I received a letter from Canada, with no return address, no fax number, no e-mail address, stating that I had won the sweepstakes for 100, 000.
They sent me a cashier's check in the amount of 3, 862, in order to cover my processing fee before they could send me the lump sum money. I deposited the check in my bank account. the bank cleared the check, but little did I know that it would bounce after I send 3, 100 to them to cover the processing fee.
After they received their Western Union Transfer. everytime I called the number they provided, it was either busy or they would hang up on me. that's when I knew it was a scam. I did not wait long enough to see if the check would bounce or not. These people are good. they give you a deadline to send the money for processing fee/if you don't you would lose the lump sum money.
Unfortunately, I am out of 3, 100. Please do not send these people any money. I should have known when the letter had no return address/ no fax/ no e-mail address.Payment officer is Wendy Phillips/ Cathy mccloud from St Catherines, ontario, canada received my western Union Transfer. the only number they provided 1-877-621-3099 which was a toll free. when I called information to try to trace the number. They could not, because it was a toll free number.
