I received a letter in the mail today saying I was the winner of $125, 000.00. I called the number and was asked for the reference #DTL/733569257 and the Batch #55246. I gave those numbers and was told to deposit the check I received in the amount of $3850.00 into my bank and call the number back once it cleared. "Mike" told me that I would then receive a check for the remainder ($121, 000.00).
I called my husband and told him about it and he was very skeptical and kept asking me questions. We both felt that it was too good to be true! I called "Mike" back and asked him again how I won this. He was very evasive and said it was a sweepstakes.
I couldn't remember entering any, but I asked again what I was supposed to do with the check. He explained it again (acting like he was very impatient with me) and I asked him a couple more questions and he got very short with me. I hung up and decided to look up the company, so I did a search for Liberty Trust Financial Corporation and found all of the scam reports. This led me here to add my own report.
I hope this is helpful to anyone who receives this letter and decides to check it out first. I'm not sure what they get out of doing this to people, but I'm glad I didn't take the time to go to the bank and go through all of that mess!
