I RECEIVED A LETTER DATED 11/24/2008 THAT I WAS THE WINNDER OF THE ATS PRODUCTS CONTEST. I WAS APPROVED FOR A LUMP SUM OF US$99, 000.000. THIS IS DISTURBING TO ME, ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS IS THE BALANCE ON MY HOME AND THE LETTER WAS IN MY NAME THAT I HAVE NOT HAVE FOR 5 YEARS. SO DOES THIS MEAN SOMEONE IS TAPPING IN TO OUR CREDIT, ACCOUNTS, ETC. A CHECK WAS SENT FOR $4, 900.00 TOBE ACTIVATED AND I NEEDED TO CALL GARY JAMES OR EDNA KING. VERY RUDE PEOPLE!!! THE LETTER ALSO SIGNED OR SHOULD I SAY STAMPED BY RB HAYES BUT UNDER IT THERE IS A NAME OF ROBERT ANDERSON, THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF HIM. THIS IS OKAY, THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT, THIS HAS BEEN FORWARDED TO MY ATTORNEY !!

I got a similar letter yesterday. Being suspicious by nature and from working in the financial industry for over 12 years, the whole thing reeked. I called the # in the letter, asking a lot of tough questions about the alleged contest I won, the check, the fees they wanted for "winning" etc. The gentleman "Gary" swore up and down that everything was legit -- he even went as far as suggesting that I take the check to a check cashing place and getting cash for it instead of depositing it... and when I said I wouldn't pay any fees, he said he'd "waive" that requirement.

The bank listed on the check just happens to be the same bank I use so I turned the check over to them at lunch today. They are sending it to corporate fraud. They say the account on the check is real but the company listed on the check is not the account holder. They said that if they research the check and it is "real", they'll call me to come get the money. Not holding my breath.

Just thought I'd share.

I wouldn't worry about the amount cause I got the same letter for the 99, 000 amount. Looks like a form letter they send to everyone.
