i received a letter from allstate financial services in nova scotia cananda on august 15, 2009, informing me that i won 450,000.00 dollars in an international sweepstakes on june 15 2009.
enclosed with this letter was a check for 4,800 dollars to cover taxes. the check was drawn from wells fargo bank in montana. the check looked so real and it was possible that i might have won something.
i called jim morris and he told me to deposit the check and then wire kevin ashley in london england 3,750 dollars. I told him the check didn't clear and he asked me how much i could sent. No thinking it was a scam, i sent him 1,300 dollars of my own money on august 17, 2009
he told me that my check for 450,000 would arrive the next day which would have been august 18, 2009. the money never came and when i called him back to ask where my money was he said because i didn't send the whole 3,750 they would hold the money until i wired it to them.
he told me when the check for 4,800.00 dollars cleared to call him. unless to say the check never cleared and i'm out 1,300 dollars plus 92.00 dollars for the western union fee.
I filed a report with my local police department
