I received a letter in the mail today in a plain envelope and not return address. After my opened the letter she noticed this nice little check for $3850.00 and read the letter to me. I do not play the lottery and new there could not have been a "mix up" during the drawing.
As we read on and noticed that they wanted us to deposit this money in our bank account. I had just recently seen something on a documentary about getting checks depositing them and sending money to pay for fees, so I knew something was funny about this.
My wife researched the Bank the check is drawn on and it is in Japan, yep JAPAN and the phone number is invalid as we tried to call. So next we researched Liberty Trust Financial Corporation and wouldn't you know right in the title of the link talks about Fraud Lottery Checks.
As exciting as it was to see this check, I was scared enough the check it out. So be ware of unmarked envelops saying you "won" money.
