I received a letter from "Standard Trust and Financial Lotto" stating I had won their "De-Lotto American Shoppers Lottery" on December 15, 2015 in the second category.
My winnings amount to $120, 000.00 and I received a cashiers check for
$4, 975.00 for Government Taxes on the winnings. I called the 877 number and was told to deposit the check and call back, then he said (with a accent) could not tell from where but no an American! I called back the next day and he said my Bank most likely would not give me full funds for 24 hours and to call back after withdrawing $3, 500.00 from the deposit and to make a deposit at JP-Morgan account number he would me. It would be at that time he would either wire me the $120, 000.00 or send another cashiers check (Fraud Check) in the mail.
1 7 09 - Received check drawn on PNC Bank NA New Jersey for $4, 920.00, along with letter saying I had won $250, 000 in LOTTO 649 contest. Tax amount was $3, 980 to be paid through Money Gram an any WalMart. Check was to be used to pay taxes. Said to call [protected] and talk to Steve Brown, letter signed by Vanessa Robert, so called VP of Finance. Thankfully, I looked up this site and found it was a scam. These people are lower than low to be taking advantage of people in this terrible economy. I shredded the check and the letter. Beware of this!
First of all, thanks to the Internet we can be better informed. Same all, Unclaimed Winning, US$ 250, 000 winning lump sum, plus a check to cover taxes, Wahoo!!! That can only happen in your dreams. I reported to the FBI office in my city and called the institution that supposedly issued the check. Do not be fooled, do not try to cash the check, this can be a night mare for you…
They sent me a check which looks authentic. It is for $4, 920.00. I have the FINAL NOTICE OF UNCLAIMED WINNING Claim # NW 723-559E. I "won" 250, 000.00. Signed by Beatrice Berry, Vice President Finance. Envelope with no return address. I can send you the document if you are interested. Should I file this with any authorities?
Received letter with a "check" for the amount of $3, 900.00. Letter stated I won the Lotto 649 Contest held on August 27, 2008 and am entitled for a lump sum of $250, 000, which will be paid to me after the government receives the taxes due. The check I received is to help pay for the taxes due, which equal $2, 985. This check amount has been deducted from my winnings and I need to pay the taxes in a Money Gram, which I can purchase at any WalMart store. I am to receive my tax information from my claim agent, Ron Clark, at [protected]. I am to call him for further instructions and mention Claim # EC 273-559 C.
This letter was addressed to me, Robert Stuurmans @ my home address with no return address on the outside of the envelope. It is from the office of Donna Robert (Vice President Finance) Standard Trust @ Sun Tower, 1550 Bedford Highway, Suite 410, Nova Scotia, B4A 1E6.

My husband got this letter in the mail today - I thought it was maybe from some contest he entered online. He thought it sounded fishy. I told him to call and check it out - the check looked very official. He tried calling the number and got a message saying that the mailbox was full and could not accept any more messages. I got on the internet and searched "LOTTO 649" and found this site. I am so glad I did. The company name wqas different ffrom those listed, but the address, names, and circumstances were exact - Thank god for sites like this!!! We will be filing a complaint with the post office.
