Standard Trust Beware of this!

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!

      I have received two letter along with two checks within the last 3 weeks. The lst one is from RBC Financial Windsor Ontario Canada and that check was for $4, 850.00 - The 2nd one is from Standard Trust Nova Scotia for $3, 900.00. The lst letter has a contact name of John Anderson - The 2nd one the contact name is Ron Clark and also on the 2nd letter they say the tax amount to be paid through Money Gram located in every Walmart Store. I am sure Walmart would be interested to know that this company is using their name. I haven't called the numbers lised on the letters because they are long distance numbers and I figured that could also be part of the scam too. I would be interested to know if anyone else has called and what happened after that.

      I received a letter and check for $4875 with instructions to call a Mr Eric Duncan. I called and Mr Duncan instructed me to deposit the check in my bank account and call him back. He would at that time give me instructions on how to file the U.S. taxed on the entire winnings of $125, 000.

    Standard Trust UNCLAIMED WINNIG

    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…

          I just received a letter today from Beatrice Berry (Vice President of Finance) Standard Trust. It was enclosed with a check for $4, 920.00 and told me to contact Jennifer Moore. I googled the # [protected] and it is a cell phone based out of Ontario. The letter said that I entered a drawing for $250, 000.00 which is completely bogus because I don't even shop at any of those stores listed.

          Standard Trust SUPPOSED address:
          Sun Tower
          1550 Bedfork Highway
          Suite 410
          Nova Scotia, B4a 1E6

          Address on check:

          Sterling Bank
          124 E. Main Street
          Maple Shade, NJ 08052

          Check was issued from:

          Foods Galore, INC
          9426 Commerce Hwy.
          Pennsauken, NL 08110

          The only other real mail I get with my name spelt the way it is on this fake letter is from Bank of America. Maybe we all have that in common? Or unless Bank of America sold my info off...No wonder we cannot figure out who is doing this!

          I have just come home to a very trying day to discover that I had won a 250, 000 cash payout. The letter from Standard Bank had an enclosed check for 3992.00 and all I had to do was pay a small tax on the lump sum 2990.00. The letter also directed me to call Jennifer or Rom to set up this transaction at a Wal-Mart store. I am very disturbed by this scam, how did they get my full name and correct address??

          ALERT: There is no legitimate reason why anyone would provide you with a check or money order and ask you to wire money anywhere in return. If you have received a USGA check for any amount of money as a winner in a lottery drawing or for any other reason and have been asked to wire money back — it is a scam. Do not cash the check. If you cash this check you will be responsible to the bank for these funds.

          Contact the USGA Legal Department at [protected] or Michael Swangler of U.S. Secret Service (USSS) at [email protected] for further information.

            I also recieved a check from standard trust . Food Galore & Sterling Bank NJ were the company names, in the amount of 4, 920.00 with a letter stating that I had to send 3, 450.00 through money gram to pay gov't taxes. I decided to take the check to a local check cashing establishment so that my bank account couldn't be accessed since I didn't know where the check was from. I'm very upset, especially during these hard financial times that our country is experiencing. I'm gong to cantact the authorities and many local news carrires.
