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

I am concerned because I recvd a letter and check which looks legal to cash in the amount of $4850, saying I won in a lottery drawing totaling $125,000.
I am a single mother raising 3 kids and about had a heart attack because I felt this was legal because the check doesn't say void and appears cashable.
I desperately need this money and am extremely disapointed to find it may all be a scam. I feel they should have to pay me this money now due to the fact what they have caused.
thank you

It happens all the time

AUTHOR: Michelle - (U.S.A.)

I would not trust these people as far as I could throw them.

There are thousands of companies in Nigeria and the UK alone who will send these types of letters to people making them believe they won something or are getting something for nothing. The big tip off is if the letter you received is worded odd, has broken sentences, or is misspelled.

Generally what they do is send you a letter, an email, or a fax claiming that you either won a large amount of money, or they ask you to cash a check for them and will give you an off the wall reason on why they can't cash it in their own country. They will ask you to cash the check, send them a certain amount, and keep the rest for yourself.

The problem is eventually you get a nice little notice from your bank stating that the check has bounced and you owe your bank an astonomical amount of money. Which in most cases is impossible to pay back and once you find out you've been duped, it's too late. They've already taken the money and ran.
