I also received a 'Winning Final Notification' that I was one of 72 declared winners of the De-Lotto American Shoppers Lottery. My share of the $9 Million dollar prize was $125.000.00. Enclosed was a 'cheque' for $4875.00 to cover government taxes would be deducted from my winnings. I should send $2875.00 by Western Union or Moneygram directly to the tax agent, Sandra Johnson, address listed as 1885 Wilson Ave,Toronto, ONT, Canada.and a phone number of 1-416-858-9579.

I tried to reverse look up the phone number and found nothing. I looked up Zenith Financial and Trust, 2034 S. St. Aubin, Sioux City, IA 51106 (the address on the check) - and guess what - no such place was listed there. Next I looked up Lasalle Bank, 4733 Main St, Lisle, IL 60532-1783 (again listed on the check) and same thing - no listing. This is a very real looking check and I'm sure some people are fooled. also there was no return address on the envlope.

should I had deposited this check into my account, I would have paid "returned check fees" and perhaps they have a way to find out your account information when you deposit this check. what a scham!

THE CHECK ITSELF WAS THE RED FLAG THAT IT WAS A SCAM

AUTHOR: Laurie - (U.S.A.)

No legitimate lottery or sweepstakes will send you a check to pay fees or taxes with just to have you send it back to them.

Those will be removed from legitimate winnings upfront.

Its like the Mystery Shopping Scam - no business is going to send out checks for several thousand dollars to just anyone with hopes you will do as instructed.You have to be affiliated with a legitimate Mystery Shopping Service, apply for jobs and get hired to do them and they never

you did all the right things - I did the same with a suspicious email the other day. It was a phishing scheme - I ignored the links provided and googled the website, mapped the address provided NEITHER EXISTED.
