I received a letter from TD Financial stating I won $450, 000 in a Sweepstakes and Lotterdy draw that occured on June 1, 2008. I didn't visit Canada until July 2008. Along with a letter was a check in the amount of $3950.00, stating the purpose of the check was to assist me in paying the non resident goverment service tax of $2, 700.
Letter also stated that taxes must be paid in full, before the winnings could be released. Contact names on the letter was Larry McKenzie and Tasha Reiley. Checked with the bank on the check, only to learn this bank had no branch at the location shown on the check. I then googled TD financial, and received re-affirmation that this was a serious scam, and that I am one of many who has received the targeted letter.
Needless to say, but said anyway, I hope these people who have chosen to scam others are stopped and soon.
