United Access Financial tried to scam me to pay them to receive winning from "Shopper Sweepstakes"

United Access Financial Inc.
International Claim Dept.

Midland, ONT L4R1Y5

On June 19, 2008, my husband received a letter from the above company along with a check in the amount of $4, 890.00 from United Access Inc. in Beaufort, SC. The bank that the check was under was "South Carolina bank & Trust in Ladys Island, NC.

The letter went on saying that my husband was a winner from a "Shopper Sweepstakes"., one of the 50, 000 names randomly selected, and that he was entitled to the sum of $250, 000.00. The amount was part of the " total prize money of $5 Million dollars", that was shared among the other 20 declared winners.

The letter gave me an agent, "Lewis Mcgregor" that I was to call him at 1-647-219-4892, before cashing the check.

We called the number and spoke to Lewis Mcgregor, who instructed us to go ahead and cash the check, and then to go to Western Union and send Cash in the amount of $2, 985.00 for Government tax to Janice Snyder at 150 Second Ave., Ottawa, Canada K1P21P. That once the money was sent, call him back with the confirmation number from the Western Union for proof of payment to the Government for tax, then the balance of $245, 110.00 would be sent to us within the next 48 hours by FED-EX

Thankfully I checked on the internet and found a similar scam. What tipped me off was when I asked "Lewis" for Janice Synders Title and Department name and phone number??? His answer was, "I'm not trying to rip you off." Ha ha ha, yes he was!!!!
