I received a check from zenith financial and trust in the amount of $4875.00 instructing me to sent tax money to a tax agent. First you do not send money to a tax agent you send it to the irs whether state or federal secondly if you know checking the numbers at the bottom for the account are too many and the check number was not included at the end. And thirdly you do not send tax payments by western union there has to be a form included with the payment national or internationally. So when it instructed me to send the amounts I let them talk and when I asked how do I know if this is legitimate larry benson (so called) hung up. This tells me they are not only using false accounts but false names as well. Remember this and if you get a check call your local fbi or law enforcement agency before you call them and put it on three-way and maybe they can trace the call. Go along with them to give the athoruities time to make the trace.
HAD MY ATTORNEY DEPOST THE CHECK INTO MY ATTORNEY'S ESCROW ACCOUNT.
THE CHECK CAME BACK FRAUDULANT.
MY ATTORNEY IS NOW GOING AFTER THESE POEPLE.
SINCE IT IS OVER $1000 IT IS CONSIDERED A FELONY.
TAKE THE CHECKS TO YOUR ATTORNEY, LET THEM TAKE CARE OF IT.
I HOPE THEY HAVE ENOUGH FUNDS TO COVER OVER 100 GRAND PLUS ATTORNEY FEES :)
GONA GET EM' I AM THEIR WORST NIGHTMARE!
WHEN SENT LEMONS, SEND THEM LEMONADE!
I just received a check in the mail with a letter stating that I was one of 72 other winners sharing $9, 000, 000. They attempted to contact me multiple times, but no avail. The only reason why I decided to check the internet was because I tried to contact the number provided. A recorder came on with just the number and said there was no room for additional messages. Now if this was real, then there should have been a more professional message center, especially if they stated the hours (which it should have been opened). I don't even recall submitting my name for this lotto. this check definitely looks real. My question is: "Is there a problem with us contacting the number on the letter". I hope not, because I attempted to call twice.
I am definitely assuming that this check is a scam, correct?
They sent me a check in the amount of $4, 875.00 stating that I was one of 73 of the DE-LOTTO AMERICAN SHOPPERS LOTTERY held on January 15th 2009 in the 2nd category. They claimed to have been unsuccessful in reaching me and that I had won $125, 000.00 out of $9 million that was shared and presented among 72 other declared winners. They gave me a claim number BOD-3115 and said it was assigned to their North American Claims Affiliate. To expedite the processing, they enclosed this fake check in US dollars which was supposed to be deducted from my so called winnings. They explained that the sole purpose of this first check was for the payment of applicable government taxes on the big winnings. The tax amount is $2875.00 to be paid by Western Union or Money Gram directly to the agent. They asked me to call the number [protected] before I cash this check and contact my claim agent immediately for further clarification within 10 business days. In my case the agent's name is Larry Benson at that number. Don not call this number of attempt to send any funds to these scammers! See photos of fake check & letter I have attached for reference.
