Shoppers Point of Sale Sweepstakes Shoppers Direct Received a letter w/claim and batch #, check drawn on Wells Fargo, which looked real, in the amount
26th of Aug, 2011 by User517888
Received a letter postmarked from Canada saying that I was one of twenty winners from Shoppers Point of Sale Sweepstakes from the UK. Enclosed was a ck in the amt. of 1790.00 drawn on Wells Fargo, branch from the state I reside, it looked legit. Letter went on to say that I was to deposit ck and then call Mark McDonald 647-995-4538 m-sat. He would instruct me on how send 1025.00 for ins. and handling. This was part of 65k sweepstake that I had won, I had 7 days to reply. Being aware of scams where a person cashes a ck. then forwards certified funds for some sort of services or winnings and then afterwards their ck bounces I decided to call first. I spoke to Mr. McDonald who had a very thick Nigerian accent and was hard to hear since there were so much noise from other operators. He was put out that I had not deposited the ck first but did explain that when shopping at McDonalds, Walmart,Kmar, etc. you automatically entered into a sweepstakes and I had a certified ck waitin for the remaining 63k. When I questioned where he was talking to me from and that he did not talk w/American accent he became very irrate and put me on the defensive saying that I had something against someone who was not American. Telling me that he would give my winings to a charity since I did not need the money. Then canceled the claim # and hung up. Boy am I glad that I did not run to the bank w/their check.
