Enclosed was a check for $4,875USD which we at first thought was "fishy".
We called the US Bank in Havre, MT and found the account numbers to match an active account. I reside in Florida so I asked the Havre MT lady if this was a "good check" she could not give me the balance of the account at US Bank only said to take it to a US Bank branch and cash it. We have no US Banks in Florida so we deposited the check into our personal checking account with SunTrust Bank in Florida on Monday October 28th, 2008 and by Tuesday October 29th at 9:30 AM the check had cleared and my husband withdrew the money.
We followed directions now on the letter thinking this is NOT a scam because our bank just handed us over $4700.00 cash! We were off to Walmart to send a moneygram to the Government tax agent, Mr. Mark Howard 45 East Court Drive, Ottawa, Canada K1R5B5 in the amount of $2,875.00 plus $57.50 to Walmart to send it. The money was received at 10:57EST to Mark Howard (before we even made it home to call Frank Brown)
We were told we now had to pay $1250.00 MORE for UPS to transport our winning remainder of $121,000.00 by UPS for insurance purposes. 1% of the
winning check. This was actually when I was alerted to this Frank Brown's scheme. I was instructed to send the 1% money to a Martha Hoffman 5 Queen Drive Way, Toronto, Canada M5H2M9
We were informed that we had won this because we were shoppers of CVS and Walgreen's.
Went back to Walmart shopping Friday, the 31st of October Happy Halloween, my debit card did not work at the cashier so I paid cash went over to get a balance inquiry from the ATM machine -- out popped
Available balance (minus $4699.87) I about fainted. We have been great banking customers at SunTrust bank for over 5 years, never having a negative balance-- now this!
I filed a IC3 report with the FBI and now have to go talk to my bank manager Monday morning.
