I received a letter from a person named Rubby Kane, accounts manager of Kingsway Financial Services, Inc stating that I'd won a lottery with a company named North America Vacationers Sweepstakes/Lottery Program. They claimed that I had won a Bahama Cruise with a lump sum payment of $20, 000. I also received a "Official Check" for $2, 946.75 from US Bank. The remitter on the check was Lindsey Person and the check was issued from Los Angeles, CA. The letter told me to call a claims agent named Mr Benjamin Tempo at 1-204-951-9569 and to make sure to claim before June 8, 2007. I'm so glad that I went online to check this out and found all of the warnings from entering the name Kingsway.
It appears that there are many different alias for this scam. Make sure to check them out. I looked on the Kingsway Financial Services Inc website and I would have believed them had I not then entered the North America Vacationers name. That's when all the red flags went up. Remember, there's nothing in life that's free. You don't get a check in the mail with no address on it and you never send money back to someone. If you win $20, 000 you win all of it (not minus the taxes and processing fees). How do we go about getting this out to the public better? Isn't this illegal. I feel so badly for the people that actually get scammed. How do these companies get out names and addresses?
