I received the letter on June 1, 2008 which stated that I won a shoppers sweepstakes. It had a claim number DH/SUL-0011. I was instructed to call Lewis Mcgregor 1-416-831-5655. Enclosed was a check for $4890.00 and it was to be used to pay $2985.00 in taxes which I was to pay by moneygram or western union. I was excited because it was the first payment of the $250,000 which would come later. I went to the bank and was told that it was probably a scam. I called him while at the bank because he said to call after I deposited the check to call. I did not deposit the check. He was suppose to tell me where to send the money for the taxes. He said call him back in 30 minutes when I called he wanted to know if I deposited the check. When I said no then he got upset he said "Why didn't you deposit the check?
I told him that I had questions and he put me on hold never to return.

If I would have deposited the check I would have been reported to chex system and would have a problem opening a bank account in the future. Please pass the word to everyone.

Brooklyn, New York
