ING DIRECT111 GORDON BAKER ROAD TORONTO,, Ontario Canada
ING DIRECT FALSE LOTTERY WINNER TORONTO, Ontario Canada
My husband recieved a letter claiming he had won second category in a annual sweepstakes drawing, suppossedly winning $450,000.00. A check for $4500.00 was also enclosed! All we had to do was deposit the check and send a money gram for the taxes in the sum of $2,850.00 and then we would recieve the rest of the cash. It also stated to contact our assigned claims agent for furthur instructions, we did and he reassured us that this diffinatly was not a rip off or a hoax and that it was illegal to send out a check like the one we received in the mail!!!
So it all sounds good right? NOT! The first red flag to us, was, how often do receive something for nothing!! And even though we knew there is no way this can be true, I know a few people that would fall for this hook, line, and sinker! Then what would happen when the check bounced and they would be out the $2,850.00 for taxes.
We believe these people should be caught and dealt with legally before they take advantage of more unsuspecting gulable people.
I hope the people that are doing this reads all the reports i have and are real proud of yourselves, and you sleep well at night! Just remember someone else might be doing the very same thing to your grandparents, siblings, or maybe your own kids.
