Global Promotions
MAIL FRAUD You have won $250, 000.000

On Septeber 12th, I checked my mail to find a blank envelope with my mailing address on a label. No return address. The post-office stamp was hard to read and blurry. The stamp was 96 cents and from canada.

I opened the envelope to final a letter from Global promotions with a canadian address, claim number and the words FINAL NOTICE is bold print. The letter was NOT addressed to me. It was more like a flyer than a letter.

It went to to say that I was one of the 3rd category winners of the "The Mega Millions Draw" held on September 15, 2007. It spoke about a receipt with a serial number and listed my winning numbers.

According to this letter I am entitled to the sum of $250, 000 that will be delivered to me by a special courier company.

To top it off, there was a check inclosed for $4, 450.00 which was deducted from my winnings so I can pay the tax clearance fee of $3, 400.00. Listed was a tax agent by the name of Valerie Johnson with the adress 864-756 Main Street, Strathmore, AB Canada. The payment method was MoneyGram or Western Union

I was given a claims agent by the name of Jessica Anderson and the number 1-778-317-5117 that I had to call to begin the claims process. The letter is signed by Sean Williams a promotions manager.

At first I was like YES! I can pay for school, but quickly came to my senses! I knew something was not right. The letter is from Canada, the check is written from a Texas bank. Then I won a lottery game LAST YEAR that I don't even play!

I quickly began to google everything on the letter. Global Promotions INC is a real company but helps business people market their product around the world. Pavillion Bank is a real bank in Dallas, Texas but not at the address listed on the check. Hexter-Fair Title Company is a real company that deals with escrow accounts. It's really crazy how legit all of this could look to someone.

In my gooling, I cam across this site and the report of a similar letter received by someone in Massachusetts. Reading that complaint was like reading my letter all over again with difference names and addresses and the same number. I hope noone falls for this scam!

First thing Monday Morning, I am calling my lawyer and taking the check and letter to the local police station.
