I received a letter in the mail saying that i won some kind of sweepstake and it included a cashier's check for $3945.00 from an account with Capital One Bank. it said that the check was mine but before I deposited it, I should call and get my claim activated.
First i called Capital One to see if they could verify that this check was real and was told that they couldn't tell me that information but my bank will.
I was sceptical but I called the number on the letter and was told that i won and i was asked for the refence number and the verification of my name. A Mr. John McLeod did not ask for any confidential information from me so i was starting to hope that it was not a scam.
He wanted me to call him after i deposited the check so that he could release the funds to the bank but i called him before i went and told him that i already went to see what he would say. The only thing he said was that everything was great and that he would release the funds. I was expecting him to ask for my account information or any other confidential information but he didn't.
I went to my bank, Wachovia, and ask them to check if the check was real, and if it was, I wanted to deposit it. She made her call, faxed the letter and check to whoever and after about 10 mins told me that it was a fraud and that Mr. John Mcleod probably wanted me to send some money back to him after it was cashed.
It was a fraud. So if you get a letter from the International Lawyers Association, beware! I wanted to put this in here because i googled the company to see if i would see scam or fraud alerts on them and didn't. Hopefully next person will see this entry.

See a copy of the letter and the check. The check didn't have void on it until i went to the bank and they found it to be a fraud.
