Porter Gaming - Lottery Resources Management & Payment Verification Fraudulent Sweepstakes Claims to be Sponsered by Readers Digest & Publishers Clearinghouse ripoff Saint Thomas Virgin Islands

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

I received a letter in the mail from Canada with no return address indicating that I had won a Sweepstake of 50,000 U.S. dollars. With this letter came a check totalling 3750.00, stating that this check would be subtracted from the winnings, and that I needed to contact A Angelina McGee to finialize this transaction. The area code that was given was 705 which is in Ontario, Canada.

Looking at the check I noticed that it was written on a bank named Homecoming Financial located in Dallas, Texas. Noticing all the different areas that these items were coming from I beleived that this was a scam. I called Readers Digest, Publishers Clearinghouse to see if they used an agency called Porter Gaming Corporation to contact their sweepstake winners. Both agencys informed me that they contact their own winners personally. I tried to contact the bank in Dallas, Texas but only found their phone to be disconnected.

I also contacted their headquarters in Minneapolis, Mn. they refered me to a customer service number that kept me on hold for over 10 minutes I finally hung up.

The letter also indicated that is was a Lottery Resources Management & Payment Verification. When I looked this up on the internet I found lots of information on this orginazation. Information that is not good. Be aware that there are lots of people that are wanting our hard earned money. And they will try anything to make us a victim of their efforts.

The police were called and a report was made. I would like to thank Jennifer from Norwalk, Connecticut who made a report that I read which confirmed my findings. I would hope that if there are more out there that are receiving these types of letters they will also make a report to police. Together we can make a difference and maybe, just maybe bring these people to justice.
