Sullivan Pierce Levinrequest for payment for moneys won

I received a p[ostcard from Sullivan Pierce Levin and was advised to contact 02 [protected] on getting through I was told to enter a pin off the postcard. On doing this I was told I had won some money and a diamond pennant but instructed to pay $25 via credit card to receive my funds and pennant. I am questioning the legitamacy of this can you advise. My email is [protected]@gmail.com I wait an answer.

    People ask how did these people get my address

    Well the short answer is that your name has been added to a "sucker list" that is sold/traded to scam artist's world wide (Google "sucker-list")
    By replying to one of these advanced fee scams you confirm that the name and address are real (a similar thing can happen with your email address) which mean that the scammer can on sell/trade your details to other parasites worldwide

    What to do?
    Never respond to any letter that claims you have won a prize (unless it's from a lottery that you have entered)
    Mark the letters "Return to sender" and drop in the nearest Post Box

    If everyone did this for a few years the scammers might realise that it's them wasting their money instead of the scammed
    Remember these Con-men/women send thousands of letter every year

    My 84 year old Mother receives at least 50 of these every week approximately 2-3 thousand a year for just 1 recipient, and I send them all back !

    Yes, I have received the same as above from Sullivan Pierce Levin. They now have my credit card number which I have managed to put a block on. How can we stop all these fraudulent people from cheating the public?

    All these scams seem to start when you get a E-mail from readers digest stateing you are in the draw for there comps they are running.Funny thing i dont subscribe to them. Sullivan Pierce Levin contacted me after i told another scammer FREELOTO that i would not pay $500 to get a cheque for $ 1 Million If we can tell everyone In Australia about these scammers they will have to try elsewhere

    PeaceLilly. Perth...To Vernon Stack, Rockingham W.A I sure hope that you have changed your credit card because now they have it they will be into your account over and over until you work it out.I received the same card, went straight to the net to find all these wonderful peoples warnings...They are all the same these people trying to make a buck...it happens in all sorts of businesses though now a days.Your local car salesman and mechanic still see future victims coming their way, usually innocent people who dont know any better, and they get over charged, told things need replacing when they dont need replacing, sometimes charge you for it and don't even change the part.We live in sad times morally...

    we live in rockingham western aus. My husband also received a card saying he had won money and to ring this number [protected] which we did, we are still waiting on the necklace and money months after they took the $25 process and shipping fee. I think this is cruel and yes they should be shot we are only pensioners and all dream of winning big money to have people con you out of money is more than disappointing.

    My sister has just received one of these cards from sullivan Pierce Levin in Hong Kong with only a PO Box No 554, GPO, Hong Kong. Where are these people getting our names and addresses from and why do they target certain people? its all a scam to get your money!! do not send any. The British Government should intercept this mail and get to the bottom of these shoddy exploiters.

    I received a card saying I had won a share of $183, 997. So just for a giggle I rang and gave a cancelled card number. The voice said it had been processed. Cant wait to contact my bank on that one. Might be able to catch them this way. I am still laughing. So I hope others do the same thing.

    something really has to be done by all governments around the world to stop these people from ripping off the unsuspecting people that don't know any better about these so called companies, please everyone get your complaints known so together we can all stop this from happening.

    further to previous...These are the first 'card' notifications I have received. All others are letters very well presented but some 'English' wording is questionable? must be done a great expense and the have to pay $20, $30, $60 etc to have the Cheque that is already written on your behalf" etc My letter box is full every few days 20 or 30 of these letters and only one or two 'REAL" personal mail???

    all l can say fellow Aussies'- Don't get sucked into these low life's. how can you win something from someone you have never heard of or put any funds towards to win.
    you would be better off putting the $25.00 into an your own account and adding another $25.00 every month, then wella you have at the end of 12 months $300. times that by 2 years=$600 and so on. at least that way you know it is your money going to YOU.
    when you get these postcards Don't even open them, do what l do and chuck em straight into the bin. :)
