receieved a letter from Grand Rapids, no return address. Cashiers Check from Bank of the West, $4200.00 to cover legal fees was inside, purchased by Ritash Dunne, and signed by Jen Benton, all of the numbers on the check were good, along with a letter that states that Mr. Kevin Soto would handle my legal paper work and it is signed by  Robert Hugo, who is with The American Dream Sweepstakes Promotion, and he is the sender?
The address is in Madrid Spain 28511,Calle Padre Damian No 4-6 Planta . The letter states nothing about depositing the check, nor does it give an email address of where to reach Mr Soto. Only the phone numbers mentioned above, which require a special phone card from my mobile service to access. The letter also has Claim # NT0415-269; Ref 763509-A6

 Niether the letter nor the check ever tells you what to do with the check, or how you are suppose to get the funds to the legal agant  Mr. Kevin Soto. There is never a mention of a Western Union wire

#1 Consumer Suggestion

This is a scam

AUTHOR: Nakshatradevi - (United States of America)

Thanks for posting that.  I just wanted to give you a heads up that this is a scam, perpetrated usually by Nigerian or Eastern European fraudsters. The cashier's check is a counterfeit and once you deposit it into your account, it will bounce in 7-10 days and your bank will hold you liable, for whatever funds you have used from it.

Your best bet is to take this check to a Bank of the West, where they can flag the account that is being used to draw this check and to use as evidence.

Don't be fooled, no one gives you money for free.  If you call the number they will tell you that this is a down-payment for your lotto winnings, and they just need to pay taxes using this money.

Either throw the whole thing away, or take it to the police or your bank.
