I recieved a check in the mail for $3, 989. A letter that came with it was stating that I had been the winner for their second quarter drawing of $100,000. (The letter had numerous mistakes.) The check definitly seems real. I called the number, (in Canada, I think) and contacted a Michelle Robinson.

After I called I was put on hold and then told to deposit the check which was for taxes and administrative fees, and then call back to find out how to pay taxes. So I went to my bank and asked them if they could tell me if it was real or not. They said they couldnt tell and to contact the bank listed on the check. So I took it home and thats what I did. The bank said theres no record of it and was very confused. This is definitly a scam and actually they had gotten my uncle about 3 year or so ago!! So if I didnt know better, I would have cashed it.

The letter was signed by someone named Rita Howell. they said they got my name from a random drawing thats was slected from publishers clearing house and internet games. This is extremely wrong and something needs to be done. Considering my son was just diagnosed with Autism and I stay at home for him, this is just cruel!

Rebuttal Statement from Shipco Transport Inc.

AUTHOR: Shipco Transport - (U.S.A.)

Shipco Transport Inc. has recently been made aware that its good corporate name has been used by a others under the name Shipco Financials and Shipco T. Inc. Shipco Transport Inc. has nothing to do with Shipco Financials or Shipco T. Inc. We believe that the fraud artists behind Shipco Financials/Shipco T. Inc. are using our company name to engage in fraudulent activities which will result in people being victimized. We have learned that the con artists have mailed documents which are alleged to be checks drawn on Shipco Transport Inc.'s account. Since our company is actively engaged in commerce and issues checks to hundreds of vendors on a daily basis. It is very possible that anyone could have taken a copy of one of our checks and modified for these wrongful activities. The checks are clearly frauds, but appear to be drawn on our bank accounts. The victim is promised more money by the temptation of dealing with the check enclosed in the solicitation. The promise is that by depositing the check, a "prize" of $100,000 will be paid. This activity is a scam and is designed to defraud anyone who falls victim to it. Shipco Transport Inc. is a transportation services business and does not conduct lotteries or games of chance.

Shipco Transport Inc. has notified the authorities about this fraud and has taken security measures to protect our company. If you or anyone you know have received any solicitation or communication whether in writing or by email which purports to offer you an opportunity to claim a prize from Shipco Financials/Shipco T. Inc. immediately contact the authorities in your area, such as the police, sheriff, US Postal Inspector, Secret Service or FBI.

Ok, I give.....what does your son being diagnosed with autism have to do with the fact that you received a bogus check in the mail? It doesnt make the scam any more wrong that it already is....it doesnt make you less scam-able or anything else.

A scam's a scam's a scam
