North American Awards Claim Department / Scamming US Funds
Today i received a check and a letter from this company in the amount of $4.950.00 and that it was a Lottery winnings and had the numbers that i picked. I never bought a lottery ticket in Canada, from (Niagara Casino) i was told to call [protected] and speak to Mr. Steve Edwards, I called the number and was told that i had to deposit this check and immediately go to Western Union or Money gram and send them $2.950.00 for Taxes on my winnings. When i called i was also instructed not to deposit it into my Citi-Bank account and that Citi-Bank could not write the certified check back to them. on the bottom of the check was a remitted by section with a company name, ( North American Logistics) [protected]) written on it, so i called them to ask if this check was good, they put a Manager on the phone who told me that this check was not there check and the routing numbers were not theirs. So i called back the company who sent me the check and was told now that there was no Mr. Steve Edwards there and they new nothing about this check. What a scam for Xmas, i will be forwarding this check to the Better Business Division here and in Canada. So people don't let this company do this to us, if you get one or anything like it, Please check it out first. I will also be contacting a lawyer to see what can be done to this company. I will also fill out a Police claim report and see if my Local Police have an anti scam division to report these people to & hopefully they will go to Jail & stop scamming people. I for one just had a triple Bypass & a stroke. Limited assets and almost fell for this. Not nice. I hope they Get what they deserve.
