I received a letter from Union Trust stating that they were pleased to inform me that I was one of the third category winnenrs in the Mega Millions Draw held on April 21st, 2007. My receipt serial number is 387-45014AL which I supposedly received when I purchased a sweepstakes ticket.drawiing the number 22-87-76-44-24. I NEVER PURCHASED A SWEEPSTAKES TICKET.
The letter goes on to say that I am entitled to the sum of US $250,000.00 payable by band draft, or certified cheque and will be delivered tome by special courier company. Enclosed is a check of US3,800.00 which has been deducted from my winnings, this money is to be used to pay the Tax Clearance Fees
I am suppose to send $2,885.00 US dollars to: Sharon Thomas, 406-5836 Broad Street, Mission, BC Canada via western union or moneygram. It does advise me to contact my assigned claims agent Betty Taylor as soon as I received this notification at 1-778-862-8558 to begin the claims process.
I contacted Almo Corporation who let me know this was a scam and not to cash the check, they also let me listen to their message about how someone stold their company idenity. I also contacted Citizens Bank in Philadelphia, PA to verify funds and they told me there were zero dollars in that account. I called Betty Taylor and told her I cashed the check and she advised me to send the funds to Sharon Thomas at the address listed on the letter.
Once I went to western union I was to call her back and she would give me a tracking number so that I could track the funds if I do not receive them by Thursday which would be March 27, 2007.
I called her back to get the tracking number and she wanted to know what the reference number was and I made up one and gave it to her, she then stated to call her back in a half hour. I will not be callinig her back.
This is fraud and anyone who does not investigate is crazy, anyone who does not file a complaint against this company or these people are crazy as they are liars and cheats.
