North American Awards Claim Department / Scamming US Funds

1 Brooklyn, NY, United States Review updated:

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.

Today I recieved a Check in the amount of $4'980.40 and a letter in the mail. I was told to call 1-646-205-2885 and ask to speak to Mr. John Adams who told me I was to cash the check and go to a moneygram center and send $2'950 to a Ms.Linda Abraham in New York, New York and that within 24 hours I would recieve a total of $45, 000 for using my mastercard debit card at Wal-Mart store in Clearfield Pa. He read off my debit card # and asked if it was correct and I told him it was. When I went to the bank to cash the check they told me it was a fraudulant check. Now becuase of this I have had to cancel my card and have to wait for a new. I am a single mom of three children and almost completed there scam cycle if not for my bank being able to detect the fraud check. So be on the look out and if in doubt go to your bank and ask them.
