Thursday, November 06, 2008, I recieved the letter and check by the mail. The letter stated by congratulating me, that the Business/Home Improvement Grant was not repayable and that it was a prixe that I had won. Well the check was for $3,950.70 and I was suppose to pay the taxes and fees from this check and the balance was mine to keep.

But further into the letter it stated that there was an escrow account for the remaining balance of the $37,000.00 pending my response to the $3,950.70 check. The disbursement of the final balance would not be sent to me until I called the phone number above on this report (289-892-4698) and I had to speak to the Claim Manager Andrew Coxwel or Lisa Woodworth.

I did exactly what was instructed by the letter, and furthermore, it lead me to a voicemail telling me to leave my name, claim number, and phone number and they would respond back to me as soon as the call volume for the representatives is down. I would not take this for an answer, I just knew it was to good to be true, so I go onto the internet to look up this company for legitimacy and the only thing I found was the Southwest Trust Company located in Oklahoma.

I spoke with Leah Chaplin and she assured me that this was an ongoing scam. I knew in my heart it was to good to be true. So then she gave me some weblinks to file reports and yours happen to be one of them. My husband also contacted the bank on the check and talked to a representative and they also stated that the check was fraudulent and told him to take the check to our police headquarters and so we did.

This is not right at all, I am a mother of 2 children, unemployed due to my dyeing mother needing me at home, and with the economy, my husbands check only goes so far. For someone to do this, well, let just say they violated me and I do not appreciate this at all. I want these people caught and I would like for them to pay me, just so they would know how violated I feel. Its not the money it is the respect for my family.

Please consider to contact me by mail or email or even my phone. Thank you

Anna, Texas
