ON JUNE 29TH I RECIEVED A CALL FROM MY SISTER STATING THAT I HADWON A CONTEST FOR $255,O69 DOLLARS. I SAID TO HER, "YA RIGHT..ITS A SCAM." SHE STATED.."NO MOM CALLED THE NUMBER BACK ACTING LIKE YOU AND CONFIRMED WITH READERS DIGEST. THEY SENT A CHECK FOR $4,631.72 FOR YOU TO DEPOSIT INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT!" THERE I WENT DRIVING TO MY MOTHERS HOUSE TRYING NOT TO GET TO EXCITED ABOUTTE NEWS.

WHEN I GOT THERE MY MOTHER SAYS SHE CONFIRMED THE CHECK INFORMATION WITH LADY NAMED LACI ADAMS AND WAS GIVEN A CONFIRMATION NUMBER SO I COULD GO TO THE BANK AND DEPOSIT THE CHECK. WHEN I GOT TO THE BANK, I TOLD THE TELLER I THINK I MIGHT HAVE WON SOME MONEY AND I NEED TOSEE IF THE CHECKWASAMOCK/FAKE CHECK. SHE TAKES THE CHECK FROM ME ANDCOMENTS "THERE JUST GETTING BETTER AND BETTER AT MAKING THESE THINGS" I TOOK IT AS FAKE.

SHE TRYS CALLING THE NUMBER ON THE LETTER FOR READERS DIGEST AND THE LACI ADAMS GIRL TO GET VOICE MAILS FOR BOTH AND STATES THATS 1 SIGN OF A SCAM. SHE THEN LOOKS UP THE BANK"SAFECO"ON THE INTERNET TO CALL THEM. THEY WERE A REAL BANK BUT THE TELLER CONTACTED SAID THE CHECK WAS A FRAUDULANT CHECK AND THAT THEY HAD RECIEVES A FEW OF THESES OUT OF CANADA.

MAN..WHEN I HAD TO TELL MY MOTHER THAT I HAD ALMOST BEEN SCAMMED..SHE WANTED TOCRY. SHE TOLD ME "BUT ANDREA, I TALKED TO THE LADY MYSELF AND SHE CONFIRMED THE WINNINGS." I HAD TO LET MY MOTHER KNOW THAT THE BANKS SPOKE AND IT WAS A SCAM. NOW IF I HAD AN ACTUAL OPEN ACCOUT AT THE RIME, I PROBEBLY WOULD HAVE DONE A DIRECT DEPOSIT AND BEEN SCREWED. BUT SINCE I HAD JUS CLOSED MY SCCOUNT 4 MONTHS PRIOR AND HAD TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE IN REGARDS TO THAT AS WELL....WELL IM SURE WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT WOULD HAVE PLAYED OUT!!
