I received a letter in the mail from AER Financial Trust: International Finance Department declaring me the winner in the second category of Sweepstakes and Lottery Draw help April 17,2009.

Included in the letter was a check for $4,850 as a partial payment of my winnings to assist with the payment of taxes. Letter indicated I should contact my representative (Jane Brown 1-289-888-2267) prior depositing the check. She stated that once the check cleared I was to Western Union or Money Gram $2,950 to my claim rep and afterward they would make arrangements for me to receive the rest of my $125K. She had me convinced answering all of my questions well. Apparently I was automatically entered by using my debit card at Walmart, JcPenny or some other list of stores. And apparently all others had not claimed their share of the winnings so I was entitled to the whole lot. There were various other smooth replies, so I went to the bank and deposited the check, which by the way was drawn from Fleet Bank making the whole thing all the more convincing. When I got home I got a bad feeling and decided to do a search on this "sweepstakes". Thank goodness I did and thank goodness for Ripoffreport.com. I was able to call my bank and have them cancel the deposit immediately. They were all to please to do so as they were very familiar with teh scam. Please please please, go with your gut! It has spared me losing an awful lot of money that I do not have. Thank you Ripoffreport.com!

Yeah i was convinced too. I was told to call Stacy Willis at 1-289-888-1876 and she told me that i entered a sweepstakes at walmart. She told me to deposit the money and then send her 2,950.00 to claim the rest of my winnings of $125,000.00. Well this morning I tried to use my debit card and it declined. I called my bank and they told me that the check was a fraud and there was no funds in the account that came from the check. So now my account is in the negative. I am now responsible for covering the negative balance on my account. How sad.
