I received a letter from President Choice Financial Group stating that I had won $100, 000! Seemed too good to be true...and it is. After careful research, the bank that wrote the check that was also enclosed said that it was a scam. Just wanted to let others know of this scam, so no one loses money! Hopefully these scammers will be caught soon enough and receive just punishment for their crimes. I have attached the letter that I received to let others see that it's too good to be true.
