FOREX FINANCIAL SERVICESfraud/scam ect...

I see alot of people on here talking of the forex financial USA MEGA international sweepstakes and it appears to me that this is not going to stop the checks from still coming to your house unfortunately the scam is still going on, me and my girlfriend recieved the same crap in the mail about 3 days ago and blah blah with the 4800$ to help pay taxes ect.. Well first off I understand that alot of american people are struggling due to an unstable economy and that is where this gets you because most people that are getting the checks are really happy to see that amount of money and the first thing they do is start to rattle off ideas of what there going to buy, spend it on or whatever it may have you and completely disregarding the letter and shoot straight to there bank or local check cashing facility hoping they are about to have some full pockets. But then the check is deemed fraud and become arrested for the fraud and sad to say this is a federal offense and all of the fees of the banks or whatever financial services was used in the process. Let me help you figure this out

First on the appearance of the check it looks legit they even go as far as having watermarks but anything can be done if the knowledge is there.

Next look for any sort of typos or things of that nature on the check because 9 times out of 10 most fraud checks contain typos or mistypes because the scammer recieved your info from a third party 99.9% of the time they got from the internet.

Now the next thing you need to look for is the company who is dishing out the money like mine had a company NPG CABLE, INC after you locate that do a google search on that company now why in the hell would a company that does cable like tv, phone, internet ect... be sending me money? Second of all they are not advertising anything about it or for that matter even know about it period.

Now the final thing that everyone needs to know is that it says (international sweepstakes) that's a huge throw off for me because when you are an american citizen it is illegal to play any lottery's out of the country that also is federal offense.
OH ONE MORE THING I UNDERSTAND THAT ROUTING NUMBERS CAN BE CHECKED VIA INTERNET AND LET ME TELL YOU THE ROUTING NUMBER ON THE CHECK THAT I RECIEVED WAS ACCEPTED. THAT MEANS NOTHING IT IS STILL A FRAUD REGARDLESS PLS READ THIS AND KEEP IT IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND INCASE A CHECK SHOWS UP AT YOUR DOORSTEP

    Keep calling the claims agent pretending that you are a new receiver of the letter. Make him "think" that you are sending the money how he tells you to send it. Do this over and over again with new information so that he spends his whole day trying to track down money that he will never recieve.

    12/29/11------I agree with everything that has been said, in all the complaints, I too received a check in the amount of$4, 850.00 from (Tenant Lease Security, 277 Park Avenue New York, N.Y. 10172) drawn on Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.letter goes on to say, contact claims agent-Allen Newman @[protected], the Promotion Mgr. is Paul Sanders. I did call the claims agent (heavy accent) & very, Very rude, he don't like being questioned, I asked, if this was a scam, he said (No), I told him it was and that I was reporting them the agency (Government), etc. he hung up. People be ware, these scams are trying to get you anyway that can, via mail, email, phone, don't fall for the OK-DOK, they are doing everything they can the duke you of your hard earned MONEY. Besides if you cash these checks they are sending you, you will be at fault, own money to the bank and will go to JAIL. THIS IS ALL A FRAUD...

    I received two checks within a matter of one week. Both checks were written on the United States Stove Company and the same bank - Sun Trust Bank in tact with routing numbers and accounts numbers that are verified over the telephone. However, I went directly to Sun Trust Bank with the check, letter and envelope and spoke with a bank officer. The bank officer also verified that the funds were available, however, the company name on the account did not match. I turned the check, letter and envelope over to the bank and will do the same with the new one I received. I would hope that there is something the banks can do, but now check card stock can be purchased at your local Office Depot and so the advent of technology makes it look authentic and legitimate to the untrained eye.

    I received one of these checks as well. How scary! I call the guy and he tells me to go to the bank and cash it and then call him! Unreal... yeah I'll just call and let you know that I just cashed a fraudulent check so that you can send the police to arrest me... so sad...
