GLOBAL FINANCIAL INC They made me believe it was REAL. Gloucester, Ontario
When I opened the letter the first thing I saw was the "Check" and I turned it upside down a few times and noticed that it actually did look REAL. I read through the letter that came with the check and I got really excited and started to believe that I had truly won 125,000.00.
I called "Alex Gandi" and the first thing I asked was "Is this thing real or are you guys just trying to play me?" He answered "I'm not here to play you. I am here to tell you that you won and to activate your check.
He asked me how to spell my name so I told him and about three more times I asked if it was scam and he kept telling me no.
When I got off the phone and had said that I would cash the check and call him back Wednesday I was very excited to get rich.
My roommate just wanted to check and make sure everything was ok with the thing but he couldn't find a website for "GLOBAL FINANCIAL INC." and that started to make us wonder if this was true.
I stared at my check for a little bit and then saw the bank USBC BANK listed at the top so I went to their website to try and get a hold of someone and ask them if it was a real check.
I couldn't get a hold of anyone at all so I stopped trying to figure out a way to see if it was a really check and I called "Alex" back and said "Can I talk to your supervisor?" He answered "No, they won't talk to you". I ask "Why?" He said "I think your just playing games. Do you want me to cancel your check or leave it active?" I told him yes I want him to leave it active and then he said "Then whats the problem?" I told him that my family was a little worried that this was a scam.
He yelled at me saying "I think your playing games. I am trying to give you money. I am shutting off the check. Goodbye"
Then he hung up on me.
I then called my mother in New York where it said the check had come from and asked about the letter and the check and she said it was a fake. That they try and send you a real check saying you won but there is no way you can get to the actual bank to see if it's real and they just want to take your money.
My husband say sorry to me and then ripped the check up and threw it away.
GLOBAL FINANCIAL INC. is a scam and the place needs to be shut down.
