Box 1010 St thomas. Virgin Islands. 0080-1890?

I recieved a letter in my mailbox stating that I am a winner of a August 2006 sweepstakes drawing for $50,000 USD. It stated that I was selected though a computer ballot system dran from readers digest, publishers clearing house, computer games , sweepstakes data base, from australia, new zealand, europe, north and south america, south africa and asia as a international promotions program that is conducted monthly.

Enclosed in the letter was a check for $2962.30 USD that I deposited already to my account because in the letter it saids that I must deposit it in my bank account only to pay for taxes and international fees and that the remaining balance of the $50,000 USD price will be payed out to me upon the receipt of my processing and tax fees.

The letter also has a Claim number and a phone number and name of the claims agent I need to talk to once I recieve the letter can you guys tell me if this is legit or not based on what I just told you.

I got the exact same letter and check (same $) on Sat. and was searching for scam info. seems weird.
I was going to ask the bank. I called and a very vague
girl said "congratulations you are one of 27 winners"., "just deposit the check and call me right after..." When I began to ask questions she put me on a very long hold., and then the line was eventually disconnected. Too weird to be anything.?
Iwas thinking of calling Redears Digest,, Publishers, etc., to inquire about their award money distribution. What happened to you demon82 84???
Please let me know.
Joey

i also got the same letter. I just got off the phone with the lady who's name appears on the letter as Andrea Cohen. I did reverse search and the number is listed in halifax ns. I told the lady i would call her back since i did not have the check on hand and she needed some info from the check. The company says it's in the Virgin Islands but the number is in Nova Scotia. Sounds too wierd. Anyone with more info please reply i would like to have more info on them, and shut them down!!

The name on the bottom of my letter was Dr. Jennifer White and the Claims agent is Larry Clark. I did call and was told that I had won $50,000 and as soon as I deposited the check into my account I needed to call them back so that they could tell me where to send the fees to.

Yup Dr. Jennifer White is at the bottom, but my agent is Andrea Cohen. These people are probably holed up somewhere sitting around phone lines waiting for people to call so they can scam them. I'm still not sure about this, but i am going to have some fun with this. You should call them tomorrow and tell them that you deposited the check, and ask them what the next step is. I am going to do the same. Let's see where this leads. We should all do this, there are a couple of us who have received this letter. But one thing is certain, no one should cash these checks. And if some one does let me know what happens. lol

Thats so funny, I got the same letter yesterday and I called today and deposited the check. My ladys name was Vanessa Moore. Thats just crazy that other people have gotten the same letter. Well, I guess If the funds are there, I'll just use them to pay some bills. Let me know how it goes...

You spend that money, you will owe the bank when that check is returned counterfeit. Bad idea
