Customers Compensation Center C.C.C. Letter with Fake Cashier Check Tappan, New York
5th of Jun, 2011 by User733125
I received in the mail after receiving several phone calls claiming that I had won a lottery drawing. I research the company and I found out that this is a scam sending at random to people a fake check and letter claiming you have won a lottery drawing from certain company you may have purchased from (K-mart, Sears, Wal-Mart, etc.). I called the number on the letter got a man with a foreign accent requesting the claim number and that I deposit the check ($3,500) in my bank which is to pay for the tax on the winning of $50,500.00 and not to tell no one or give out the claim number and after depositing the check is to call back for further instructions. So, I thought and decided to look up the company and found several complaints about this. I scanned the check with the letter. From scanning the check into my computer there was imprinted word ("VOID") you cannot see this on the original copy, but you can see it from the scanned copy (see attached). Therefore, I want to share this information. I never entered a drawing or give out my info. Now I wondering how these people get my information which is to be secure with companies that you purchased from.

This type of scam should be reported to the US Attorney's Office, Local US Congressman, US Postal Service since it is mail fraud. Do whatever is possible to get these folks arrested. Diamond Bar, CA

I received my Award Claim Final Notification letter in the mail today. My first thought was that I did not enter any lottery, then when the letter stated for me to deposit the check and send $2500 to an unknown address, I knew it was a scam. I just scanned my check and sure enough there is VOID written all over it. I WILL report this to the authoritys. Hammond, LA

I just received this same letter today (7/25/11) with the same check. Called the same number and talked with the same man with the foreign accent. Like everyone else I thought it was too good so I decided to check up on it.

I too received the same letter today in Los Angeles, CA. I checked the bank routing number and it did not exist. In addition checked on the bank name, First Niagara to find a valid routing number. There were a couple routing numbers that were close, but no match. I did not waste more time on it.

I received the same letter and checked out the routing number of the check and the routing number is non existent. I am going to take the check and letter to First Niagra Bank and show it to them and to the police to report this scam.

I too received a similiar letter with a check of 3, 500.00 back in August 21, 2011 from Customers Compensation Center from Bonnie Wright (Promotion Manger). It was about winning a 2011 compensation Lottery Draw. First thought came to me I did not enter anything. My son thought it looked ligitimate and thought it came from due to filling out those random drawings when attending vendor shows. I decided to find out what was this about but not to give any info away about myself nor bank info either. Well I tried calling Mr. Randy Morrison, 1-647-219-7730 but got an answering service stating the customer was not available try again later. I was doing research and Thanks to this site and reading it was a scam (which my gut feeling was telling me), I will send the letter and check to the Virgnia Attorney General explaining a snake is our midst. PS. I did run a copy of the check and "VOID" was all over it.

Today (10-25-11), Check no. 3393405 drawn on PNC Wealth Management for $3, 750.00 was received and a letter annoucning that I had won $50, 500 in partnership with 20 others in a $1.11 million dollar lottery. Thankfully I searched for Customers Compesnation Lottery, 50 Central Ave. Tappan NY 10990 BEFORE I called the 1-647-829-7556...a Toronto, Canada number...letter was signed by Brandy Ferguson (Promotion Manager). Based on the complaints listed, I copied the check and sure nuff...VOID came thru loud and clear on the copy of the check! Thanks for everyone's input on this...or I might have fallen for their SCAM. Another name mentioned in this letter is Mr. Ray Martins at the phone listed...says he is the Claims/Disbursement Agent...!!!
