I just recieved a letter with a check very similar to the people above. It was for 4700 dollars and asked that I send them 2980 dollars for "government/bond fees". Then I would recieve a check for the remaining amount which would be 115300 dollars. I called the bank in which the check was from and they confirmed that it was a fraud. They informed me to never cash a check from some one you do not know and never send money to people you may not know. The below information is what was in the letter, if you recieve something similar please do not deposit the check.

I just received a check from tlc address 3400 King Ave. Toronto, On . Phone -514-621-8310. The letter read that I have become the Beneficiary of unclaimed settlement for the amount of $100.000.00. It read be advised that the enclosed check is valid only by calling our office. I also received a Signed receive With my signature on it and the date I enter the contest. It was my signature. I lost my husband from cancer to years ago and like a dummy I thought I could maybe get some extra money coming in by entering contest and sweepstakes, boy was i stupid. The check looks real but I know it isn't. Thanks for this web site. Ms Gyla Ostrander Mason, MI

Indeed this is a false company... Faygo Beverages, INC with a winnings from Fayco Securities, Inc. out of Toronto, Canada. They tell you that you have won money from De-Lotto North American and London Sweepstakes Lottery.

Remember if you never bought a ticket you cannot win the lottery!!!

These checks are bogus.. you deposit them and they will bounce and you will be liable for the bad check fees and any funds you send to anyone from the check.

Myself I turned mine over to the FBI for them to investigate as Mail Fraud.

I received a check in the amount of 3, 850.00 and for me to deposit in my bank and then call my agent back George Atwell and the check is from Bank of America, i knew for a fact it wasn't true. But how in the hell they come up with mess like this. if anyone know how to stop this scam please do so, so that other people that quite not understand wouldn't be so lucky. the phone# is listed is 1-905-781-1863 from Toronto Ont. Canada.
