I got the same letter and check for $4875.00 from Star Capital Securities. This check was drawn on Premier Bank in St Charles, MO. I called the bank and talked to a representative. I gave her the company name, Star Capital Securities, Inc and the checking account number, 065655 086506793 841005. She informed me that it, in fact, was a fraud and if the check was deposited in my account they would not honor the funds. She also indicated that she had received several other inquiries like mine and told them the same information. I proceeded to call the claim agent from Star Securities, Carol Armstrong. I told her that I had received the winning notification and I wanted to know what to do next. She explained that I needed to deposit the check and call her back to obtain further information. I explained to her that I had called the bank that the check was drawn on and found out it was a fraud. I asked her to explain why they said that and she hung up the phone on me which just further validated my suspicions. Don't be taken in by this scam. You will loose a lot of money and maybe more.
This could be considered grand theft and should be dealt with.
