Upon opening the envelope and pulling out the letter, a check for $2,379.69 fell out. Looking at the letter head and the company name on the check, something didn't jive.

The letter was from " Financial Gaming Services" 1250 Rosemont Montreal, QC, HIS 1W6
Ph;1-514-572-5486 and signed by John Carter, Clearing  Commissioner. 

The check was written on "Comerica Bank, P.O. Box 650282, Dallas, TX, 75265
with the company name of "Bear Transportation Services, L.P.  5340 Legacy Dr. Ste 200  Plano,TX 75024.

I took all this to my bank to a bank officer, as I didn't like the letter telling me to keep my Claim completely confidential until it was completely processed "yay right" The other clues of the scam,
"I was the Beneficiary and I was Chosen to receive $80,000.00 from an Unclaimed Settlement."

The check is valid only by calling their offices first, as they claim this is only a security procedure to protect our customers identity. Sure it is. The scam is to get all our info, then clean out our bank accounts.

Please be very careful. When you get something like this do not keep quite about it, the way this letter said to do. Take it to someone you trust for their understanding of it, so you don't get rip off.

It only takes a few minutes for scammers to empty your bank account, but it will take a very long time to get your money back, if ever.

"  The scam is to get all our info, then clean out our bank accounts.  "

  There's no way for them to get all of your bank account info.    Here's how it really works :

1. You call them and they tell you to deposit the check, then send a few thousand $ via Western Union to pay for "taxes" on your $80K windfall.

2. Since those transfers are untraceable and irreversable, they now have your money.

3. Five to ten days later, your bank informs you that the check was deemed bogus when it was returned to the bank of origin.    You are now on the hook to repay the bank for the money you withdrew and the scammers are long gone enjoying the cash you sent them.
