I received a letter with a check for $3, 820 for winning the "Consumer's Reward Program". When I called the phone number in the letter I couldn't understand the greeting as the man's accent was very heavy and after asking several times he explained to me that I was to deposit the check in to my account. After it cleared in 2-3 days I was to call him back to have the remainder of my winnings minus taxes sent by FedEx. Someone would have to sign for this check as they couldn't send it through the mail in case it was lost.
He explained to me that the money comes from part of the taxes that are paid by all consumers when making any purchases and anyone who makes these purchases are put into this lottery for a chance to win. So everyone's names are in their database.
I was still very suspicious so I looked them up online and found this to be totally bogus! The check looks very authentic and I'm sure there are many people out there receiving the same thing that will think they have really won! With people having financial problems in these hard times it's more than wrong to do this getting someone's hopes up that they had been blessed with the help they desperately need!
Help to stop them from taking advantage of people today!!
