So I caled this Eric Brown about the check. All he asks for is the check number and tells me is to deposit the check and to call him back when the check clears. Guess what i did, I went and deposited the check. It took three days for he bank to clear it and I called hime back. He then transfers me to some women, Her name was Monica Edwards. She tells me to send the $2,845.00 to a bond officer through Money Gram and to call Eric back with the confirmation.

After I hang up I'm thinking to my self this is to good to be true and why is it happening to me.
I went to the bank to withdrawal the money, when the bank tellers tells me that the check was no good (it was a fraud). Thank God that I waited for the check to clear from the bank other wise I would have to be paying up money i don't have.

After the insident at the bank I called Eric again and told him that the chack was no good. He then flips out saying that the check was good and he don't know why the bank was saying that it wasn't. Sorry Eric I'll believe my bank over any total strange any day.

You got off lucky Maria!

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


Your lucky, this group has been operating under different names and you will notice that there are similar reports on the Ripoff Report about this scam.

Just in the past few days, I recall reading about people getting scammed by the Royal Foundation Lotto group and you will notice that a "Monica Edwards" works there as well!

Now here is an important fact that you should be aware of: They now have your name and phone number.

I am not trying to scare you.

What is going to happen is that you will start getting Telemarketing calls... so just be careful!

I don't care if your phone number is on the Do Not Call list... do you think Canadian Telemarketers give a hoot about our National Do Not Call list?

If you can afford it, have your phone number changed. If you can, have your phone listed under a different name. For example, tell the phone company that you will be paying the bill but it needs to be listed under your husbands name.

In fact, more and more people are listing their phones under their pets name because of the growing phone and mail scams... so just think about how to protect your self!

I practice what I am suggesting... our dog has a magazine subscription to New Scientist and Photography... she has also been getting junk mail and telephone calls for valuable insurance offers from Bank of America!

Next point: Most people don't know that foreign lotteries are illegal... no your not going to get into trouble. All I am saying is check it out for your self and visit the FTC and see what they say.

Visit the USPS site and see what they say and/or Goggle Foreign Lotteries Scams and educate yourself!

Take Care!
