Offshore Financial Services /North America Prize Pool/ Pace Financial Services sent my husband a letter stating we won $350,000.00. All mail was sent from Ontario, Canada.... Please click on this site to see WARNING!! Ripoff North York Ontario Canada
So on August/2/2007 he received a letter re:payment. Also in the envelope was a check for $57,000.00. The letter stated that he was a winner of a contest called North America Prize Pool, sponsored by multi national companies. That we were entered either through our bank, the internet, the telephone company, or a magazine we subribed to, or possibly our credit card company.
The letter said to call a Mr. Jerry Peterson at 1-416-858-3965 or 1-905-781-3965 to validate the check. Once the check was validated to immediately go my bank and deposit the ckeck. Once the check cleared to call back to get instructions on how to wire $45,500.00 this money which represented 13% administrative charges. Then under 24 to 48 hours upon verifing that we had sent the payment they would send our 2nd check for US$293,000.00. The letter was signed by Annah Johnson, director.

phone number's are 1-416-858-3965 & 1-905-781-3965...
The letter looked very professional with code #'s and batch claim i.d.'s. What they didn't expect was that the bank was well aware of this scam, and would not allow us to deposit this check.
So I went on step more and called to check issuer which was HBO, yes the cable network. They also were aware of the scam, and they were happy that we lost no money in this scam. I made copies of all letters and the check they sent us. I sent HBO the check and letters the scammers sent us.
The thing that was different then all the other cases was they had seen. Was the our check was for $57,000.00 and now they could involve the FBI because FBI couldn't get involve unless on check total was over $20,000.00.
So a lesson well learned by our family but I prey everyday that they didn't get a penny from us. But unfortuately they did take a little happiness, we are very poor and could have really used the money. So we believe in karma and with any luck they will get theirs and with our help it will be easier for the FBI's to nail these jerks.
