My fiancee received a check in the amount of $4, 880.00 dated 8/6/2007 which we just opened tonight 9/20. It came with a letter stating he had won a North American Prize Pool with a remaining balance of $95, 120.00 and sponsored by a group of companies in North America which is false. The check and the letter seemed very suspicious because it looked so real, therefore we googled fraud and sure enough we discovered this site where many others have had huge claims against these scam artists.
The company name on the check is legitimate " Cinram Manufacturing LLC" in Olyphant PA however we know they are being scammed now too and plan to contact them asap. We as others said believe in karma and we pray that these idiots
They wanted us to deposit the check, call them and pay a tax of $3, 786.00. They would have then had access to our bank accounts and major damage could have been done.
Luckily, we research everything. I hope others do as well!
