Complaint Review: Fidelity Finance Company / Lend A Hand Foundation, Inc.
Fidelity Finance Company / Lend A Hand Foundation, Inc.7411 Gordon Rd / 8105 Capwell Dr. Ottawa Ontario / Oakland,, California U.S.A.
Fidelity Finance Company Sent Fraudulant Check Sent Fraudulant check from Lend A Hand Foundation, Inc., Claiming Loterry Winnings and Requesting Wire Transfer of 4985.00 Ottawa Ontario / Oakland, California
I checked, and Lend A Hand Foundation, Inc., is a real non-profit company with a web site that requests donations. Lend A Hand Foundation, Inc.'s real non-profit company's address is: 8105 Capwell Drive, Ste. B, Oakland, CA 94621. Noted that the zip codes are different from the real organization, vs. the one printed on the check.
The check amount was for $5985 and they wanted me to wire funds of $4985 to the 'Canadian Tax Office' to Tax agent: Nancy Norris, 203 Woodlake St., Ottawa Ontario, M8H 5H2 Canada. A contact person is David Frances at 1-778-317-6395. The letter is signed by H.I. Grundy.
This wire transfer amount is to cover taxes on my supposed winnings. It appears others have also received this same letter with very real appearing check, but the difference is the "Pay to Tax Agent" listed on the letter that the wire transfer is supposed to be sent to.
Does anyone have any information on this fraudulent appearing scam?
