this company sent me a 2345.00 fraudulent cashiers check on desert schools fed credit union and stated I had won 1.5 million in the elgordo lottery. the phone number they wanted me to call is 1-778-859-1777 the contact name is brian macdonald and the name Garret Logan vice president is also mentioned on this letter. The letter states that I am to keep it quiet and not notify anyone until the transaction is complete. I am supposed to be a 1.5 million dollar winner and wish someone would catch these crooks and make them really pay me the money.

AUTHOR: Dwayne59330 - (U.S.A.)

I received an envelope postmarked from Canada and it contained a check from a bank in Tx, and a letter from California. It stated that I was a "winner" in a sweepstakes and the check was available to pay and legal, insurance, and processing fees. And for me to contact my claims agent, Tony Williams, for more details.

The letter gave the following address...:

4695 Chabot Dr.
Preasanton, CA 95588

There is no Preasanton, CA And the telephone number that was on the letter,
1 (778) 859 1777, is a British Columbia number. the check was in the amount of $3945.00. There has to be something that us, as citizens, can do about this. Its a shame that ppl have to stoop this low and send ppl fraudulent checks. I mean, what are they getting out of it. We're not cashing it for them....

The whole point is to STEAL YOUR MONEY!

The check they sent is the "RED FLAG" !

The DON'T TELL ANYONE is the 2nd RED FLAG - they do not want you to tell anyone because they don't want you to find out it is a scam before they have stolen your money from you.

No legitimate lottery or sweepstakes will send you a check to pay taxes or fees with, just to have you send it back to them. Those are removed from winnings first and reported to the IRS.

They are looking for people who will immediately do as instructed, without thinking!

By the time you find out its a scam you are out several thousands of dollars and possbility of arrest for passing bad checks.
