My 83 yr old mother received a letter and a check in the mail yesterday. The letter said that she was a 3rd grand prize winner of $75,000 through a computer ballot system drawn from Reader's Digest, National Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

The letter said to call the contact - Frank Lucas - 1-514-586-0995 to activate the check. I called Mr. Lucas and told him about the letter and check. (I also told him that my Mom was 83 today). He said "what a GREAT b-day present. We can deliver her prize with balloons and have her picture in the paper. Mr. Lucas told me to go the the bank and call him when I got back.

I got excited and went to the bank. Luckily, I have a friend at the bank that has more sense than me. He googled the signature "Jerry Scofield" Clearing Commissioner and that is how we found out that it was a scam.

I came back to work and called Mr. Lucas and told him that I had deposited the check. He said "You weren't supposed to deposit it, you were supposed to cash it". Little did he know I didn't even deposit it. My banker contacted the bank on the check and the ck # had already cleared the bank. So, if I had cashed it and gave the company their money to get my mom's "prize". The check would have come back and the money would have come out of my Mom's account.

My bank faxed the letter and the check to their fraud dept and to the FBI. I'm thinking of getting the secret service involved.

If this helps just one person, it will be well worth my time.
