My 88 year old mother started recieving calls to follow up on a letter she recieved which included a check for $4800.00. The envelop had no return address and a stamp from Canada.
The envelop contained a poorly written letter which appeared to be printed from a cheap color printer. Enclosed was also a check for $4800.00 from City Capital Finance Inc. and was written on a bank check from First Union National Bank in Washington D.C.. Neither of these two entities actually exist.
The letter requested here to contact Henry Adams at 778-316-3826. She was given the following name and address as her Tax Agent: Pamela Anderson, 255 Ford Ave., St. John, NF, Canada, V5C2M6.
Representitives from this scam have continued to try and reach my Mom by phone to follow up and get her to send in $2900.00 to pay for the Non-Resident Government Tax (GST) so she can collect the remaining balance of her $480, 000.00 winnings. She was instructed to sent her money through Western Union or Moneygram.
They insist you not act on this letter until you speak to your Claim Agent.
