Hi, I recieved a check in the mail that looked real and legitimate in the amount of $4875.00 on Friday, October 24, 2008. I looked at the check and thought to myself that it looks real and I even held it up in the air and said O.k.

I took the check to the bank and deposited it on Friday afternoon. The bank said the check will take up to 7 days to clear. Well on Saturday, I showed the letter to my sister and I started telling her that I have a funny feeling that something is not right. I got my lap top computer out and typed Universal Rewards & Trust in the google box and guess what? The first search "Ripoff" Please do not attempt to cash but I already took the check to the bank. I got my phone and called the bank but they are closed until tomorrow morning to put a stop on the check.

Right now I am scared and do not know what to do; it is 11:00 pm at night. Can anyone arrest these people for lying and ripping people off!

I called the number on the letter and a foriegn man maybe haiti culture answered the phone which seems like a cellular phone number and I heard like an echo in the background. He ask me where did I want the cashier check to be sent and I gave him my job address; I am really upset and scared. I have had chest pains since founding out that this is not real and is a scandal.

The man told me to send $2875.00 to the government for taxes. I proceed to tell him if I won look like I should pay the taxes myself to IRS and no to them; that is what made me decide to look into it. He told me that a Brenda Joyce is the reciever for the company of the winnings and the green and white form I send is a western union form and what to put on it. I kept the information that he gave me.

These people needs to in prison for a long, long time for ripping off people. Please help me!

No way.

AUTHOR: Auburn Guy - (U.S.A.)

There is no help for you. You foolishly put a bogus check into your account BEFORE bothering to check it out. Consider yourself fortunate if the only thing your bank does to you is to charge fees once the check bounces. Many people have wound up in prison for bank fraud after depositing those checks.
