Golden Rewards Inc — scam
I received a Final Prize Notification letter today from Golden Reward, Inc. along with a check for $4850.00, representing the initial payment of a $185, 000.00 sweepstakes prize that I won.
The check is drawn off of an account for Key Resources, Inc., 3703-A W. Market Street, Greensboro, NC 27403. The bank name is Suntrust Bank, Greensboro NC 27408. ABA number [protected] account number [protected]. The letter says to contact my tax agent to activate the check before it can be deposited It also asks for prepayment of a non residential tax in the amount of $3740.00 by using Money Gram electronic money transfer before the remainder of the prize amount can be paid out.
I've read about these types of scams before however never saw it in person until now. In these times of trouble for so many this is a disgrace and the perpetrators should be processed to the fullest extent of the law.
