Complaint Review: AMERICAN CASH AWARD COMPANY (BBB)
AMERICAN CASH AWARD COMPANY (BBB)United States Better Business Bureau Internet/ jamaica, Select State/Province United States of America
AMERICAN CASH AWARD COMPANY (BBB) James Williams & Mark Sharpe. Got a random call from a man in Jamaica claiming that I had won 2 million 8 hundred thousand dollars? Internet/ jamaica
Immediately i ask him, So whats the catch? And he replies that there is none, and of course i ask him how he got my number, and he said its because i shop a walmart often and spend over $20 at a time. By the way, he couldnt tell me what my name was, what state I was in or how my number even got thrown into the mix. I have never been asked for my phone number at walmart! Such Crap!!
So anyways, he gave my two long numbers, one said to be a check # and another said to be a car#. and he made it very clear that i had to have them absolutely correct as he made me repeat them several times. Mind you, when i repeated one number wrong he seemed to be very upset and demanding about getting it correct!!! Ok so i wrote the numbers down and repeated them back and he said i have them right, so he then proceeded to ask me if i had transportation and told me to hurry and get my car keys and purse, then get to the nearest Wal-Mart to put $399.99 on a money Pak card or money order all while he stayed on the line! I Said this is such crap, i told him how the hell are you telling me that im a millionaire and i won all this money but first i have to pay you money for you to stamp the damn check and get it to me hassle free?!!! OMG i couldnt believe what i was hearing!
So, never was i ever gonna drive to any Wal-mart to send him any money. but i kept on asking him questions so i could see what this scam company was and how i could help expose them to others. I asked him to email me a copy of any documentation I could have, to read for myself to see what he was trying to explain to me. I told him I had a hard time understanding him trough his accent, he seemed to be a little offended but agreed to send me an email. heres a little copy and paste from the email i received from him.

So as im talking to this so called, James Williams, i am on my computer googling the American cash award company and came across sooooooo many rip off reports. He was still on the phone with me at the time so i let him have it! I asked him if he realized that the scam company he was trying to run was all over the internet....he said it was all a lie, and that these reports were from people who were trying to scam these checks from their rightful winners. So many excuses, mind you he kept calling me sweetheart, and i had to tell him that sweetheart shit dont work with me!! He continued to deny all my accusations, and kept trying to convince me that i had really won something. Some people are so desperate! I hung up on him and he has called me 4 time since then within in an hour and a half time period with 1 voicemail.
Hey being a millionaire sounds real good, but i aint stupid and i know when somethings to good to be true! I hope these selfish, cold hearted, shameful people do not continue to get away with this!! They Need to be caught and pay for what they have done! Thank goodness I didnt lose any money over this but I know that many people have, and I hope that no one else does!! Hopefully this was helpful to someone & please share this with everyone you know so that we can put a stop to all of this!!
