I received a Final Prize Notification letter today from Golden Reward, Inc. along with a check for $4850.00, representing the initial payment of a $185, 000.00 sweepstakes prize that I won.

The check is drawn off of an account for Key Resources, Inc., 3703-A W. Market Street, Greensboro, NC 27403. The bank name is Suntrust Bank, Greensboro NC 27408. ABA number [protected] account number [protected]. The letter says to contact my tax agent to activate the check before it can be deposited It also asks for prepayment of a non residential tax in the amount of $3740.00 by using Money Gram electronic money transfer before the remainder of the prize amount can be paid out.

I've read about these types of scams before however never saw it in person until now. In these times of trouble for so many this is a disgrace and the perpetrators should be processed to the fullest extent of the law.

This company is on the move but they still do the same thing. They send a check, tell u to pay the tax and tell you to call them. What stop me was the fact that i don't remember entering any contest. So if you don't remember entering anything do your research first.

The company also makes it very easy to see that they are fake just by the letter they send. The 1st thing you should notice is the fact that the letter doesn't look professional at all, and also notice that they automatically tell you that this is your final notice. If you haven't received any other notices, why would they send you a final one. Also, they tell you that you have won a lump sum, big money prizes like this give you an option. They ask you if you want the lump sum or if you want the payment in installments. Finally why do you pay a tax agent all the way in canada, but the bank that wrote the check is in this country.

So in closing if you did deposit the check with out do some research until now, then sorry to say your a dumbass. Hopefully if you still have the check in your hand, then i would shred it and the note, but before you do give the company and the bank a call and report it to them. Don't call Golden rewards, cause they never pick up.

Golden Rewards Inc - Fraud

I recieve a letter today from Golden rewards Inc. Ajax Ontario, Canada The letter had a check enclosed in the amount of 1750.50 from a Bank in texas, It told me all I had to do was deposit the check, and once it had cleard i was to Moneygram 950.00 to cover the "non residential" fees after which I would recieve by certifed check, or other options, and would recieve a lump sum of $89, 500 dollars,

so, luckily in the age of internet, i googled the company name, I heard the videos of persons who had been scammed by this co before, and I am so gratefull, that i did not deposit this,

BECAUSE THE CHECK WILL CLEAR AT FIRST, THEN ONCE U WIRE THE MONEY, FOR TAX, THEN YOUR BANK WILL COME AFTER YOU FOR THE FULL AMOUMNT OF THE INITIAL CHECK.

I AM SO GLAD i FOUND THIS OUT, BEFORE I TRIED TO DEPOSIT IT, I AM REALLY SADDENED THAT IN THIS ECONOMY AND HOW WE ARE STRUGGLING SOMEONE COULD GIVE U HOPE LIKE THIS, AND THEN, HAVE THEM DASHED
