Transglobal Security International / fraudulent prize letter (?)

1 5010 48th Ave., P.O. Box 308Delta, British Columbia, Canada Review updated:
Contact information:
Phone: none provided

I received a letter on Dec. 2, 2008 signed by Jason Richter (Property Securement Officer). The letter stated that I am advised to respond immediately as property has been assigned to me: a 2008 Nissan 350Z, shipment schedule KZ2548P7. The letter also indicatyed that I could receive the $27, 980.00 in cash instead of the car. There was also a property manifest no. indicated: [protected]. The instructions on the letter stated that the return form must be accompanied by 20 (pounds?) to be valid. The letter appears very professional (although it is not dated) with a very detailed advertisement of the vehicle on the reverse side. This is obviously a scam. This organization needs to be stopped as it may appear very believable to some. They should be stopped from obtaining addresses and personal information. Please investigate and let me know the outcome if you can. Thank you.

    I received the same doc.
    However I read the fine print which is interesting, see below ...
    (my caps)
    "Vehicle or cash equivalent referenced herein constituted the MAXIMUM of Multiple properties available for procurement"

    If you also read the terms & conditions you'll see more detailed info wrt the properties available. You can enquire with their customer service & find out what your property will be as items are predetermined.

    So you probably will recieve some cheap electronic device, which is one of the Multiple properties available less than the MAXIMUM property (car). If this is for real someone may actually recieve a car* if they meet all conditions (* plus shipping bill etc)

    So buyer beware, and you get what you pay for, they are not promising to send you a car, just promising to send you something less than or equal to a car in value. Who know if they have a car to give away but they probably have a truck load of cheap stuff!

    Hi, my name is Danny, I have received similar letter regarding $3, 687, 254.00 to be sent to me as soon as I sign and return form with $30.00 .
    to Dept. Of Finance, ADO, P.O.Box 97201 Station Main, Richmond, BC, V6X 8H3, Canada. The letter is signed by a Director but his name is not printed anywhere and the letter is not dated. Think I will sign and return the payout document release with a statutory declaration allowing them to reduce MY $3mil. by $30.00 to cover release cost. I'm in Australia and it is 21st. October 2010.

    G'day, my name is Mark and I too received a similar letter regarding $3, 687.254.00 to be sent to me as soon as I signed and returned $30 release fee for 'secure processing and immediate processing' to the Dept. of Finance, ADO PO Box 97201, Station Main, Richmond, BC, V6X OG8, Canada. This letter is signed by the Director, yet their name is not to be found nor the date of the letter - there is only a reference to 2010 Payout Verification. The promise is that I will not receive any further communication if I don't respond 'at once'. Well hope so! I too am from Down Under (Australia) and it is 3rd November 2010.

    Hi I am Judi from Australia I received the same letter thinking oh what alot of money I was going to send back the letter saying take out the $30.00 from my winnings then thought this is [censor] why me . $30.00 isnt a lot of money but if everybody sent it away it would mount up for the con artists, how can they do this to people, lucky for the internet it saved me but what about the elderly and people who havent the internet who would jump at the oppotunity and send the $30.00 away.

    Hi, I am also in Australia and just received in the mail yesterday my letter for $3, 687, 254.00 if I send $30 for them to document and release a report on my winnings. I have recently purchased European Lottery tickets and am wondering if these people have some access to my details from this. I have sent back my release form (without the $30.00) with a comment that they have been discovered and reported to the proper authorities as scammers.
