I also posted this on another website that reports scams and several people have had this same exact thing happen to them.
As stated above I recieved this check a couple days ago, I called it and spoke with a man I could barely understand, i researched the number and it said it was a cell phone number in Canada but not Toronto. I called like I said, he told me that this was 100% legit and I asked him how I won this as i never enter sweepstakes, he said if I evr shop at walmart or JCPenny that they get names and enter them in sweepstakes OK! so I called Walmart and spoke with a manager, she said they do no such thing and knew nothing of this company.
I too know that you have the choice to pay taxes from winnings but you never get a portion of it first then pay with that, let alone pay the taxes before you get the cash!
I did ask the man what I do to claim it, he said go to the bank and cash the check then call him back and he would tell me what to do next WELL I am taking this to the police in the morning to see what they could do if anything. I might even call back later and tell him I cashed it and see what he says.
my numbers are the same lucky numbers as above, except the bank is:
1901 Mission St
W Santa Cruz, CA 95060
the issuer of the check was :
2042 Armacost Ave
LA, CA 90025
the number I was told to call was 1 905 598 3517 it would be interesting to know if we all had the same claim #’s The man I was to ask for was Mr Phillip Adams!!
