Heres a new twist to the same lemon: Gold Nugget Jackpot sends you a check and letter. Check is drawn on who else? Bank of Holly Springs, of course.
Although the check is a different color and format from the ones sent by Starluck Casino, its still a forgery. On June 14, 2007, I spoke with a Mr. Charles King of the Bank of Holly Springs. I asked why his bank. He said the scammers picked his bank at random. Said they have been operating for 2 years and the Feds cant or wont do anything about it.
The scam only works if you are impatient or greedy. They are counting on you sending the money before the phony check bounces. And some victims do. My personal advice to Scamees; Spent the money in your mind at get on with your life.
