I received a letter in the mail from Draxon Solutions stating that I was a luch winner of a sweepstakes give-away. With the letter, came 2 checks!! One in the amount of $18, 520.07 and the other in the amount of $1850.
The larger check could only be cashed if accompanied by a surety bond certificate. The cost of this certificate is the amount of the smaller check.
What eventually happens is that you would deposit this check and write the Bond Exchange Bureau a check to cover the bond. When you would discover that these checks were forfeit and you lost out on the $1850.
Everything looks real. I could see anyone falling for it, except that I am always suspicious of that which looks too good to be true. And it was signed by Andrew Wyeth, a famous painter?!
