Zenith Financial Inc Imperial Financial Probable Scam Canada, Nova Scotia
*Consumer Comment: Yup, it's a scam
Not to be confused with legitimate Zenith Financial or Imperial Financial. Received a letter mailed in Canada from a Zenith Financial along with a check drawn on Suntrust Bank (no address) in Florida, from Boats International Inc, 771 West Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach, Fl.33060. Enclosed with the letter from Zenith Financial was a Check for $4,800.00. The letter stated that we had won $485,000.00 dollars to be used to help pay the taxes and that "Imperial Financial Inc." had been assigned to handle the transaction. We were instructed to call the claims agent Bob Stevens @1778-859-1836 and not to act on the notice until contact with the claims representative was made
Going to the inter net, there is a Boats International website listed at that address with a telephone number of 954-783-2900. Calling that number someone answered the phone and said that Boats International was next door. Calling Pompano Beach telephone directory operator, revealed no listing for Boats International in Pompano Beach. As mentioned, there was no address listed on the check for the Suntrust Bank branch. The inter net revealed numerous Suntrust Banks in Pompano Beach. Seemingly that if Imperial Financial was assigned to process the claim, the letterhead would be that of Imperial and not of Zenith.
The letter along with the check came in a plain envelope, mailed in Canada with no return address. Betting 100-1 that if we call the telephone number listed for the claims agent, we would be asked to send them some processing money etc.
Interesting in that it would appear someone went to the trouble of creating a web page for Boats International listed at the same address as that on the check with a number that whomever picks up the phone states they are next door plus all the other red flags........
