|North American Direct Sweepstakes Consumers Promotion Inc. Sent fake check with |

|Received letter with a legit looking check with all the watermarks and safeguards. Letter was from the Consumers Promotion Inc. announcing that I won the North American Direct Sweepstakes sponsored by the Professional Insurance Company. The check was for $3987.00 and said I had to call 877-571-6411 and talk to Kim Nino to collect the rest of my $71, 000. I supposedly won the sweepstakes by shopping at Wal-mart, Sears, Home Depot, Walgreens, Target, Macy's, etc... which pretty much covers everyone in the U.S. and Canada. Oh, and I also had to wire them $2,999.80 for Non-Resident Govt. Service Tax through Western Union or Moneygram. Letter was delivered in a plain white envelope with no return address and according to the post mark, mailed from Baltimore MD. It had a regular postage stamp on it, because we all know that major businesses that mail stuff out like this use regular stamps and not postage meters...not! Check is a stolen check with a fake account number. The scam is that you deposit the $3987.00 check, wire them $2,999.80, then by the time the bank discovers it's a fake check, they charge you for the full amount plus fees, and you're also out the $2,999.80 that you wired to the thief.|
|I also received a letter with a check for $3, 987 from the company called CONSUMERS PROMOTION INC. The check itself looks pretty legit. Likely that it would bounce though. The letter came with a claim number saying that I am the lucky winner of the "UK & NORTH AMERICAN CONSUMER PROMOTIONAL" and that my entry (which I never submitted by the way) has been approved for a lump sum of $78, 000. The check for $3987 was to pay for the Non-Resident Govt. Service Tax (GST) and Insurance. Wow they've got that much money to go around giving away to random people! The internet is a great way to expose these frauds isn't it? Same phone number of 877-571-6411 for Kim Nino. |
You folks behind this scam will get caught. You can count on it.
