United Trust ann Finance INC / attempted scam/fake check
My grandmother nearly sent $100 to a company claiming she had won $250, 000. Originally, she had received a check for $4885, a check that was to be used to pay "Government Taxes" and was to be subtracted from her winnings. Several red flags begin to arouse my suspicion.
First, the company insisted that she "NOT TELL ANYONE" about her winnings. Second, the company was extremely eager to receive their $100 processing fee. And third, the company's representative suggested that she lie to Western Union/Moneygram when sending the money, suggesting she knew a man named "Shevon Gordon, " a purported resident of Jamaica.
BE CAREFUL EVERYBODY. Remember, when something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And always, always, always be suspicious when anybody asks you to send them $100 and "DON'T TELL ANYBODY!"
