Barnes Marketing Phony AWARD CLAIM NOTIFICATION Pickering, Ontario
*Consumer Comment: Glad I found this before I continued!
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!
