I received a sweepstakes check and letter that I was a winner of 450, 000 dollars in the USA Mega. gave winning numbers and a check in the amount of 4, 500.00 dollars. told me to call and arrange details. My son found a fault complaint on the Internet with exact winning numbers and same serial number as my letter indicate was my numbers. I am 60 years old and did not appreciate the lie one bit. The check was written from: Sabillity Inc in Duluth. Ga 30097 and a company on the web. And letter was from: Sure Financial Incorporated at 812 Main Street Los Angeles, CA 90013.

My elderly mother received a check in the amount of $4, 850 to help with the processing fees for my winning sweepstakes numbers. The letter was from Sure Financial Incorporated located at 812 Main Street, Los Angeles CA 90014. The check was on a Wells Fargo, NA bank and was from Sability Inc, located at 3938 Baileycastle Court, Duluth, GA 30097. I was to contact a David Morgan (claims agent) at 1-604-375-0510. Thank goodness my mom is able to spot things that seem too good to be true so she gave me the letter and check to research. What a scam!!! I will be turning this info over to Wells Fargo Fraud unit tomorrow morning.

I recieved a check as well here in Ohio.The first thing i thought was to pay my tithes so as a young, single parent of two stepping out on faith for a financial blessing and you want to play with fake claims agent "vengeance is mine" says the LORD.Therfore at the end of your life these checks your company wants to play around with Will have to be answered for.Also remember karma is generational.

Rickesia Moon ~ Pay your what? Titties? You're talking about "blessings" & "The Lord"? You have 2 children out of wedlock, AND you had a boob job when you can't even afford to take care of your two ### children? AND you want to pay for it with a phony sweepstakes check? WOW, you sound like a real winner... You go girl...About time for a new weave and some Mickey D's for dinner, huh?

Take the check to Wells Fargo, they will be able to tell you if it's a scam.

My husband also received a letter from Sure Financial Incorporated in Los Angeles, CA and a check for $4, 850.00 from Oliver Sprinkler Co., Inc. in King Of Prussia, PA with the same instructions except the agent's name to contact was David Williams. The check was a Wachovia Bank check so that was a red flag that something was not right. Also, my husband and I had not entered any sweepstake drawing, so how could we be a winner. I called Wells Fargo and gave them the check number and they said it wasn't a real check number and that it was a scam. They also said if we had cashed the check for $4, 850.00 and sent the $4, 100.00 to the address listed, the check would bounce and not only would we be out of $4, 100.00 but we would be responsible to pay the bank $4, 850.00 which would be $8, 950.00 we would be out of. These people are big time crooks and should be arrested!

This comment is for Uhhhh, yea. In defense of Rickesia Moon, she said the money was going to pay for tithes (church contributions) not titties. Evidently you don't attend church if you don't know the difference between tithes and titties or you may need to get a new pair of reading glasses at your next visit to Walmart.

I opened my mail today and I also got a check for4, 850.00 mine came from Sure Financial Incorporated. It said I won 450, 000.00. What a rotton thing to do to someone. I wish these people could get into big trouble. Mine is for the Wachovia Bank, N.A. It says on the check, Oliver Sprinkler., INC. 501 Feheley Drive.King OF PRessi, , PA 19406-2690. i WIsh someone could catch these rotton ###. What a bunch of rotton people, they are to lazy to work., so they try scamming people. I hope God punishes them.

I also received a check for $4, 850.00 yesterday, from Oliver Sprinkler Co., Inc 501 Feheley Drive King of Pressia, PA 19406-2690 along with a letter from SureFinancial Incorporated 812 Main Street, Los Angeles CA 90014 saying that I won a 2nd prize of the USA Mega Sweepstake, I never participated in this sweepstake. They alleged that the amount on this check would pay the processing fee in order to receive a prize of $450, 000.00. By the way, at the envelope, the mail stamp says that this letter came from Portugal. It is obvious that this is a fake check' since is says Wachovia Bank, NA and this bank is now Wells Fargo, this is a federal crime, I will turn this check to Wells Fargo on Monday so they can investigate this.

Awww what a drag. I guess they got me too. I got a check for $3, 650.00. I received this check in the mail with a letter stating that I was a sweepstakes winner for shopping at Walmart or Sears. Same name on it. Sability Inc. The check also shows to be from Wells Fargo who I bank with. i was excited too. LOL!!! The bad thing about it is that it's a real check. Shows the watermark and everything else that a company check would have. Except the attached document that usually comes with a paycheck..

We received a check for $ 2, 770 drawn on Wells Fargo as as a respond to "mystery shopper" job offer, with instruction what to do. It screamed "FRAUD". But instead ignoring it, we checked on the company out in several places on the Internet. The people behind this have tried to make them look legitimate, smart enough that some people may get hurt in this trap!
We called the FBI. They are doing nothing about it! So we turned the check over to a Wells Fargo official. They have ways to follow up with this. If you ever get anything like this in the mail, we suggest to follow our example, however, you sure can do what you think is right.

I just received the $2, 770 check and to kindy e-mail bradballs@one.co.il and knew it was a scam the company that sent it was
Stepanie Eisengerg from American Metal Stamping in Brooklyn NY. I contacted Wells Fargo and you can send the information to their fraud department at reportphish@wellsfargo.com. This is very stupid on their part. The phone number is 770-495-0044 for the Sability Inc. I am waiting for a phone call from them.

Yesterday, I also received a check from Sure Financial Incorporated. They sent me a check for $3, 455.00 and said it was to pay for processing fees. They said I had won $250, 000.00 in European, African and USA consumer sweepstakes. I am taking the check to my Wells Fargo bank this morning and taking all steps to get these scam artists. Our economy is very bad and scams like these get peoples hope up, just to be ripped off in the end. So very wrong. Look out Sure Financial, Your in my sights.
