North American Lottery CorporationTaxes problem!

They tell me I have won $33,00.00 dollars, and I need to pay the taxes. They tell me they use the "Name Data Base Ballot System" which is provided by Credit Cards, and telephone services. It describes the sponsoring company, "EH GRiffith Inc," whom I e-mailed and they stated they were not sponsors and that the said company was fraudulently using their checks/letter heads. The letter that was included also stated I had to call "Mr. Kevin Luna" at "[protected]," "he will validate the check, after that proceed to your bank and make a deposit." It is signed, "David West, Promotion Manager."

    I also got this letter just two days ago, but I have someone in the banking business. She told me to open a new account with the check once everything clears (that is when the bank that it is drawn off of clears it to yours) withdraw all money and close account. We will see what happens. Yours Truly a concerned U.S. citizen

    We received a check for $3755.50 and were told we won $55, 500 in the 2010 North American Lottery - New York Casino category. We were one of twenty winners splitting $1.11 million dollars. When we called Zack Usman as directed we were told to deposit the check and another check would be mailed to us shortly.

    We then called the organization the check was drawn on, AD Market Place and they told us the check was a fraud and that they had not been located at the address on the check in over one year. They took down the information and advised us not to cash the check as it was a fraud. Thank God we checked it out.

    I received a check for, 5, 160 dollars from North-American Sweepstakes Marketing and Airmiles. Just like the rest of the complaints I was suppose to call Gordon Moore who also sounded like a foreigner, he went through this whole spill about what I had won and asked me if I had the check, I said yes I do, he said well go ahead and deposit it and then call me back thats when I proceeded to tell him that I had already took the check to the bank and the bank caught it as a fraudulent check and would not allow it to be processed. What I did not tell the crook on the other end of the line was that my fiance had received a similar check from a similar company before christmas well unfortunatly it went through and was not discovered as fraud ubtil more then a week latter, we had used some of the money but had not sent it western Union as instructed, howeve it did cause and overdraft in his acount about 1000. dollars. Lesson Learned and we are much wiser for it. I hope they catch these people and throw under the jail. Taking advantage of people in these hard economic times is vicious. be careful out there.

    I received the same letter in the mail yesterday with a check for $4900. It said that i had been elected to receive a lump sum payment for $900, 000. So you know of course my eyes lit up. So i called the Arab or Indian ### what ever he is. He told me to cash the check, and call him back the next day at 4 pm. so i thought for a min. and i talked to my ole lady and figured out that its a fraud. I didnt cash the check but i told him i did. Im gonna call him back tomorrow just to see what he says. they wanna play games with me i can do the same and in the process try and get there location. Im a retired vet. I have time! Dont these sons of b#@#$s know we are still in a recession people are doin bad right now.

I pray the word gets out so much that these people don't have a chance to run this fraud on anyone else. When we teach our kids our ABC's we must teach them about these scams also.

    Baby... I am laughing but I am not tickled! I too have recieved a check and a letter from North American Lottery Inc. dated Sept. 21, 2009. I too recognized a few "red flags" off the top. For one, I haven't signed up for any online lottery. Second, it was written out to me in my maiden name, which I haven't used in 4 yrs. Third, the letter mentions nothing about the company who issued the check (JSS Corp., Inc. Souza's Heating & Air Conditioning, 50 Lots Hollow Rd., Orleans, Massachutsetts 02653). I wasn't alarmed by the amount of the check ($4, 850.00) but then the letter stated I was 1 of 5 winners of a $500, 00.00 prize and that I should send $3800.00 by Moneygram or Western Union to cover government taxes. Yet it does not mention in the letter to whom I would send it to. Then, after my winnings have been processed I would be sent a final check in a lump sum payment of $95, 1500.00 delivered by Fed Ex or UPS. I mean are they confused about the company they would choose to deliver the final check?

    Anyway, I knew it in my spirit this was a scam. But just for entertainment purposes I went on and called the claim agent, Mr. Paul Anderson at [protected]/[protected]. He sounded like I had woke him up out of a deep sleep. After I guess he wiped the matter out of his eyes, this fool gone ask me "when I got the check and did I deposit it?" And after I told him I had not yet deposited it in my account, he instructed me to do so and call him back in the morning because he couldn't get into the system and he would inform me on the company and what to do next. I ask him was this a scam and of course he said "No!" Thank You JESUS FOR GOOD SENSE AND THE INTERNET THAT BACKS IT UP!!!

    GOD'S GOT A BLESSING WITH OUR NAME ON IT... BUT THIS JUST AINT IT!!!

    PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE!!!

    WAIT ON IT, STAY IN FAITH, AND BE OF GOOD COURAGE...IT WILL NOT TARRY!!!

    Received a letter from True Financial Services of Toronto, Canada, dated August 31, 2009 stating I won $100, 000 USD. They sent a check for $4850. They asked me to send a Moneygram or Western Union for $3800 to Jane Adams, 41 Queen Street, Niagara Falls, Ontario L4P-1W5. All phone calls are with "Paul Anderson" a very fast-talking Indian or Arab man. Said they were affiliated with North American Lotteries. One phone already disconnected. I stated the bank's recommendation that I wait 10 business days to send the check, and he said the check is good, you should send the Moneygram today to keep your claim active.

    I recieved a letter from "Sun Financial Services" of 627 Bay Street, Toronto Ontario Canada. It is Sept. 11th, 2009 the letter is dated August 27th, 2009... That was my first clue that this was likely not legit. I also stated that I was a winner of 100, 000.00 from a drawing held on July 20th, 2009 in "the 2nd Category." Another clue that this was a scam was that it was shared and presented among 4 other declared winners indicating that their prizes had already been claimed and awarded so I questioned why me being the fifth... what such a delay? The check looks valid, watermarks, security features. The company that is is written from is Forty Five Ten, Inc. which is a clothing establishment in Dallas Texas, the address matches and everything, but why would a clothing store that I'd never heard of be issuing and lottery winning? My "Claims Affiliate" is "Debbie Vincent" whom I googled, and appears that someone of that name does work for JPMorgan Chase Bank so someone is doing a very good job of covering their tracks. My "government tax" amount was 3800.00 which was well less that the 38% the government requires for bonus or winnings which was also a HUGE RED FLAG. and was signed Mrs. Mora Goland (Promotion Manager) I'm contacting my local Attorney General office, Better Bussiness Bureau and anyone else who will listen including local TV Stations. These people need to be caught and prossecuted for any of these bogus letters who they have profited from. It took several google searches to find this website... but I'm glad I didn't give up at finding the company and bank were valid. This is scary stuff.

    Ditto for us in Park Hills, MO. The check is $4800 to cover the taxes on $100, 000. Check is drawn on Commerce Bank-Texas and the letter is signed by Mrs. Dora Freeland and we are supposed to call Mr. Adam Jaga. We have forwarded the check to our local newspaper for their on-going scam reports along with contacting The Missouri Stae Attorney GeneraL. To North American Lottery Inc., a great big, fat, middle finger.

    I Received a letter stating I won certain Amount of Money, I Know that I do play Internet lottery. I take It to the bank, the bank could not obtain information about the Check, Plus the letter do not have a Seal all Company have a seal, by Law. There game, is it a teller to to not obtain information on the check and put it into your account, such as citi-bank that give you partly some money, you in return give them your social security number and Bank account number to add the rest of money they claim you won, they have computer software, and information to take all of your money off your account. You will then have to repay the Bank for that money that the Atm give you. Do not fall for it. The FBI need to get involve, Take these organization down. It is causing the bank to investigate, the individuals account that is being affected, and the Government money .

    I, too, received this "winning notification" in the mail. My letter stated that I had won $100, 000 out of $500, 000 and should send the "tax money" by moneygram or Western Union in order to receive the rest of my "winnings". Along with this letter, I have a check for $4, 800. I'm glad I was curious enough to find this site. The first clue for me, as a teacher, was that they even spelled their company name wrong on the check! The put PROOERTY instead of PROPERTY. Then my second clue was that the signature on the bottom of the letter looked nothing like the printed name. The letterhead on my letter was THE CLEARING HOUSE, 450 Bay.Street.Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Phone number is [protected]. Thanks to others like me, I will be turning this over to our local FBI office. Thanks also for Annette's number. I think I'll start with her. Good luck to all of you. I hope this guy is caught soon.

    People about this scam PLEASE call this number we are investigating this matter the guy and his nerve of still answering the phone and still acting like we are winners shocks me and infuriates me. Not knowing any better we deposited the check in the bank and waited two days went by and finally we went to use our credit card we were told it was declined we called the bank and they said the bank was counterfeit. We had to go to the bank and the froze my Girlfriends account, and closed it. she has been a customer to this bank for 10 years. Then to top it off she had checks sout to pay bills and overdrew her account and we are now stuck with overdraft fees and bounced check charges. I called the guy Joseph Abugo tonight and he still answers as " clearing house" I acted like we cashed the check and we wanted to know wheer to send the moneygram? he proceeded to tell us to put Sandra Johnson on it and put montreal canada on it once we did all that we are to call him back so he can give the rest of the info on where to send it and to give us a reference number.I was so furious I asked him a few questions to get his location and he is at 450 Bay street in toronto, canada. I oud love to meet this guy in person and have a nice few moments with him it wouldnt take long. The FBI is involved and I would love for you all to call this number and ask for Annette @ [protected] asap. This guy wil pay for what he has and continues to do. So please call this lady with your info and what he has done to you ...Thanks you can contact me at [email protected] .

    My letter was the same except letterhead from Arista Capital Group in Toronto. Claim agent was Chris Diallo and Anthony Thomas as Promotion Manager, although the signature looks like Ryan somebody. The check is from Peoples Heritage Bank in Portland ME and the business is S.M.M.C. Management in Biddeford ME. I searched on the businesses and did not turn up anything until I found this site confirming what I had believed all along - that it is a scam! I am going to send it to our Attorney General's office because he likes to be aware of these things, like the Nigerian scam that keeps going around. They often publish in the paper for people to be aware of these scams circulating in our area. You all might want to do the same thing. The Federal Trade Commission is another good one to report to.

    I like everyone else on this site is bewildered by this way of lying to good hard working people trying to make ends meet pay check to paycheck. Yesterday, I got the same winning notification from North American Lottery Inc. stating I won $4800.00 and advised to contact David Jones [protected] (claim agent) and pay $3800.00 in Moneygram or Western Union for gov't taxes and then I will be entitled to $100, 00. I have ever received any winnings ever, so naturally I was excited that finally after over 50 years " I won something". Thanks for the enternet and the many testomonies I read as I investigate this Clearing House, 450 Bay St.Toronoto, Ontario, Canada. Plus, the letter was signed by Mrs. Donna Brown (Promotion Manager). This week I am gong to turn it over to the either the FBI, Postal Service, or Better Business Bureau to validate if this is a scam or not. I am not going to deposit this check and hope that somehow we can get together to catch these people.

    My son who is 12 just got this letter today. He got a check for $4800.00. We were on our way to a parent teacher conference when he opened the letter. He said to me " Mom I just won $100, 00.00. I said that he was crazy. Then he showed me a check for $4800.00. I couldn't believe that this was sent to a 12 year old child. I knew that it was a scam. When we got home he showed it to my husband who went online and found this site. I am going to bring this to my local police station tomorrow and see what they can tell me. Just a little hint to all the people that get this letter. The amounts on the paper don't add up. We were sent a check for $4800.00 and they said that they would send us $96200.00 when we paid the $3800.00 taxes. Just read the letter and you can pretty much know that things just don't add up.

    A little tip to anyone that receives anything saying they won something. As a Western Union Agent I can tell you that we are informed of many scams. If anywhere there is something saying that you have to make a payment through Western Union, Money Gram, or any other payment sending company that is similar to them. Then it is a SCAM.

    My cousin received a letter almost identical to what everyone else has written here. She called me because she knew that I would have an idea on if it was real. Even though I knew it was a SCAM I said I would look it up on-line which brought me to this page.

    I am going to do what ever I can to make the person that sent the letter endlessly annoyed. I intend to have my cousin tell them that the check has been deposited and that the money will we sent in the money will be sent the next day. They will be given a FAKE MTCN for Western Union. I intend to have them running back and forth to a Western Union Agent where ever they are and looking like an Idiot.

    I don't know if anyone else would be interested in doing this but, from what I can tell, this seems to be about the only thing that we can do against these people that are trying to scam people out of there earned money.

    A received the same letter telling me to contact Joseph Abugo with a slight variation. What first stood out to me was that the dollar amount did not match. The amount I had "won" was $100, 000. The check was for $4800, which was to pay for the $3800 in taxes. Then I would receive a check for $96, 200. Well according to my limited math skills, that adds up to $101, 000. Also, the company was Lion County Safari, Inc. The actual company is Lion Country, Inc. Third, the check was drawn under "National City" of Lousville, KY. Even though the spelling of the city was wrong, I called National City anyway. The check number was an actual check. The account number was correct as well. However, the routing number did not match with their bank's routing number. BE CAREFUL. THIS IS A SCAM!!!

    I received a letter from U.S. Management 200 Walker Street Watsonville, CA 95098 on 10-16-08. I was very excited that I may have won something. I decided to check it out first and found it was a scam. What do people get out of causing so many people bad times. I hope they catch the party behind this. The check looked so real and I could use 500, 000. Please always check out strange letters before you act on them

    My husband received the very same letter, except his contact is DAN JORDAN. The letterhead is U. S. Management, 200 Walker Street, Watsonville, CA 95098. The bank is First National Bank Of Central California, 655 Main Street, Watsonville, CA [protected]. The letter stated that he had won $500, 000.00 and they sent him a check for $3867.00. I hope no one is a victim of this scam but alot of people do not have access to the internet and this is very tempting with times as hard as they are right now. Please take care.

    My husband just received his in the mail today. But, they even provided the lottery numbers that he supposedly played for North American Lottery. Says there was an announcement held on Oct 4, 2008 naming him approved to receive lump sum of $500, 000.00. The letterhead is from US Management, 200 Walker Street, Watsonville, CA [protected].750.6855) contact: Dan Jones. I checked this company on BBB, no such company. Not even the phone number. The check is from First National Bank of Central California, 655 Main Street, Watsonville, CA 95077. The bank does exist, but incorrect zip code. I am going to try to register this w/ consumer alert and will contact bank.
    Good luck! Hope no one becomes victim.

    My daughter recieved this same type of letter today, just was not sure it sounded too good to be ture! Just trying to find out andnow I know. I am going to report this to the postal service and see if they can do anything to help catch these theives.In this tight economy I am afraid there will be more people caught in this type of easy money trap. Always check first, if it is genuine then time will not be such an issue.
