My husband got a letter and a check in the mail from this company claiming he has an unclaimed award winning of 65, 000.00 It had a check of 3, 185.75 with it to pay for International clearance fee. Then you have to call a number to claim the prize which in the letter gave a claim number to reference for security protocol. I took the letter and check to my local police department who investigated into it and found it to be fraud. I also took the check to a local Chase branch and to my surprise they were notified of the scam through the main branch although this was the first they have had in my area.
I was told by the bank manager that it is being investigated. I left my check and letter with the bank manager after having her make a copy for me to keep. When you call the number to claim your prize you are told all operator's are busy and to leave your name and number and you will be called back. The scam then works by you being told to mail the $3185.75 to an address they give and once they receive the money your winnings will be sent to you. The money is never sent to you and you now owe your bank the $3185.75 because the check is fraud as well. I am glad I didn't do anything until looking into the matter first. I want to let as many people know as possible so they don't fall for this trick. I wish there were something that could be done to catch the monsters behind all this but in the mean time everyone be safe.
