this letter was endorsed by Bein Eporto Director,
I was totally shocked to see such kind of letter where I am very conservative giving my details to any store or outlets or any institutions. I dont know how these people get my details accurately. I came to a conclusion that this is afraud when I realized
1)that every check has the address of the bank account where it is held or issued from.
2)I received check worth of 3800$ where I won $38000 or if they deduct $3800 from my the total I must receive the check of $34,200.
3) I have surfed the Internet fro 2 days to find out the bank detials printed on check. The name of the bank on the check was PEOPLE'S BANK Connecticut, but there was no bank in CT with this name. there was only PEOPLE'S UNITED BANK.
4)I tried calling the agents but no one responded for more than 15 days. The VM on that phone was no good english, sounds unprofessional.
Please donot entertain anykind of such checks and become fools when you redeem them.
