We received a letter and a check for the sum of $4, 920 supposedly we had won some lotto contest and were instructed to contact a Ray Smith (wow how common!!) the letter has so much mispellings you thought a 3rd grader wrote it, well nice try whoever is trying to pull off this type of scam. We mailed the letter a check back to the address with a nice little note!!! unfortunately there is no way fot the goverment to monitor these type of activity... or is there????

    ALERT: There is no legitimate reason why anyone would provide you with a check or money order and ask you to wire money anywhere in return. If you have received a USGA check for any amount of money as a winner in a lottery drawing or for any other reason and have been asked to wire money back — it is a scam. Do not cash the check. If you cash this check you will be responsible to the bank for these funds.

    Contact the USGA Legal Department at (908) 234-2300 or Michael Swangler of U.S. Secret Service (USSS) at for further information.

    I also recieved a check from standard trust . Food Galore & Sterling Bank NJ were the company names, in the amount of 4, 920.00 with a letter stating that I had to send 3, 450.00 through money gram to pay gov't taxes. I decided to take the check to a local check cashing establishment so that my bank account couldn't be accessed since I didn't know where the check was from. I'm very upset, especially during these hard financial times that our country is experiencing. I'm gong to cantact the authorities and many local news carrires.
