I received a letter stating I won $250,000 from a Consumer Promotion Draw organized for customers of Wal-Mart, Home Depot, etc and a check for $4,965.00 to cover the Canadian Taxes on the winnings. I have to cash the check and moneygram $3,959.55 to tax agent, Lionila Deens in Halifax,Canada, and then I will receive my winnings by Courier in the form of a certified check. There will be around $1000 left over from this check. Is this for real? Should I cash this check and send them their tax money. they are not asking for any of MY money. The check is drawn on the Bank of New York (Delaware) which is a big banking system. The company name on the check is LI Insurance Company of America, 4333 Edgewood Road NE, PO Box 3183, Cedar Rapids, IA 52406. I just want to know what to do, if I should go through the trouble of cashing it, etc.

#1 Consumer Comment

Scam but not the companies listed...

AUTHOR: Striderq - (U.S.A.)

Yes this is a scam. However not done by any of the companies listed. They had their names used because they are well known and it's an attempt to get you to believe that you won. You deposit the check, forward the money, the check is returned as a fraud and then you're out the money you sent and possibly your account for depositing a fraudulant check. Please don't try this at home.

One other quick suggestion:

AUTHOR: Ken - (U.S.A.)

Do NOT listen to Maria...she's probably the one that sent you the bogus check!

Think about it....if you have to cash a check, then turn around and send money back to someone.....

RIP OFF

AUTHOR: Christiana - (U.S.A.)

Throw it away. It is a total scam. You will have to pay the bank back the $4,965.00 because it will be a bad check.
