Since I am "joint" on my elderly mother's account, I checked it for Global Reporting debits. Sure enough, there it was debiting the account for varying amounts over the last 2 months. Will be contacing the bank on the next business day to have this vendor blocked from making the fraudulent debits. Make sure to block the vendor and not the amount. If they change the amount the debit will go through, you must block the vendor (Global Reporting). In addition, report this as fraud to the bank.

Same thing happened to my 94 yr old mom. Went to the bank to file fraud charges and called the company. Was told the $3.25 check she sent authorized them to deduct the money from her account. The fraud charges I filed at the bank was no help. The bank sent me a letter saying they were unable to substantiate my claim and concluded that no error occurred. Way to go PNC. Will close the account now.

I am so angry after reading these reports. I have power of attorney on my dad and noticed the unauthorized withdraws, too.

This is a dangerous scam aimed for the elderly who are not computer saavy and cannot read their bank statements due to blindness who are being robbed!

All of these sweepstake companies should be run out of town!
I called the Bank of America and filed a fraud vendor but the only to stop any more illegal withdraws is to close out the checking account and STOP the elderly from sending checks to these people. The W.W.II generation do not understand how electronic banking works. Sometimes it could be a pain the neck if it's in the wrong hands. I am so sorry for the folks like my dad who have been robbed of their retirement funds one $11.00 withdraw at time.
Eddie B. - p.s. - I hope Global and the rest of these sweepstake bull crappers - burn in Hell.

I too recieved a letter...and told to send a $3.25 check to start proceedings(which I did not), for the amount of prize money ($125, 000.00 monthly prize claim) or ($1, 500, 000.00 annual prize)mentioned...I'm so glad I went online, for more info on the prize or winnings and more info on the company involved...I really wasn't surprised finding others with the same offer, and revealing the awful truth that it's a scam...and to beware! Thanks for the warning!

Received the letter 12/14/2011...soon as I saw send $3.25 I knew it was a scam. Also in the right hand corner of letter under where your signature is it says "I hereby authorize GRN to debit my checking account for $3.25 for the initial report and $39 recurring annually until I cancel my subscription." What the hell is the initial report? They also try to make the letter so official looking. No one should ever have to send in money to receive a Sweepstakes or Lottery! These people should be put in prison, I hope they catch them soon...Thank you to the person who googled the address on the iphone & found no such address. There are still good people out there watching out for others! Always beware! Thanks!

thanks guys !!! they had me going for a minute.. I was so excited until i saw the 3.25 and then was like something isn't right but still was hoping it was true!!! than i called the customer service and she was like were not a scam we send u a booklet full of coupon prizes up to that amount for u to pick from. what is up with that? you get to take money out of my account for months on hand while i get a booklet for .50 off of things i might not use in the future. these people are sick please tell everyone u know to report and lets close them down.

I receive this magazine and I find it very informative as far as a sweepstakes player. I sent in my personal check for 3.25 and signed and mailed back the order form giving them permission to take 39.00 a year for my magazine. Is it possible that you all did not read the order form? I haven't experienced any other drafts from them that were not authorized. I am 26 years old and not too sure why this is aimed at elderly as I am not. I just wanted to let everyone know that I have had a positive history with this company.
