Zenith Trust - Fraudulent Check
I received a letter four days ago with a sticker label of my name and address, and a stamp from Canada with a little animal on skies that did not have a postal mark.
I just opened it today before shredding it. I about fell off the chair as these was a letter telling me I won $85000.00 in an annual promotional drawing held on April 8th, 2009, and the enclosed check for $4930.05 was to pay non-resident Government Service Tax of Canada.
After the buzz from hyper-ventilating, I thought I should check this out and sure enough I found two other complaints, one said to turn it over to an attorney, which I may do, but I think I am going to talk with the authorities first as there are finger prints all over the check.
If you get one of these checks, or any other check from any company that you are not expecting then please go to https://www.complaintsboard.com
to see if it is there, or check the Better Business Bureau (BBB), or contact the bank that supposedly issued the check, if there are listed sponsors than contact them to see what they may know about it.
