Telco - Maverick Metal Trading
The Mega Milions Draw Mail Fraud Scam Calgary

I received a letter about winning a sweepstakes. It had letterhead from "Telco Incorporated" and check for $4, 450.00 from Maverick Metal Trading Inc. - it is a SCAM!!

FINAL Notice:
We are pleased to inform you that you are one of the third category winners of "The Mega Millions Draw" held on August 15, 2008. Your RECIEPT with seral number 774-88713KN which you received when you purchase a sweepstakes ticket, drew the lucky winning numbers 21-17-34-48-26.

It goes on to say that I will need to contact a claim agent, Kevin Smith at the above phone #. Then he tells to you cash the cash and Western Union the $3, 400.00 to a Richard Sullivan for "tax clearance fee"

I also, received phone calls on Friday, Oct 24 and Saturday, Oct 25th for this same thing except they said I won PCH Sweepstakes - I kept hanging up on them and they would call back - they had my name, address and phone number but wanted my bank name when I refused, they kept wanting me to give them a credit card number - I finally got through to them after about 4 calls and they didn't call back. Today, Monday, Oct 27th I received this letter with all the same info.

I looked up the caller ID #'s:
317-215-6074 (NoVux Communications- out of Greenwood, Indiana)
876-450-9817 - Voice mail of cell phone.
866-925-3830 - there is no listing for (was left on my voicemail)

My letter has the names of; Telco, Inc., Richard Sullivan, Kevin Smith and Jason Oliva (Promotions Manager). The names are; Maverick Metal Trading, Inc out of Texas and the bank is Ennis Banking Center.
The envelope had no return address but had "Southport Mental Health stamped across the stamp.

Please do not fall for this - it is a scam to get you to cash the check, forward money via Money Gram for the Tax Clearance fee and then the check DOES NOT clear and your bank holds responsible. I am going to contact the police about this and the company names used in the letters.
