I was sent a letter stating that I had won "The Mega Millions Drawing held September 15, 2007. I received the winning serial number and the winning numbers. The letter stated that I was entitled to the sum of 250, 000.00(Two Hundere Fifty Thousand Dollars). Enclosed was a check for $4450.00 which was deducted from my winnings to pay the Tax clearance fee of $3, 400.00 I was to contact my claims agent Micheal Davis before I did anything with the check.
I contacted Mr. Davis and he assured me that the check was good and that the funds were ready to be sent to me. The Check was drawn on an account through UMPC Bank here in the United States. I deposited the check into my account because you have to send cash when wiring money western union or money gram. My bank has a 5 working day period before they would clear the money.
On September 11 I received a call from my bank telling me that the check was sent back for insuffient funds. September 11 is a hard day for me because of the acts that were committed on the United States that day . I lost family members and friends on flight 93 that crashed here in Pennsylvania. Then I got the news about the check.
I called Mr. Davis and he informed me that he would contact the bank and call me back I have not heard from him . I continue to call the number that was given me and I get a recording That the person is unavailable call back later. This check put my account in the negetive and I have been charged $368.00 for return fees.
