On 8/4/08 I received a letter mailed from Canada from GOLDEN FINANCIAL TRUST with a $4,680.00 check enclosed. (the check was supposedly from a North Carolina Company - using RBC Centura Bank - signed by Woodrow Wilson)

According to the letter, I had won $250,000 from a "CONSUMER PROMOTION DRAW" organized for all the major stores in U.S.A. and CANADA e.g. (4 stores I regularly shop at)

Your name was attached to an ENTRY SLIP etc. . .
You are therefore advised to contact your claims agent LINDA BROWN 1-778-863-9055 for further instructions on how to claim your big winnings.

Enclosed is a check of US $4,680.00, this check is for the payment of the (NON RESIDENTS) CANADIAN TAX .. that way you don't need to put up your money upfront.
This tax is payable to your tax agent by MONEYGRAM as stated below.
Tax Agent: Jessica Vince, 3324 19th Avenue, Saint John NB, Canada E5B 4K9
Tax Amount: $3,985 us dollars.


BEWARE - there are a LOT of similar letters out there. It is incredibly easy to print a bogus check. I googled the name of the company printed on the check I received. Found the company's web site-with the same address as on the header of my check. First thing I saw was a CONSUMER ADVISORY NOTICE -re:sweepstake letters - Fraudlent claim,the check is not valid,etc..

The way this SCAM works is - a person deposits or cashes the check - sends the moneygram to canada - "keeps" the $695 extra - BUT a week or so later get notice from their bank that the $4,680 is charged back to you marked COUNTEFIET/FRAUD plus fees.
The money sent to canada is long gone!

I took my check, letter and the envelope it came in to my local post office to day to be forwarded to the postal inspector. Sending fraudulent checks through the mail is mail fraud and a criminal offense.
