GLOBAL TRUST AND FINANCE SWEEPSTAKES WINNINGS WITH BOGUS CHECK INCLOSED ALABAMA
My winnings of 250,000.00 was to be sent to me once the taxes were paid. Enclosed was a check for $3985.00 deleted fron the winnings to pay the taxes of $2985.00.
The taxes were to be paid thru MONEYGRAM found at my local Walmart. I called the phone number on the letter for information.
I called & was told to just deposit the check tomorrow & than call back for further information on paying the taxes. I was to talk to Claim Agent "Renee Walsh". The letter is signed by "Michael Larrington"
Two things struck me as strange: 1st why send a portion of the money & have me send back all but $1000.00 to pay the taxes? Why not just deduct the taxes from the winnings. 2nd the check had no bank address & just looked odd.
I started to research the company & found on this site another report exactly the same as what I received except the check was on a different bank. This check was from Wachovia Bank in Alabama.
I was lucky not to get caught in this scam & hope that this additional report saves someone else from getting caught in this scam. I reported this to the U.S. Postal Service Mail Fraud department on line.
