Oceanic Financial Group International Fianance Department, Ontario Can SWEEPSTAKES WINNER 55,000 DOLLARS GOT A "REAL" CHECK FOR $3975.00 (YEAH RIGHT!! ) WHO KNOWS, POSSIBLY ONTARIO, CANADA
Congratulations I won 55,000 part of a 1.1 million dollar sweepsatkes shared by 20 winners
They sent me a very realistic looking check for 3975.00. I am supposed to call them first,then deposit the check and send them a MONEY GRAM for 2,945.00 to pay for applicable government taxes. They recommend using WAL MART Stores.
I am not willing to try this as I have heard of scams like this forever, and most banks charge you for a deposited check that bounces. I am relatively sure that if I deposit this check it will bounce.
You would think someone could trace these phone numbers and stop these bogus letters from raising the hopes of many gullable people.
My representative Tiffany Moore at 1-905-598-2773 should be ashamed of herself. There was also a name of Jane Richard as promotional manager. It might as well say Mickey Mouse.
