I received a letter from the Global Foundation Lotto, March 27 2007.
It contained a Ref#, Winner Code # and stated that my name was attached to a coupon number 076-87445 with serial # 306-740 and it had drew the lucky numbers. The letter gave me a contact name(Jerry Smith)and a number for me to call. I called and he was very professional and asked for no personal information. He instructed me to deposit the check into my account and to call him back after the check($2,975.00)cleared. He asked had I ever won anything before and of course I had not. He congratulated me on being a winner.

I deposited it right away. Of course I did not wait the 5 days. As soon as I saw it was available for me to withdraw I called him back and he instructed me on how I was to commence my claim. I was to withdraw only $2840.00 in cash and take it to my nearest Walmart and transfer to Gabriella Morales at 3050 Eisenhower Blvd. Ottawa, Canada, K2W1J9. Once I transfered the money a courier was supposed to deliver the proper tax forms within 24 to 48 hours. Of course this was on a Friday and when I talked to Jerry Smith on the phone soon before the money was to be delivered he said the courier was only a couple of hours away, that was on March 30th 2007. When I called back a couple of hours later all I got was a answer machine stating all agents were busy and to leave a message and my call would be returned. Today is April 1st 2007 which to think about it, it is a Fool's Day. But my wife and I are not laughing. We both work full time. We are in our late 50's and we thought WoW! can we be Bill free! Looks like we just added another bill we have to pay when the bank get the check back. We do not want this to happen to anyone else. My wife was skeptical but we did it anyway. Can anyone help!!

This is an old scam. The check you received in the mail is a fake. When you deposited the funds, you had the cash in the bank to cover the check, and you were in such a hurry you sent the money to the "black hole" right away. A check will take a matter of weeks maybe a month to determine if the check is actually a forgery, this is what the scammers want. Before you know it is a fake, you already sent the monies. The really bad part is that the money is forever lost, and you will need to pay the bank back the money when the check comes back as a fraud. An expensive lesson that there are no lotteries that people just win. In the future just say no to scams.
