Now when I call to start the process I was advise to go cash or deposit the check and to call back. When I call to get more information I was advise once I have the funds $3980.00 do a money gram. The gentelman (with Jamacian acent) gave me the directions on what to put on the moneygram, which was another ladys name and another city in Canada. Once they have the control number they will schudule for fedex to deliver my winnings $445, 000.00 within 48 hours.
Platinum financial services inc could not be found in yellow pages
The check was from: Dove Dove Machines Co., inc PO Box 179 Springfield, Ohio. Drawn on Huntington National Bank. The company could not be found in the yellow pages. I called the bank to verify the check and the check was good. THE RED FLAG: The company is from Canada, why is the check drawn from a business in Ohio? Jason told me REPEATLY "Do not tell any one about this, and don't take the letter with me to the bank or the western union office."
They are still waiting on me to call back, know I'm holding this check.
