I received a letter from PCH stating that I was the 3rd place winner of record and here is a check for $5,889.00 for "outstanding fees that have not been covered by PCH directly". After some research (cuz I know I couldn't be that lucky), I found out it is a scam. I only found out by calling B of A and verifying the account number. They will not verify funds, but they will tell you if the account number you are calling on is valid. So here is all the info I can give. I wish we could upload files, I have the letter and check scanned.

This is all the information on the letter that I received. I received it on August 11th, 2008. It is dated August 4th 2008. It is post dated August 8th, 2008. The stamp on the envelope says Canada. No other info is on the envelope.

I haven't made the phone call yet, but I will and will add that to this report tomorrow. I hope this is enough to save at least 1 unsuspecting person before it is too late.

I sent an email to Lawrence Tractor Co., explaining to them my experience with this scam, and a very nice gentleman, Richard Nunes, who is the Chief Financial Officer of Lawrence Tractor Co. called me to thank me for letting him know what was going on. He had gotten an additional 9 calls over the last couple of days from people all over the U.S. Of the ten of us, one fell for the scam and cashed the check. LTC was charged, and then had the charge reversed. Now, how does that happen with a bogus account number? Shame on Bank of America. Anyway, police in Handford and the surrounging areas have been notified, but to what avail? What can actually come of this? It is scary how people can come up with such deviant plans and still stay under the radar. I am still working on this, so more updates to come.
