Global Financial, International Claim Dept., De-Lotto Netherlands Sweepstakes Lottery Received Check for $2, 900.00 drawn on an account with Banknorth

I had received a few letters from Global Financial Inc., about winning a sweepstakes. I had thrown all of them in the trash until one day I received a letter with a check in it for $ 2, 900.00 as per payment for the taxes on the amount I had won, which was $100, 000.00.
So I called Tony Prag, Promotion Manager, in Toronto, Canada, (416-799-8110) he asured me this was not a scam, that is why they took the $2, 900.00 out of my winnings to pay the taxes on them before they could send me the balance.
I took the check and deposited it into my bank account, my bank called me to let me know that there would be a five day hold on the funds. That was fine with me because I wasn't going to do anything with the money until I was sure it cleared the bank.
Last week my bank said the funds were avaible. Because I was about to be evicited in a fews, the first thing I did was write my landlord a check for December and January's rent. I am disabled and am witing on appoval for my SSD and had no funds at all.
Well, I got a call this morning from my bank saying the check for $2, 900.00 had been returned to them Account Closed. I went down to my bank, got a copy of the check and called the Banknorth in MA to get whatever information I could, which was nothing. So I looked up the company's name the the check was written on (Toolmex Corp., Natick, MA). The lady was very nice and told me the checks were stolen and that was why they had to close the account. She refered my to Catherine White, V.P. of Bank Security. 800-494-9466, she is handling all of the problems with these checks.
Of course, when I called Tony Prag this morning, Casandra, said he wasn't in, so I called back from a different phone. Tony answered and I palyed along with his game, telling him I had the money and I needed the address of the Tax Agent I was to mail the money too. He was surpised. Then when I told him the real reason I was calling, was because the check had come back account closed, he tried to get me to send him $1, 100.00 prossing fee. I told him because he had mail this to me through internation mail it was now in the hands of the Postal Dept. Tony hung up very fast.
