Midass financial inc / sweepstakes ripoff
I received a letter in the mail yesterday stating that I won 250, 000 in a sweepstakes. In the letter was a check for 4975.00. The letter also stated that before I did anything with the check I needed to contact Mr. Richard Morgan, and then send 2950.00 through money gram or western union. After speaking to my family and doing some research on the company Midass Financial Inc and found nothing, I called the Bank that the check was drawn from. After speaking to a very nice lady, she informed me that the account number was fake, and said she unfortunately could not do anything about it because it was the scammers figure of speech. I then did a Google search and found another person in the Dallas area that got the same letter on the same day!!! I am happy that I caught the scam, and feel very sorry for the people who did not.
