I received a letter and a check in the mail for $4920.34 from a company named Consumer Promotions Internation, Inc. The check appears to be a legitimate check and the letter states that I have won $250, 000.00 because my name was attached to an enty slip with a serial number 431465 and it drew the lucky number 22-26-42-44 and will be paid by certified check via next day fedex and to contact Jessica Gordon or Barry Smith at 1-866-264-5570 ext 332 to get more info and to not cash the check until I have talked to them. It states that the letter is from the office of C Ferguson, VP Finance, Markham, Toronto ON and the letter was sent on 4/14/09. It also tells me to contact my tax agent Donna Anderson or Grace Johnson, 33 Benedict Court, Athens, GA 30605. There is a reference number GBF 62347-CP. I attempted to call the number and was directed to a man who claimed his name was Barry, speaking very poor English and he told me that I had won the money and then I got disconnected. I have tried to call the number back several times and have not been able to speak with another person.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Forget it.

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

Stop trying to call them and do not deposit that check. It's fake. You are dealing with scammers who send bogus checks, get you to deposit them in your bank, get you to send them cash via moneygram (untraceable), then disappear before your bank notifies you that you deposited a bogus check and you now owe them that money back.

Think about this for a minute. Do you recall entering this particular contest or lottery? Of course you didn't. In real life, checks for thousands of dollars, for contests you never heard of, don't come magically floating into your mailbox. In order to pull off a successful con, the scammer must always rely on one essential ingredient. The greed that allows the victim to think he/she will get something for nothing.
