My Name is Samantha and I recieved a Check in the Mail Followed by a Letter that States i won some 45, 000 dollars in a North American Utilities Drawing in April of 2007.. I received the Check on Sat the 7th of July.. I proceeded to Call them after i opened and read it.. Took me a Couple of times to get a hold of Someone aned i finally did and they told me to Deposit the Check in the amount of $2, 980.00 and then wait 2-4 days for it to clear and then i am to call them back after it clears..
Well before i was going to head to the Bank i did some research about this company and found out that they are scamming people and that i am to call our local police and report it.. seeings how i am a single mother i really needed the money so i was going to cash it and i am SO glad i didnt because i cant afford to pay the bank back.. I am in contact with the local police and i hope they get stopped.. I recieved a couple of emails about these scams and then recieved the letter in the mail.. Makes me mad that these people can PREY on us like that and PREY on innocent poeple and people who really need the money..
ITS A SCAM AND RIPOFF PLEASE BEWARE.. DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU CASH OR DEPOSIT CHECKS THAT YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT!!!!! THE CHECK WAS REAL is what my bank told me but what i found out is they wait till it clears and then puts a stop payment on the money when you dont send it to them and then the check comes back and you owe that money back to the bank... PLEASE PLEASE BEWARE!!!!!
