North American Sweepstakes Commission / Sweepstakes scam
Received a letter regarding the "winning", and that I was entitled to $55, 000.oo. Had received a check for $3750.00, which I deposited only, after calling the Claim Analyst who stated that once I deposited or cashed the check, to contact her so that she could connect me with a tax agent, and pay taxes toward the full amount in order to receive the remainder of the amount. Seemed fishy because of grammatical errors and the process of paying taxes as opposed to receiving the lump amount, or in installments, and personally being in charge of claiming taxes. Checked it out under the title of the North American Sweepstakes Commission, and found the website that stated all this as a scam almost to the very amount. Check looked legitimate under Bank of America heading.
