Today I recieved a check in the mail claiming that I am one of 23 winners in a British Lotto. Interesting since I live in Washington and have never entered a lottery in another country! This check is supposed to be an assistance check to pay for your international clearance fees. You are supposed to call someone and activate this check and give them your bank account information so that they can deposit the supposed remaining 115 thousand.
Apparently other people have fallen for this scam, I am very skeptical of any free money offers that come my way, especially by email. So when I saw this I immediately keyworded Bonanza 2000 Royal British Lotto into the search bar on yahoo and came up with someone elses consumer complaints! Please heed this and don't ever give out your account information to anyone!
