Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I got a letter and a check from a company called Global Financial Inc. telling me that I won second prize in a MEGA LOTTERY on April 18. The check they sent with it however looks real but it is from a company called TMOF INCORPORATED and the address is from 9404 e Marginal Way south in Seattle Washington the amount is $3,650.45. If anybody knows anything about this company or has gotten this same letter and check please respond, I would really like to find out what these people are up too.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

What they are up to is simple

AUTHOR: Dave - (Canada)

They are up to no good.

The victim deposits the check. Their bank releases some of the funds and maybe puts a hold on the rest. Western Union or Moneymart is used to have to victim send cash to the scammers. When the check turns out to be no good, the victim is left with a hole in their bank account.

Western Union, Moneymart, may look and act like a secure way to send money. They aren't. Their own web-sites tell people never to send money to anyone they don't personally know. If you aren't sending money to someone you know, you are giving money to someone you'll never hear from again.
