My Dad received a letter on November 10, 2008 from World Wealth Distribution office in Australia. He was leary about it and wondering why someone sent him a letter for a $25, 000 grant application. Knowing how big a sleuth I am, he asked me to check them out on the computer. I am a Rip off report luver so I checked them out up here first and knew it was a scam before I saw information online.
First off all, why would someone out of the blue, send you a letter saying you're eligible for a loan but you have to pay ten dollars with a credit card or money order to get the $ 25, 0000? That's crazy right there and I would've thrown it in the trash and contacted them until they told me how they got my name, took me off of their list for the rest of their lives and never contact me again and suing would be in the conversation as well.
Anyway, there is no legit address it is a post office box. Clue # 1 Then it has no letterhead at all. My Dad's name is underlined everytime its mentioned. The letter basically states that he is eligible for the Cash Grant of $25,000 and is awaiting assessment. Also records indicate that my dad which is underlined has not yet prepared for their application and of course the grant amount is underlined each time as well. Then they say millions of dollars are awarded in free Government and foundation grants to people just like you.
They say that the grants is awaiting. (Right?!) But you have to send them a money order or credit card which they have a form for you to put your credit card number and expire date. They typed expiry date. Also a place to put your 3 digit or 4 digit code on the back of the card which is usually a security code. They are from Australia and they have sent my Dad two letters this one is for Grants and the other he received is from the same company but it was from Amsterdam. They are fooling so many people and its a shame that they do things like this! Rip offs big time!
They have another address they want you to mail the credit card info too and its
P.O. Box 4805 Robina Town Centre QLD 4230 Australia
They have a fax number as well that I have provided Rip off with. There is no number to contact them. Please let everyone know what is going on if any of yall have received this type of letter. Publisher's Clearing house is the only company I trust and I have filled out forms for them before. But if I didn't fill out one and I received one I'm going to be funny about it. Check logos and do background checks, check Rip-off report and the Better Business Bureau. ALWAYS. the truth wil come out.
PEACE AND BLESSINGS to you. Thank you Rip off Report for all that you do
