STAR CAPITAL SECURITIES INC / fraudulent winning final notificaton

Grapeland, TX, United States Review updated:
i received a ck in the amount of 4875.00 us dollars to pay the tax on 120, 125.00 in winnings sweepstakes held on may 5th in the 2nd category there is a claim number in the letter also received with the check these people need to be in prison Mr George Stanley claim agent phone # [protected] also sign by Brenda Hicks promotion manager. i think a letter should be sent out from the government warning everyone of this scam so all the people who do not have internet are aware. i would hate for someone to loose all of their savings to these jerks.

I also recieved a check for $4, 875.00. I tried to call the company to inquire but, it says the mail box is full. (Probably of complaints) I then went immediatley to the internet and looked up the company name. I knew it couldn't be true and here are all these complaints about this company. I have thrown mine away and notified my local TV station who broadcasts warnings about these types of scams.

I have also received a $ 4, 875.00 check from Star Securities as partial payment on winnings of $ 125, 000.00 but needed to pay the tax due of $ 2, 975.00 by MONEY GRAM or WESTERN UNION prior to cashing. As I have also seen on the Internet inquiry this is a "SCAM" and also will destory the $ 4, 875.00 check from Star Capital Securities and will notify local TV stations in my area.

I also got a check today for the same amount mentioned by others. No one in their right mind would believe in this scam. Everyone be aware and lets spread the word. We will not fall prey to these sick and pathetic individuals. I am concerned about the hundreds of others who are experiencing extreme hardship - a check like this might cause them to do the unthinkable.

Thanks to all of you who have posted - this reassures me that there are good-hearted, solid thinkers, and commonsensical people out there. I am glad to be a part.

My husband receive this same letter with a check, stating that he had to pay taxes of $2, 995.00 before cashing is winnings of $4, 975.00. he would receive the difference. I immediately rememember a similar situation on Judge Judy which was a scam. I search on the internet and saw all these complaints. I pray and hope that these people are not successful with scaming anyone.

I also received the letter and a check for $4, 993.00 from Capitol One Securities Inc. 3000 2nd Ave Pontiac Michigan signed by Sheila Harris for the WINNING FINAL NOTIFICATION. Looked very official and I can see where people would fall in to the scam. I work for the Police Dept and am turning mine in to our Bunco/Fraud division for further investigation. I hope everyone shares theirs with their local Police Dept also. With as many complaints I see just on this site, I can only imagine the numbers of the victims not represented here. It is our responsibility to make the law enforcement agencies aware of this, and possibly involving federal law enforcement as they are using the mail system to perpetrate their scam.
