I received a check for $4875 on 2/17/09 from Zenith Financial and Trust in Canada. They said they had been trying to reach me to let me know I had won a contest and $125,000. The check was to pay for taxes on the winnings and I was directed to contact Linda Robert, Promotion Manager, before cashing check. She would direct me further. It said I was to pay the taxes of $2,875 by western union to my tax agent. The check looks very real.

On 2/18/09, I searched the internet for info on this and discovered it was a scam. I called "Linda Robert" (very echoing sounds over the phone) - told her who I was and what I did. I told her that I had checked the internet and that the public is already onto the scam and that I was not interested in participating. She said "thank you" and hung up.

there is no sun trust bank in rockville maryland.

Common Scam

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

I worked for SunTrust for a year and not a day went buy that i didn't see a check like that. The scammers will get ahold of an actual SunTrust account number and cut fake checks to people claiming that all you have to do is cash said check and send $XXX back to the address on the letter after calling to verify that the check is valid. Honestly it's not a difficult scam, and the absurd thing is that people every day are getting scammed this way. Always, as soon as SunTrust is made aware of the scam the client's account is set to No debits and alerts are placed all over the account to let the cashiers know what is going on in case they miss the warning signs on the check itself.
