Global Financial - Transworld Shipping USA Lottery winner of $ 450,000.00 and sent check from Citibank N.A. BR #152 Long Beach, CA 90831 for $ 4,925.00 Halifax Nova Scotia
My Wife got a letter stating she won $ 450,000.00 dollars in the USA Mega (under the international Sweepstakes) Draw held on April 16, 2008. It says she was one of the second category winners. (it actually says "draw" not Drawing??) Idiots can't even type correctly.
Entry slip # 2874501 with the lucky number 22-24-38-41-47.
She never entered a lottery or sweepstakes so I figured it was fraudulent.
The letter says to contact a tax agent: Tracy Phillips, 445 University Ave. Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, A5C 4K6
Tax amount: $ 3,715.00 US Dollars
Payment method: Money Gram
The letter also states that she is advised to contact the claim agent, Victoria Daniels @ 1-778-858-9134 Mon thru Fri from 10AM to 5PM and Sat 10AM to 2PM to start the claim process and activate the check.
Note: Please do not act on this notice until you contact your claim agent to avoid cases of misappropriation and mishandling of prize monies.
At the bottom there is also a part that is designated to be filled out with name, address and signature to be given to the representative after the check of $450,000.00 is received. Looks like it is an attempt at some type of affidavit.
It also states at the bottom of the letter:
Global Offices: USA, Germany, Hong-Kong, Ecuador, South Africa, UK and France.
Even if I had a remote thought that this might be the real deal, this statement alone would have got me wondering.
This is almost funny to think we would fall for this SCAM but I guess people still do. That makes me sad that some poor person will loose some big money on this
Where can I report these people besides here? Does anyone know.
