SBC Investment Group LLC "Steve Nobel" Shoppers Lottery Final Winning Notification Scam. Ottawa Ontario
I am writting the rip off report becasue recently I recieved a letter in the mail from Steve Nobil who claims to be the Producations Manager for SBE Investment Group LLC. The letter stated that I was one of the lucky winners of a Shoppers Lottery that was held on June 20, 2009.
Therfore I was entitiled to a sum of $120,000 USD. The letter stated that my name and information had been drawn from a random computer ballot drawing from selected retail stores such as Walmart, Sears, and K-mart.
Encolsed with this letter was a check for $4,700 which was for me to pay all applicable Government/bond fees of $2,980. I needed to pay these fees first before I was able to recieve my remaining winnings of $115,300.
The letter informed me not to cash the check until I had gotten in touch with my Claim Agent who's name was Ashely White. Being excited because I thought I just won a huge amount of money I called the number listed and spoke with Steve Nobil himself. He informed me that I won the lottery and I should go and deposit the check into my bank account immediatly and then call him back and that was it.
I say our convesation lasted around 2 mins the most and during our conversation I felt that something was not right. Fortunately I did a little research online and googgled the address on the letter and found instant information that labled this letter as a ripoff.
If anyone recieves this letter in the mail please do not attemet to cash the check it is a rip off and to good to be true. I am on of the fortuate people who did not cash the check.
