Barnes Marketing, Lloyd Formerly Promotion Manager, sent "Final Notice" of winning a Consumer Rewards Program ticket 3749065 for lump sumpayout  of US $8,000.  Check for $986.88 was enclosed. Instructions were to contact Claims Agent HAYLEY BROWN at their phone number for instructions how to claim.  Letter said "per your state regulations, you will be required to pay a tax and processing fee before the lump sum winning can be sent to you."  The check was drawn on CITIZENS BANK MASSACHUSETTS. Company name on check was Barnes Marketing, Trenton Place, Walton, MA  02451.  Date the account was opened was 06-93.  I had NOT entered any "Program" and had received a different "cross border scam" with a much larger check in it previously.  My bank followed up and discovered the check was not a vlid check so I destroyed that letter and check.  This is the SECOND cross-border incident with different company name and bank but otherwise similar.  I suspected the first one so had my bank investigate.  This one I KNEW had to be a fraud so I checked it out on Ripoff Report.  Certainly glad I did!

Glad I found this before I continued!

AUTHOR: Justis Bias - (United States of America)

I recieved a letter claiming i won $9,700. This is not the first time but may be a seperate entity. Last time i was informed of the fraud upon trying to cash the enclosed check. This time I immediatly saught for online details about the company and here it is. This check was for $989.56 to pay supposed  release fees. The check is very believable through "Fifth Third Bank" which is a real bank. The check and letter both note the sender as "Providence inc instead of Barnes Marketing but the adress on the check is the same as the one in this report. The adress on the letter is 7209 Hasselley Rd. Victoria BC    V9M  5P8. I believe that is in CANADA. The number (19057811607) to reach "Claim Agent -RILEY MARTINS" was not "assigned." The letter was singed "sincerely" by "Promotion Manager - HENRY BARRONE." I can't imagine the perprtrators would be stupid enough to give accurate names though. I am just happy "RIPOFF REPORT" exists and hope comsumers acknowledge it as they would the Better Business Bureau.
