I was sent a letter on the 17th of July, 2007 from Rainbow Financial Trust /Subsidiary of Rainbow Light that I was a winner of NORTH AMERICAN UTILITIES drawing held on Monday APRIL 12th, 2007. Participants were selected through a computer ballot system, drawn from 149, 000 telephone numbers and utilities bills of the individuals who sign up for the services.
You have therefore been awarded a lump sum pay of $48, 500.00USD cash, which is the winning payout for the series. This is from total prize money of $5, 654, 000.00
shared among the winners.
I also received a $2980.00 for percentage surcharge to be paid as commission on my winning prize to the Lotto Regulatory Board, saving me the trouble, prior to receiving my winnings.
I was to call Mrs. Sandra Myers or Mr. David Hamilton at 1-306-880-1731 as soon as I got this notice to assist in finalizing the payment process.
I called them and they said the check had to be deposited in mine an only my account when done call them and they will finish up my files and I then in return have to send them a check out of my account of $2780.00, I had the other $200 towards my winnings. When they received the check I would in person be awarded the balance. Sounded fishy so I got on the internet and to my surprize I'm not the only one that got one.
Please lets stop all this ripoffs!!!
