I received a check in the mail in the amount of $3950.00 from a global city financial Inc. out of New York dated January 25th. The letter claimed I had won a $100,000 from a Euro- American Publishing house sweepstakes.

The letter tells me to begin my claim I need to call there licensed and accredited claim agent named Mr. Ray Owens at #1-905-598-1979. I was very interested in finding out if this was real or not so I called him. When he answered it was not the way a business would answer the phone he had a very thick accent (sounded like Russian) and advised me to deposit the check and wait a few days for the funds to clear and then send the amount of $2950 to cover all of the taxes on the award. We would have the remaining amount of 96,050.00 would be fed-ex to us shortly after.

The check is written from Wauchula State Bank and is signed by a James D and the last name is hard to decipher. This looks like a real check and that is what led me to investigate this. The Wauchula bank is real out of Florida. We have not contacted them as of now.
