I recieved a letter in the mail on Friday, Sept 29th. the letter came with a $3,854 check and the letter stated that i had won a part of a 3.6 million dollar lottery and that was my share out of it. The check looked real it had the watermark and everything that a check should have, i went to the bank and deposited it into my bank account, because i really could use that money to pay off my credit bills. on the following monday i checked my bank account and the money had went through, I was Extremely excited and i went ahead and paid off $1500 to my credit bills and waited for that to go through. Today Oct. 5th 2006 I looked into my checking account online and i am now in debt $3,177.51. I really hope you can help me or PLEASE find someone that can. I WANT TO SUE THAT COMPANY FOR ALL THEY HAVE OR ATLEAST WHAT I CAN GET. Thank You
Michael

Did you wire any money back to the sender?

I am sorry to tell you that the check is fake and you are now a victim of a lottery scam.

Were you supposed to wire/transfer any portion of the check on to another person/company?
