SHOPPERS SWEEPSTAKES FRAUD ENTICES YOU WITH "NON-RESIDENT TAXES" LIE
I received a letter in the mail, with no return address, and upon opening it a check in the amount of $4980 fell to the floor. The letter, signed by Barbara Bryan, stated that I was one of the declard winners of the SHOPPERS SWEEPSTAKES held on July 5th in the 2nd category. My serial #498561256 drew the lucky winning NO 49-55-77-80-02 and I was therefore entitled to the sum of $250, 000 from a total prize money of $5 Million that was to be shared with the other 20 declared winners...hmmm, isn't $250, 000 multiplied by 21 (myself and the other 20 winners) a total of $5, 250, 000? Anyway, my claim number, WA/SDH-0101, had been assigned to the North American Affiliate and the enclosed check, for $4980, was to be deposited in my bank and then immediately followed by a phone call to my claim agent, George Stanly at 1-647-894-4352. I was to then go to the nearest Western Union office and wire $2995.00 as my winnings had imposed a Non-Resident Tax in that amount. I asked George who sponsored the SHOPPERS SWEEPSTAKES and he told me it was Wal-Mart and Home Depot...I've never been to Canada...Wal-Mart is based in Arkansas (one of the 50 United States)...Home Depot is based in Florida (one of the 50 United States)...why do I have to pay a Non-Resident Tax??? George had no answer for that. I tried to explain how we pay our taxes here in the U.S., you know...by April 15th...but George apparently had to immediately relieve himself, or something...he hung up on me!
