I received a cashiers check in the amount of $4, 150 from AMEX Financial stating that I have won a lump sum of 95, 000 dollars. The letter stated that I contact Andrew Wallace, claims attorney for instructions on how to process the claim.
I contacted Andrew and he stated that I was one of six people who won a sweepstake. I asked how did I win and he said that it was when I used my debit or credit cards in stores like Target, Macy's, Walmart, etc. I was automatically entered into a drawing.
He instructed me to cash the check then Wire the money to Mary Andersen in Canada. I told him that it might take up to 11 days to clear the check because I had contacted my bank and he said that it should clear in a day. I thought about depositing the check in my bank to see what happens because I would never mail the money unless it cleared. I went on the Internet to find that someone had report a similiar incident except they went by the name Hallmark Financial but they had the exact same address.
