Good luck with that.

Stephanie,

I'm not trying to put you down or burst your bubble.   This is a well known scam and shows up on this site almost daily.   The whole purpose of sending you the check was to convince you to wire "taxes" on your make-believe winnings.   In real life, you are not required to pay anything in order to get something that you legitimately won.    

If you deposit the phony check, your bank will eventually reject it.   If you're smart and don't wire those "taxes", you won't be out any money.    The only real risk is that by depositing a large, phony check, your bank may decide that you were trying to scam them and close your account.   People who have fallen for the scam have reported that happening to them.

If you really believe that you won $95,000 in a contest that you didn't enter, I have a feeling we'll be seeing you back on this site in the near future.

No you hold on

AUTHOR: stephanie - (United States of America)

If this is such a scam, why didn't that lady put who she talks to and when and you can't say people never win from lotteries and such because I know people who got random checks like this and did win out of the blue. Don't bash me and tell me I'm gonna lose money, I never said I'm gonna give them any money through wires, I have the letter still and I won't have to pay shit. So don't go putting me down. All I'm saying is people need to show more proof of stuff before they post it as ripoffs.

Not so fast, Stephanie.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

   This is a well known scam.    The check you received is phony.  Your bank will be notifying you of this within a week or so, when the check is actually rejected by the originating bank.  Of course, before that happens, the scammers will try to get you to send them a large, untraceable, cash transfer through Western Union, Moneygram, Greendot or some other untraceable method.   By the time the bank tells you that you owe them thousands for the phony check you deposited, the scammers will be long gone with your real cash.  

  The key to this is that the scammers will insist that you send the money to them by an untraceable method.   Western Union personal transfers are mostly used, since anyone can pick up the money anonymously anywhere in the world.   This ultimately means that you'll have no idea who got your money, and that's the way scammers prefer it.   

   Generally speaking, people do not win tens of thousands of dollars in lotteries / contests that they didn't enter.   The scammers rely on the victim's greed to overrule their common sense.

  Good luck.

I got the same letter

AUTHOR: stephanie - (United States of America)

I got a letter exactly like this one saying i was the second prize winner and i took the cashiers check to the bank and the bank accepted it and deposited the money to my account. Did the person posting this complaint even try calling this guy? I did. He verified the check, didnt ask for any of my  personal information. I dont see where this lady put that she tried calling anyone or took anything to the bank. Dont post anything unless you have more information regarding how you went about depositing or talking to the guy.
