A letter notifying me of my winnings and a check for $4, 875.00 was sent. The letter informed me that the check was to cover the government taxes, on my total winnings of $125, 000.00. The notification informed me NOT to deposit the check until I had called the number provided. When I called the number, I was instructed to speak to Mr. George Stanley (claim agent). He instructed me to then deposit the check, get a moneygram or western union amount of $2, 975.00. I was then to call him back so that he could instruct me on where to send the ' Government Taxes'. Once that money was received First Capital Securities Inc. would issue the remaining balance of my winnings, $120, 125.00.
