That is exactly what the letter said, the check was very real, with a real bank and its address, which I looked up online and it was there.

My husband presented this letter and check to me when I got home from work, it was 6:20 central time, which made it 5:20 eastern time when I called this so called claims agent. When I was connected to him,

he asked for my full name, phone number and the claim number on the letter and when I gave him the infomation, he said, that he would have to reserch this claim number and he would call me back with in the hour, I have not heard back from him, which started me thinking, so I began to search the internet, when I came upon this website. When I made the phone call it was the day befor Good Friday, so I figure he is waiting until Monday to call me back, after the holoidys.

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

Dear Consumers,

Wagan Corporation/Honor International Corporation is in no way affiliated with North American Gaming Association. An unknown group or entity is operating a prize money check scam; fraudulently using the Wagan Corporation/Honor International Corporation name. The scam is being perpetrated with stolen checks from Cathay Bank. The banking account there is now closed. Do NOT cash the check from this prize money scam. This is a known scam tactic (see http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/anatomy_of_a_scam.php). The check scam has already been filed as a fraud case with the Hayward, California Police Department.

If you have any information, come across this scam, or am a victim of this check scam, please contact Cathay Bank at (408) 437-6188. The bank is currently investigating the case.
