It sure looked good when I open the letter and found the check for $4500.00! And as I looked at it I did get excited.
It had Wells Fargo Bank stamped on it and it said void after 180 days.
The letter that came with it said I had won the lottery, even gave me the numbers that won, I never play the lottery for one.
Two, the address that it was mailed to was an address I hadn't used in over two years!
Three, the letterhead was huge red, white and blue with a flag that stated USA POWERBALL
A totally differant address from the one on the check, in fact the check had the company name Linkshare Corp located in New York, and Wells Fargo Bank, located in San francisco Ca.
The letter ask me to PLEASE fulfill all reguirements to protect their clients.
I was also ask to call FRANK MILLER toll free at 778-554-1065, a mans voice was on the "machine" stating he was busy and to leave a message, the vioce mail was busy. After that I called several local banks and found that I would have to deposit the check into my checkings and was advised NOT to do this as most had already been taken by the same people, differant names, differant company names but same states involved. I assumed this must be a way to get checking info and personal information, maybe empty peoples accounts out, I don't know....But one man I talked to had gotten the same check and five days after cashing it, he had to send 3900.00 to that company, plus pick up a lot of bad checks he had written, the company "closed" shop and moved and claimed to have never heard of the person he talked to on the phone........
Not me I told myself and the check is still here, just in case it is needed for evidence against these people.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

this was a scam.

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

Powerball is one of the more ethical lotteries (in terms of legit lotteries).

First off, any $$ won over a certain $ amt in most states requires a personal visit to lottery headquarters (or mailing in certified letter, etc).... most opt to personally visit to avoid losing the winning ticket.

In Oklahoma it was $600 or less could be done by the place that sold it... but higher requires direct visit or communication.

Plus since the powerball group has millions in reserve, there are never bad checks

What u got was one of the many fake setups that try to scam people.
