On Friday, June 13, 2008, I received a letter from Consumer Rewards Program Lottery stating that I had won $38,000. Enclosed was a check for $3,820.00. This, according to the letter, was to pay the "Luxury Tax" on my winnings. Not really trusting it, I took it to my bank and had them look at it. Banks are able to tell you if something is a scam or not. As suspected, it was a scam. The letter was from Star Financial Services in Ontario, Canada, and the check was from CoastHills Federal Credit Union in Lompoc, California!! Also, there was no phone number on the check to be able to contact the credit union, and the zip code for Lompoc only had 4 numbers instead of 5, as a normal zip code has. They wanted me to deposit this check in my bank account and call them back on Monday, after the check cleared. If I had really won, why wasn't the check for the full amount? Why do I have to call them back "after the check clears"? This is a big scam!! If you receive one of these letters and checks, DO NOT deposit it into your bank account!!! Take it straight to your bank and have them send it on to their Loss Control Department, who will then forward it on to the FBI. These people need to be stopped and the only way to stop them is by reporting them and educating the public on this scam. If I have stopped just one person from getting ripped off, it is worth it!! Please do your part if you receive this scam or any similar to it.
