Just like the others that have been reported. Received this piece of mail and hadnt known that I entered an International Contest. Definitely looked like a scam after reading that I needed to pay $2,995.00 in taxes to Canade, interesting. I am going to feel bad with those who may have lost money with this but hopefully nobody does. We all are going through some tough financial times and this scam will look really good to those who need money.

    Ohhh does the body of these two other stories sound identically familiar. Look out for these guy’s too. Got a similar letter in Atlanta,GA stating I had won SHOPPERS SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on Aug. 14, 2009 that I don’t remember entering either. This check is for $4,875.00 and my tax amount of $2,875.00 is to be paid through WESTERN UNION “Directly to the tax agent”. I even called the phone & talked to someone who told me I had won, told me to hang on for moment & the phone disconnected. HMMMMMM. That is when I searched & found this website LUCKILY. Thanks for the warning.

    Premier Financial, Inc.,International Claim Department Western Union/Money Gram scammers who CLAIM I won a large sum of money.. fake check sent. Ottawa Ontario

    I received a fake check for $4,975 with a letter that read, in part:

    “Dear Winner” (If I just won thousands of dollars, why don’t they even use my name?) “We are pleased to inform you that you are one of the declared winners of the INTERNATIONAL SHOPPING SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY” promotions held on……” (I never entered any lottery! You can’t win a lottery you never entered!)

    “In accordance with our disbursment policy…..with instructions to release your funds to you after all clearance has been made. Enclosed is a check for $4,975 deducted from your winning, to enable you to pay the applicable GOVERNMENT TAXES on you big winning.” (Wouldn’t I be responsible for paying my own taxes? How “kind” of them to help me prepay my taxes! And do I owe taxes to Canada, though I live in the U.S.? Hmmm)

    They went on to instruct me to pay my “tax” by means of MoneyGram or Western Union and gave me a claim number. I have heard of these before so did research, and I’m glad I didn’t fall for this scam by these scumballs. Don’t think you can cash the check! Your bank might cash it, but can hold you responsible when they discover the check was a fake.

    They also misspelled the word “advised”, spelling it “advice” instead. Any legitimate winning notification would have taken the time to proof read.

    The letter is signed “Mrs. Brenda Hicks”, and another name included in the letter is “George Stanley, Claim Agent”.

    Don’t fall for it!

    I recieved a letter in the mail stating that i won the international shopping sweepstakes lottery out of Ottawa Ontario.

    The letter states:

    Dear Winner,

    We are pleased to inform you that you are one o the declared winners of the INTERNATIONAL SHOPPING SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on February 7th, 2009(which by the way didn’t even have internet at that time.)

    Then it goes on telling me that i am entitled to $125,000.00 US DOLLARS. There was a check included in the amount of $4,795.00 and in the letter it says it has been deducted from my winnings to enable me to pay the applicable GOVERNMENT TAXES.

    The tax amount is $3,995.00 to be sent by MONEYGRAM!! There are two names given in the letter. Angela Salem and George Stanley and the letter was electronically signed by Mrs. Brenda Hicks.

    The phone number given on the letter is 1-647-830-4118

    This is a scam do not proceed with cashing the check!!!
