North American Prize Pool - Trinity Financial Management Ripoff Lottery scam by mail Montreal Quebec

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

We recieved a letter from Trinity Financial Management stating we had won in a Promotional Sweepstakes Lottery from North American Pool. The letter also incdlued a check for $4,750 (deductible from our apparent $95,000 winnings). The check was to cover the cost of "government/bond fees, and administrative costs through Money Gram or Western Union". It also stated we should not attempt to cash the check without first calling Mike or Joyce for detailed instructions. (the address was Canada but the check was written from First Union National Bank showing the TFM address in South Barrington IL)

I immediately figured this for a scam - too many red flags - won a contest I'd never entered, mail without a return address, a check to cover costs of money I'd won. I, of course, got on line to research the companies even before calling them and found this Rip Off Report.

Since the last one - note they have added the Trinity Financial Management name to the North American Prize Pool and have provided different physical address.

Don't be taken because the check looks real (which it does and might be) and you could use the money (we certainly can, we're expecting twins in Oct.) I'd like to know where I can report this mail fraud...
