On August 27, 2009 I received a Letter with no Addressee on it, postmarked from Canada. The Letter enclosed was from a company named EURONET WORLDWIDE in Cerritos, CA, which is in fact a legit company. The letter read:

We are please to inform you that you are on e of the lucky winners in the second category of GOLDEN CASINO GROUP. A Compensation Draw also known as US LOTTO. Entry MP-249-Y14 was attached to your name and matched the fist two lucky numbers: 19-22-36-5+17. Hence making me a winner! and approved for a lump sum of $63,000.00 payable to me by Certified Guaranteed Check.

With this letter was enclosed a very real check for $2.376.60, which was sent so that I will pay the Tax Clearance and Handling fees mandatory to satisfy official laws and income tax protocols, as mandated by the United States government gamin regulations. But I would have to contact my Claim agent for more details, before depositing the check into my bank. The information for the agent was Jay Omar at 604-719-5915, which is a # in Canada, from a company named FIDO SOLUTIONS INC.

Ok so this sounds so good right? Well as I did some searching online to check out the companies I noticed it made no sense that the letter is from a company in California with a phone # from Canada and the check was being sent from a bank in Texas (City Bank) from a company named ALL-STATE DISTRIBUTORS which is Fence and Supply Co. I leave it to you to agree or disagree with me that this has SCAM written all over it, and I am being smart to keep myself from trying to see if it is real. If anyone does have any more of these stories, do report them and let other know about Fido and others doing this kinds of Scams.

Of COURSE it's a scam....

AUTHOR: ReactorCore - (Canada)

This is a variation on the ''overpayment by check scam''.

Someone sends you a ''check''. Note how it's UNDER $5000. This is to stop red flags going up at the bank, who will hold any amount $5000 or greater. Trust me, that check is not real. Do you even remember entering any kind of sweepstakes or lottery with that kind of payout? Probably not.

You're asked to send back an amount, whatever it is to cover ''taxes''. A legitimate lottery of this type is NOT AUTHORIZED TO COLLECT TAXES IN THE NAME OF THE GOVERNMENT. That's for the tax department to do directly once the company/entity running the sweepstakes or lottery submits the proper, authorized paperwork regarding your winnings to the appropriate government entity.

A LEGITIMATE ''LOTTERY'' OR ''SWEEPSTAKES'' WILL NEVER REQUIRE YOU TO ''PAY'' TO COLLECT YOUR WINNINGS. It's illegal.

I'll bet that you'll be asked to render payment VIA WESTERN UNION TYPE SERVICE ONLY if you contact that "representative", which is done to get around USPS fraud statutes, and that you have also been told to keep your ''winnings'' HUSH HUSH. This is a HUGE tip off.

In the end, you are left with a WORTHLESS piece of paper that will not only pay the scammer, but leave you in big trouble with the bank, as they will demand, once the ''check'' (which is a forgery) doesn't clear after 7 - 14 days, and you will have to pay them back the entire amount PLUS any/all fees associated with hanging the bad paper on them.

The 604 area code exchange is Greater Vancouver, Canada, which is an area now known to be rife with gang activity of all types that has exploded in a few short years, from pot grow ops to open gang warfare with people getting their asses popped off in the street in drive by and execution style gangland hits.

Fido Solutions is also a real company in Canada, being one of the arms of the Fido cellular carrier service. Fido will not have anything to do with this obvious scam, the scammers are just using their name to make their rip off seem legit, so don't be pointing fingers at Fido unnecessarily.
