ED Magedson – Founder
Imperial Financial Settlement LLC1000 Bloor Street West Toronto, Ontario United States of America
Confirms I am 2nd prize winner for US$150,000 in sweepstakes drawn Jan 30, 2010.
Lists claim #, winning numbers, etc. Payment assigned to Advance Financial Settlement and will send CERTIFIED CHECK by UPS/Fedex ($145090.00)
A very real looking check from Century 21 LLC, drawn on HSBC bank, for US$4910.00 included. Also listed two names of 'tax agents' to send via Western Union the obligatory tax amount.
Claims agent: Ken Wilson @ 1-778-317-4261. Call to make arrangements before doing anything else. HSBC is a real bank, but acct # on check was invalid when I called bank.
You have to ask, "why would a real estate company issue a check for an advance on sweepstakes/lottery winnings if the lottery winning was legitimate?" Hmmmm?
I believe this mailing may be fraudulent, and should definitely be turned over the to US Post Office.
