I received a letter and check for $2,985 on june 29 2007 stating that i had won a contest with the north american utilities, my ticket number was 5644581 with serial number 65489. A Jerome Thoms took my phone call and said i should cash the check and send the money via money gram to a patricia hanson in bradford, ontario, I was then to call jerome thomas back and let him know that the money was wired. He said I should hear from him by july 4th 2007 for a tracking number from fed ex so i can track the delivery of my winnings, well the date had come and I had not heard from him so I called him, he said fed ex wasnt running to the holiday, pretty legitimate reason I thought, he told me he will have the tracking number for me today July 6th 2007, around 11am i called and he said fedex wasnt picking up until 4pm, I waited and eventually my phone rang, unfortunately it was my bank saying the check for $2,985 that was cashed in my account on june, 29 2007 was being sent back because they cannot find the account in which it was coming from so now I owe the bank $2,985. I feel very stupid for falling for this scam, I should have seen it coming like most of you have, but I didnt and now I have to figure out how to get out of this mess. to those of you in my situation I wish you the best and hope you wish the same for me. Good luck

#1 Consumer Suggestion

RE: HiFi check scam

AUTHOR: Heff01 - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, September 10, 2007
Winning a lottery that you didn't enter is fishy and you should NEVER wire money to someone whom you don't know. Once the money is picked up at the Western Union or Money Gram location, its trail ends. You are the victim of a counterfeit check scam and are unfortunately responsible for your overdraft. Also, it is illegal for US residents to use the mail or internet to participate in foreign lotteries. The scammers used your checking account to defraud your bank and leave you holding the bag. Before wiring money or sending a check back, think why they can't simply deduct any fees/taxes from the check.

Meanwhile, contact PA Attorney General Tom Corbett's office. 717-787-8242 or toll-free for the Consumer Protection office 800-441-2555 http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/
