Fraudulent Sweepstakes Check
4th of Jun, 2011 by sibleygrl
I received a letter from Direct Investments (6710 Manchester Ave, Vancouver, BC V9L 7P5), phone number 647-995-3320. Included in the letter was a prize amount for $970.00, which I successfully cashed at a check-cashing store. I don't really know what made me type the address into Google, but when I did I saw this was a scam. I just cashed the check and paid bills with the "winnings."

What is going to happen now? I'm really worried.

I got the same exact letter with a check for $996.00. I have not attempted to cash it or deposit it. I recommend that you do not deposit it into your account if you get this. There is no return address on the envelope and the check is poorly printed. The letter says that "you will be required to pay a tax and processing fee before your lump sum winning can be sent to you."
IDK but it seems very fishy considering that we didn't register for a sweepstakes.

I called the number and a person named Jamie answered with a casual "Hello, this is Jamie -------------" When I told what I was calling about she said, "Oh, can you call back in a half hour?" (She seemed to have a Jersey accent- Very Strange. Why? The company is supposedly from Canada.) Not a professional greeting for a business claiming to have your sweepstakes winnings.
