On July 22, 2009, I received a letter stating that I was the winner of $50,000, a sweepstakes held in U.K. The Person who wrote the letter said to be, Shawn Davidson, the prize director representing the sovereign International Sweepstakes Claim Department.

I couldn't believe it, I was blinded by exitement and the thought of using the money for my education.I decided to call the number given in the letter,011-447-505-935-726. Shawn Davidson anwered right away, I told him my name and he said that in a few days I would receive a check with a letter and to call him right away. five days later I received a letter from Sam Bernard Manager of Accounts Department saying that the "certified cashier's check made out to me were for the taxes that had to be deducted from my price", He said to contact Shawn Davidson or Mr. cole.

I Called Shawn Davidson and he said that i had to deposit the check into my account and that once I had done that to give him a call. That night all the exitement had evaporated, and I started doubting the legitimacy of the "price". I told my friend about it and he decided google the company and found this page with reports of previous victims. I decided to not deposit the ckeck and forget about the whole thing.

The next day Shawn Davidson Called me asking why i hadnt called him; he asked me if i had deposited the ckeck (i decided to lie to him to see what other information i could get from his little scam) He then instructed me to remove the money from my account and to mail it through Western Union to Lola Price, Post 461 Bishop Avenue, London, U.K E 14. I couldn't stand him anymore so I told him that i knew he and his company were a big fake; He immidiately hung-up on me.

Dear ripoffreport members thank you for readin my report, I hope it has been of good information to you. Please be very careful with this company or any other. If you feel skeptical about an offering from a company please follow your instincts and look it up. I am deeply thankful to this page.

Thank you,
Good luck

You hit this indecent right on the head. I was waiting to hear someone who had actually went further than just receiving the letter. The same thing happened to me but the only difference is that i had not received any check only a letter, but i made "shawn" believe that i had and deposited the check into my account. he called me for three days straight trying to get in contact with me about their taxes. when i finally responded to one of his last calls he told me that i had tried to run with the money and spend there fake check.I let him know that i was aware of his faulty business and that i have alerted the police. he then hung up on me. i hope nobody else is stupid enough to fall for this lame scam. he is just an ordinary criminal working from his cell phone trying to find victims to prey upon. shame on him.
