Unfortunately only just logged on to this website from UK to see what I could find out about these thieves from Hamilton Moore Associates.
I am a 73 year old pensioner from UK. and as I had paid to be in a lottery some time ago, but forgot the name of the firm, I thought my letter congratulating me on winning might be genuine. No such luck!! I sent my cheque off under recorded delivery next day as they stipulated my claim would be void if they didnt receive my cheque within 7 days. I attached a letter saying that if this was a scam I was going to a solicitor or write to the newspaper, hoping it might deter them. But as I have not heard anything from them after 4 weeks I now know my cheque has been banked in their bank like all the other poor "suckers" whose stories I have read on this site. SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT THESE THIEVES. All these cheques mount up into hundreds in their bank. The police in CANADA should definitely look into this scam, as it does not show CANADA in a good light. They will be tarnished like the people who run similar scams from NIGERIA.
