Complaint Review: Heritage Lottery Company - The National Lottery
Heritage Lottery Company - The National Lottery3140 Sheridan Drive STE 2 Amherst, New York U.S.A.
Heritage Lottery Company - The National Lottery LOTTERY WINNER, DEPOSIT COMPANY CHECK AND SEND $4,975 FOR INSURANCE TO THEM Amherst New York
The letter told him he was "randomly" selected through a computer ballot system. The check amount is an advance for processing and insurance fees which will be deducted from the total winnings amount. After they receive the "processing fees" money the remaining winnings amount will be paid.
The letter also told him to contact MARTIN SIMMONS at 514-570-4849 for further clarification and instructions. My father did call and a man answered who had no idea what was going on. After my father asked the man numerous questions like: Is this a business? Where is this business located? What is the purpose of this letter? etc, the man told him to deposit the check, wait for it to clear and then mail them a check for $4,975. My father definitely knew this was a scam and hung up on the guy.
Don't fall for this. It is unfortunate that scams like this exist and people waste their time doing this crap.
