Wow!  A check in the mail for $3,550.00.  All I have to do is call 1-888-262-1118 Ext. 202 to activate total winning of $150,000.00 - act now!  Uh, $2,880.00 will be deducted for taxes.

Pertinent Info:  Envelope is from Canada, Consumer Research Group Inc, but company name on check is Julian Venture Inc - same address for both - 60 East 42nd St, New York,  NY 10017.  Check is written on PNC Bank, Jeanette PA.  Routing # is 043301627. 

As with report to Ripoff from someone else who is also a "winner", routing # needs to be verified.  Looking PNC Bank, Jeanette PA, up on the computer, the routing number is different.  May call the bank today just out of curiosity. 

Little bells are going off:  If it seems too good to be true it probably is.  And I've never heard of having to "call" to activate a check.  I haven't called.

I'm not saying it isn't legitimate, I'm just very cautious at this time and would appreciate input.

It's a common scam, you are instructed to deposit it and send them cash

AUTHOR: Jim - (U.S.A.)

Usualy by westtern Union (Untracable) then your deposited "check" bounces and YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY IT BACK.(Often including closing the account) so YOU'RE F****D.
