Sweepstakes Draw / Scam
I received a letter to inform me of the release of a Sweepstakes Draw from Reader's Digest held on February 2012. I was among the finalist playing 6000 full tickets and that I had won a lump sum payout of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (500, 000) To start this claim I was directed to use a check that was enclosed from Geico General Insurance to cover any charges that may be required before you receive your funds. I was instructed to call an agent of Geico Insurance Mr. Joseph Baker at [protected] to begin to activate the claim before you deposit the check. When you call the number you are asked to send money in advance of depositing the check. The check is bogus, the letter I received is a scam to fleece money from me. Geico General Insurance is being misrepresented in this scam.
Please circulate this so others who receive such Bogus Mail don't fall for this scam using Reader's Digest and Geico General Insurance.
