Trustnetnorth america consumer promotion draw scam letter

L Review updated:

My elderly parents received a letter and "check" from trustnet. The letter claims "we are pleased to inform you that you are one of the winners in the 'north america consumer promotion draw' organized for all customers of... Walmart [sic], sears, homedepot [sic], safeway." they then go on to say that the prize is $50, 000, and the the check enclosed is to be cashed and returned in the form of money transfer in order to pay the "non residents" [sic] tax applicable to the winning. My parents identified this as a scam, but I thought i'd report it to help others.

Their scam uses a bunch of different addresses to confuse the reader (or cover their tracks):

- the return address on the envelope was metro hall station, 55 john st., toronto, on m8v3c3 (I looked this up, it's a toronto civic center).
- the trustnet address on the letterhead is 4333 charles drive, salt lake city (misspelled with saltlake all one word), telephone [protected].
- the claim agent is listed as nicole newman, phone number [protected] (a toronto area code).
- the tax agent (the person you're supposed to send $3, 880 to) is listed as sara jean, 453 2nd avenue, ottawa, canada, m6r3c5 (which google maps can't locate).
- the letter is "signed" by m. Disher (vice president), phone number [protected].
- the enclosed check for $3, 990.00, made out in my father's name, is supposedly written on the account of helmsman management services llc, 185 decker ct, irving, tx 75062, from fleet national bank in hartford, ct (which no longer exists because it was bought out by bank of america in 2007).

    Please be alert this organization is on the hunt once again and hitting the San Antonio, TX area. My parents just got scammed and it is ashame that this group is not tracked and in prison for taking advantage of seniors and disabled veterans. The day will come when the criminals of this organization "North American Consumer Promotional Draw" can't hide. They are commiting check fraud, wire fraud, tax fraud and mail fraud.

    Hi, i just received a letter with a check for $822.15. The letter has a logo from northern trust, 522 s. State st. Chicago, il. 60605, tel. [protected], ext-2 claim number 15-08-gt-20. I'm suppost to contact my claim agent by the name of fred parker at the number above, and i can't take any action until i talk to this guy first. The vice-president of finance is c. Witherspoon. The message is the same as the other letters, from " north america comsumer promotion draw" and that i am entitled to the sum of $8, 221.50. My winnings will be payable by certified check and it will be delivered either by fed ex or ups. I have to pay $700 tax before i be able to get the lump sum. The check looks legitimate, even the back of it. Is from "arvest bank", 338 fifth st. Jay, ok, 74346., ah, the letter is stamped "confidential" all across in big letters, so they have tried the best way possible so they be able to fool people into their scam. Everybody, please, be aware! this not the only way the scammers will rob you out of your cash. They use letters, they use the phones, they use e-mails, and any other way, that can look legal to you. Oh, by phone they real persistent. They scam me out of $2, 700 last year, all that was suppost to covered different government taxes and international customs, they got me because i was playing international lotteries, and the caller call me about 5 times to convince me to accept the prize of$4.5 millions. Everytime i talk to specific guy, and he will tell me i have to send $500 for this and $600 for that, until i have paid all that money. With the promise that my money was gonna be delivered, i waited every day for two weeks, it never happened. And those guys vanished from the face of the earth, and the government won't do nothing to help us out, once they get your money you lose it. The way they get your cash without leaving a trace is that they make you pay them with those green dot cards, they sell it in waltmart, walgreens and all other places, once you give them those digits on the card, that's all she wrote, you will never gonna see your cash ever again. And they will never stop, ever, when its not one it will be another, with different names or different schemes. We got to pay attention to details.

But before leaving I googled the "UK & North American..., etc etc, " Wow!!! I knew deep down that this most likely wasn't legit but after coming to this site, reading the comments and all the good info all of you provided, I KNOW THIS IS A SCAM.
    MORAL OF THE STORY: KNOW MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS DO NOT LOSE SITE OF WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU DONT ADHERE TO SOUND PRINCIPLE AND ADVICE. ALWAYS CONSULT SOMEONE WHEN DEALING IN SMALL OR LARGE FINANCIAL MATTERS. ITS THE WISE THING TO DO.

    I received one of those letters on 3 September 2011. It was sent from Constitution State Services, LLC., P.O. Box 42927, Houston, TX [protected]. The check was made out to me and it was from CITIBANK, N.A. One Penn’s Way, New Castle, DE 19720, for $3, 100. My first instinct was this is a scam. I checked each of the names and numbers, would find a part or most of them. The “tax agent” name is Nancy Vela and her address a Music Hall(??) in London, United Kingdom; the “promotion director” name is Larry Cole.

    I received one of those bogus checks and letter today, knew it was a scam and sure enough when I type in the name up popped this website. There are no water marks in the check, big tipoff. I hope there are more out there who do not believe this is real. My check was for 3, 690.68; the thing they did not realize is...I DID NOT ENTER A CONTEST, so how could I win a prize.

    My mother-in-law received this same letter and check this past week. Check amount was $985.18 to pay the $900.00 in taxes to win $9851.80. Claim agent Charles Williams at [protected]. Letterhead address 4333 Charles Drive, Arlington, TX 76006. Return address on envelope is North York Civic Centre - 5100 Yonge St., North York, ON M2N 5V7. Check drawn on Heritage Trust - Federal Credit Union - PO Box 118000, Charleston, SC [protected].
    Called the guy, and funny thing, he had and island accent (Jamaican or Bahamian) and sounded as though I just woke him up. Asked him if this was a fraud and he said "No, of course not." Told him I was going to contact my lawyer before trying to cash the check. No more conversation.

    I received a letter just yesterday, Saturday. The letter said that I had won 9, 968.00 and there was a check for 990.00. this check is for my state regulations, tax amount, which is required before I can receive my winnings. The letter is on FSA, Financial Services Authority leeter head, which is a lagit agency. The address on the letter is 90 Rowes Warf, Boston MA 02110. Signed by vice president of finance Joan Arks. There is a claim number. The check is written on a bank by the name of Marshall & Ilsley Bank from Eiden, MN 55410. In the upper left hand corner of the check it says, ROCKLER Companies incorporated Willow drive Medina MN 55340. The back of the check has water marks that are heat sensitive and lots of what says are security features. The letter tells me not to act until I talk to my claim officer Janet Simms, [protected], there is a number at the top of the letter also. it is [protected]. My daughter wanted me cash this check right away, thank god it was a Saturday. I researched instead and found all these people who had received the same letter with a check. I am not sure what to do with this check. I mean who to give it to in order to help catch these people.

    My mother also received a letter. It was from Federal Express, One Broadway, 16th Floor, Cambridge, MA [protected].
    The letter read the same as the rest and the check was for $985.18. The check was drawn on the Credit Union of Texas, 8131 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75251. She was suppose to call Tracy Parker at [protected]. The routing number on the check is not the routing number for the Credit Union of Texas.(It's not a listed routing number at all, [protected].) The letter is signed by J J Sparks, Vice President Finance.
    A woman actually called my mother and tried to harass her into sending money. She even told my mother someone would be bringing her the money that afternoon so my mother hung up and called me to go over because she didn't want them to come. When I got to the house, the women had called her back and she was on the phone with her when I came in and when I started asking questions the woman hung up. I had called the police on my way over to my mom's but they said they couldn't do anything unless someone showed up.
    Thank you all for posting. I hope someone can shut these people down!

    My elderly folks got one too from Precision Holdings. Check was also for $3500 and the so called tax officer was “Edith Hardy, 15 Oxford Street, WC 12 PD London, United Kingdom.” Scammers are apparently using the same Oxford Street, WC 12 PD London address (except for street #) if it is from the UK. The tel nos. this time are: [protected] or [protected].

    Before the letter, they originally called claiming to be from Publisher’s Clearing House and that my folks won $50, 000, and insisted they were legit. They gave a claim # to my mom and said that my folks will get the money sent to them the next day, just wanted to verify the mailing address.

    On the next day, as expected, no one showed up but folks did get a call from someone claiming to be from the US Border Patrol in Dallas, TX. After hanging up on them, they sent the scam letter and check.

    I’m wondering where else we can expose this scam to so many more will know? I wonder if the FBI will do anything about this.

    Hope these scammers will be caught soon.

    My 19 year old son received one of these checks. I am just glad that he is away at Marines bootcamp or he would have thought it was real and cashed it. The letter goes one to say he was entitled to $9851.80 for the North America Consumer Promotion Draw for customers of Wal-mart, Sears, Home Depot, Safeway. They will be sending his winnings by Certified Check to be delivered by Fedex or UPS. He needs to contact Roy Smith on [protected] . They enclosed a check for $985.18. Per your state regulations a tax amount of $900.00 Will be required before your lump some winning can be sent to you. The letter is signed by J.J. Sparks Voce President finance. The Check is drawn from Credit Union of Texas 8131 LBJ Freeway Dallas, TX and was signed by ? Greg McClellen ? not sure of the name as it is sloppy writing. We live near a large retirement city and college kids so I am going to notify the local police, news stations, and banks. I hope that someone catches these thieves and makes them pay restitution and jail time until they can pay everyone back that fell for this scam!

    I recently received one of these checks and letters as well. I'm recently engaged and have been signing up for different bridal sweepstakes and for bridal magazines and different websites. I'm guessing that is how they stole all of my information. I deposited the check, my bank cashed it and nearly 3 weeks later it came back as NSF. My thoughts were just the same, I honestly thought I had one some sort of sweepstakes that I had signed up for! Of course I used the money to pay off some bills and now my account is WAY overdrawn. This is the first time I have ever been overdrawn. I live paycheck to paycheck and there is no way I can pay it off. What am I supposed to do? I feel like such an idiot!

    Similar to the above mentioned claims, I received a letter today.

    The address 1100 112th Av 1351 Washington blv. Suite 5000 stamford CT 06902. The website was globaltestmarket.com

    I immediately went to the website, where it says it is a BBB. Afterward I looked up the GLOBAL TEST MARKET on the BBB and found different address and, clearly, above there are 2 street addresses, neither being the one I found. This letter was in response to "seeking an additional income part-time job." The telephone number is [protected], [protected] or [protected]. The letter is signed by Joseph Coring. The check was for $3420, in my name, and was sent by SOVEREIGN BANK address 1125 Berkshire Blvd, Wyomissing, PA [protected]. The idea was, again, to deposit the check and western union 2980 of it to someone, spend 100 at a local retail, etc.

    Luckily, I googled the address and this lovely site popped up. I am so grateful everyone on here was nice enough to share their stories to avoid this from happening in the future. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

    I receive the same letter with a cashier's check for 985.18 from sooper credit union. I then looked up the number of the credit union, contacted them, gave them the # off the check and who signed it. They quickly informed me it was a scam and to forward everything I'd receive to them to be investigated. I suggest every else do the same.

    Today my Father, a disabled man who lives in the poverty tax brachette recieved one of thses Lovely checks. The check was issued for 950.00. Being a smart man he figured it was fraud but considering he had filled out a entry form and 2 of the 3 places, one being walmart the other being home depot, so he wasnt sure. This check did look legit with the water marks and all...the weary part was they said the check was from Chase bank with no logo and every chase check ive ever had said chase manhattan. We called chase bank and they said that the check numbers starting with 2116 were comming back as fraud, My father then called the "so called" claims agent Nicole Hamilton (they are switching there names all around) asking to speak with her supervisor she stated that he was not in the office today, my father then said that it did not sound like she was in a office and that she sounded like she was sitting at home and proceeded to tell her what chase bank told him, she then hung up the phone. so i did some research and found this site...the latest info they are giving is Claims agent Nicole Hamilton, Tax agent Sandra andrews 453 2nd ave. London UK, vice president M. Disher...my opinion is they will be caught soon, but that wont stop the next scam artist...they will be judged for there wrong doing but untill then i hope they suffer in prison!!

    THIS IS ANOTHER STORY OF BEING SCAMED AND OVER DRAWN MY ACCOUNT,
    AUG 19/ 2010
    THIRSDAY 3:45 PM
    FRM. ( [email protected] )
    I hope we can all get together and band agenst these scams, I'm tired of it .. and no one can seem to catch these son's of [censor]e;s, , So I'm writting all the information I can so you the people will know some of there angles and not get burned, like I did .

    Although I was skeptic about doing what I did when I receved a check from these people,
    and what I did was when I called them the first time, , , they told me to deposit it in my checking account and then call them after and they would send a courrior or a fed ex truck to deliver my check of ( 9, 851, 18 ) and I was to give them 900. dollars for the tax on that money, ,
    Hey .//// I didn't do that, , , I simply went to my bank and cashed the check and I waited, yes the bank cashed it, , and I thought if the check was really good that they would know it right away befor cashing it . No I didn't show the bank teller the letter, , , they told me later that they would not have cashed it if they saw the letter .
    I guess what I'm trying to do is to catch a thief, , in my own type of a sting operation, , , IF some one gives some one else a check for any amount, , the person that has the check in hand to cash should not be the one who is Guilty, , , Go after the people that wrote the check, , FIind them and Make them pay no matter what ..just find these [censor] low life [censor] that they are .
    Ok heres how it now stands I went to the bank that day and cashed the check, I never heard anything from any one, , I just kept the money put away, did not spend it ..I was waitting for them to call me direct because they had my phone number, , No Call )
    about a week went by, , and then By not to much of a surprise my bank account was hit for Not 1000, 00, , but 2000, 00 Dollars, , of over draft, , , and I never even gave them my new bank account numbers, ,
    However the bank tells me that because they didn't honer their check they have to go after my account and thats what they did, But there is either Bank error, , Or some how the scam was doubled in my account and this is BUll S- - t )
    Actually when you read the following letter that they sent you"ll Understand that I was trying to scam a scammer and catch them, IF IT WAS A SCAM < I WASN"T SURE < I JUST THOUGHT THAT <<JUST MAYBE I WAS JUST LUCKY TO HAVE WON SOMETHING, BUT i GUESS NOT . HAH..
    On a new note, , Now that the bank is investagateing ( thats what I wanted them to do anyway ) and that has cost me dearly ) I came home and I called the scammer again and pretended that I just got the letter again, , , I led them to believe that at first, ,
    They asked me for the clam number again, , , and then told me to deposit it in my checking account, , , I said Why ??
    They just said because thats our Policy, , , , i told her it's not mine, she disbuted with me, , , I then started to loose my cool and told her off, but before I compleatly lost it, , I asked her where she was in what state and address, , , she was reluktent to tell me execpt, that she said she was in Buffallo NY, , and wouldn"t tell me any more, , I said I don"t think so, , and told her That I knew where she was, I also began to tell her that I already cashed the check and that the Bank went after my account because it was no good check, , and I wanted my money back, , I told her that she was a scam artest and thaT SHE WAS GOING TO BE ARRESTED, , , i SAID DO YOU VALUE YOUR FREEDOM ???SHE SAID SHE WAS ONLY A CALL CENTER, , THE CO WAS IN CABRIDGE MASS.
    THIS IS THE ADDRESS >>> One Broadway, 16 floor Cambridge, Mass. 02142 )
    -------------------------------------

    SO WHAT I'M REVEALING TO ANY ONE WHO IS TRYING TO FIGHT THESE CROOKS, IS THAT WE HAVE TO SORT OF SET UP A STING OPERATION TO CATCH THEM,

    THE FOLLOWING LETTER IS A LETTER I RECEVED FROM THE [censor] BALL SCAME ARTESTS THAT THEY ARE,


    I ALSO GOT A CHECK AND A LETTER SAYING THAT WON, , OR SHOULD I SAY >> ( QUOTE >> YOU ARE -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Just received a letter from Trustnet showing their head office address in Brighton Massachusetts. It included a check for $3950.00 written on a Wells Fargo bank in North Boulder, with no state indicated. It asked that I call their claim agent whose name is given as Nicole Brown at a telephone number with a Toronto Canada area code. It lists their tax agent as Susan Andrews at a London England address. Your efforts to expose this type of scam are very much appreciated. Thanks, Robert M.

    Yeah, I just got $3, 950 and all i have to do is send most of it to some dude in London - what a deal! I can't believe anyone would fall for this one - its just WAY to good to be true... I HOPE THEY CATCH THESE MOFO's... I also have been getting calls about winning 2 million dollars and all i have to do is send like 5k to some sweepstakes company... yea right.. if these people only knew i have zero in my account!!! ha ha.. oh well. guess I have to go back to work tomorrow!!
