They sent me a check for 4,875.00 dollars and told me that 2,875.00 was to be paid by western union or money gram was to be paid directly to the goverment tax agent.

Not to use the check until i called keeping the winning confidential , called told to deposit tried twice by opening an account was told there would be no funds aviable,leaving the account with a negitive balance.

So inturn they wouldn't open the account.d**n i thought christmas was going to be good.

This is a Classic Rip-off, not usually company named!

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

Simply put: If you're a "winner", better you ask yourself the following
1) Did I ENTER this contest? If the answer is NO, it's a scam.
2) Do they ask you to send money via Moneygram/W.U. or other wired funds?

They play on your need or greed to steal what you have!

My wife and I were both "hit" with something like this-but there are inconsistancies in the check. Take a CLOSE LOOK.

Is the company on the check the same as in the letter? If not, take it to the POLICE.
Is the address of the financial institution spelled correctly? I got one that had an incorrect address!

Find the bank, and call them. Verify the account/account holder.

Check the address of the company! Seems smart, right? I did on one of them we received- no such company at the address stated!

Is it out of country? They've been coming from Canada. This is a classic scam. Take it to the police, postal service, or other authorities. They might be able to set up a "STING" to nab the perpetrators. Just ONE caught will be a warning to all who try it!
