AWARD NOTIFICATION COMMISSION Total Rip Off!!!! Just want your banking information!!!! Kansas City Kansas

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

                My mother was a victim of a place claiming to be associated with Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. These people sent her an award notification, stating that all she had to do was give them a check for $11.89 as a processing fee, and she would be the winner of either $1,980,00.00, or (should she choose) $1,000,000.00 a year for life.

                In reality, all they wanted was her banking information. This is not an actual award of any kind, and instead is a form of fraud. What they will ask you to do is send another check, and then another check, until you owe them close to $70.00. When you refuse to pay them the amount they feel you should pay, they will attempt to take the money from your account.

                My mother is lucky, in the sense that our bank is extremely careful about anyone trying to process a check from her account. [continued below]....

..... However, from what I have read, many people have not been this lucky. Many of the complaints go back as far 2007, and it is 2013 now! Something needs to be done about this issue. My mother lives on a fixed income, and though I try to help her financially as much as I am able, things like this are just a kick in the gut!

                It makes me angry that they would victimize someone that does not have the money to spare, someone that has given all her life, and now, because of these people she has been let down again. I do not understand the concept of anyone that would do this to someone else, but further I do not understand why something has not been done about this issue! These people, company, or whatever you would like to call it needs to be stopped! Not a slap on the wrist stopped, but locked up in prison stopped!
