I received a letter and a check for $3875. It was from Capella Inc.  It was a Wells Fargo Check.  I called the bank and all they could tell me was the account number was real. I also called the number in the letter which is different than the other phone numbers 1-416-828-3220. They told me to deposit the check and call them after I did this.  They said they didn't want any personal information.

Received a letter "winning final notification" from Greenwich Securities, Inc. International Claims Dept. 100 Front St, Morriston Ont H4N-3L4 with call back No 1-416-827-3905.  The letter had a check for $4980.00 and a request to call the sender before attempting to cash the check.  I called the bank instead and I was informed that the check is fraudulent. (Firstrust Savings Bank, Southhampton, PA 18966) Beware..the check looks very real!  I pray to God that no one gets taken advantage of by this scam that keeps showing up every-so-often.

My son got letter and check today!  He smelled a rat when he read the last paragraph.  "Please do not attempt to use this check until you call."  He called Lewis McGregor at 1-416-827-3905 and was told the mail box was full.  I'm grateful for this web site.  Take heed folks.  If it looks to good to be true it probably is!

I received the same letter and would not call the number listed...I realize that this is a scam of some sort, but what is concerning is what exactly the scam DOES... are they collecting phone numbers from whoever calls the listed number and gets the 'mailbox full' message? Would sure like to know what is involved...

I also received a check.  As many of you did, I also went straight to the computer, and started loking up as much info. as possible, with the same results.  My first clue was that there was no return address on the envolope.

I received the check today! Mine was from WaterHouse Securities Inc. and the check shows from Bank of America, Seattle WA 98124. It sure got my hope running high. The check look legimate, but I became a litter leary when I read the bottom of the letter, please do not attempt to use this check until you call. Then when I called 1-416-827-3905(Thank God! from my cell and not my home number) and I received a message that the mail box is full. I still plan on taking the check to Bank of America on Monday to have it checked out.

My mother got the letter from waterhouse securities inc saying to call the number before cashing the check, I called and actually had the guy answer, he immediatly asked for my phone number, when I wouldn't give it to him he got angry and said to either give him my number or hang up and stop wasting his time. I hung up on him. Don't be fooled.

It is interesting that all of these checks seem to be from US banks - the phone number is a Toronto, Canada area code.  Also, the address on the letters does not exist - the postal code is for Montreal, Quebec, not Morriston, Ontario.

This is what the scam is: you cash the check and it goes through.  So far, so good, right?  Then you wire the "tax" money, which gets to the end user.  However, anybody with an ID can pick up the money on the other end, and if they use a fake name and fake ID, it's untraceable (NEVER wire money to someone you don't know through Western Union or MoneyGram-type organizations).  So they have that money.  Then a couple weeks later, your bank discovers that the check was fake and withdraws the money back out of your account.  The perpetrators have your money now and you are out of luck.

I to was almost a believer, I went to Western Union to give the money he told me it was a scam. So he yahoo Lewis McGregor and came up on rip off alert. One thing you pay taxes yearly & you never give money to get money. If you need to pay the taxes you would have pay it to the U.S. Government not the Canadian Government not to a person in Canada. I notify the bank, notify the news channels & the sheriff  department on this scam.

I recieved a letter from Zurich Financial Securities Inc. International Claims Department ...400 University Ave. Toronto On. M5G-1S7 Canada..Office Line..416-821-4133...Enclosed was a check for $4,875..The letter was as follows:

We are pleased to inform you that you are one of the declared winners of NORTH AMERICAN SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on feb 27th 2009 in the 2nd category. We have made many unsuccessful attempts to contact you regarding this winning. You are therefore entitled to the sum of $125,000.00 US dollars.

Then it goes on to say:
The tax amount in USD $2,875 to be paid through WESTERN UNION directly to the tax agent.

The last paragraph states...Please do not atempt (isn't the word spelled ATTEMPT, NOT ATEMPT?)to use this check until you call. We urge you to keep this winning CONFIDENTIAL until your claim has been processed and your cash remitted to you as this is part of our security protocol to avoid double claiming or unscrupulous acts by non participants taking advantage of this program.

(This letter even has alot of miss spelling, they didn't even use spell check)!....Claims/Disbursement agent Mr. Jeff Nelson Direct line 416-821-4133 Congratulations Raymond Mcloud promotion Manager Office hour: 9:ooam- 8:00pm Mon-fri Sat: 9:00am-5:00pm
This letter is FRAUD! Don't fall for it! I sure as hell didn't! I went online and googled the phone number & apparently I am not the only one recieving this crap! How are these people getting our personal information: Name, Address, Phone Number? Why if so many of us are recieving these notices is no one doing anything about it? I hope these individuals get arrested & do some serious time! Good Luck to all!

I received the same letter as Adel, 26 April 2009, above, from Zurich Financial Securities Inc., International Claims Department, Toronto, ON, Canada.  My letter is dated "April 28TH 2009" and says "WINNING FINAL NOTIFICATION."  the letter states that I have won $125,000.00 from "NORTH AMERICAN SWEEPSTAKES LOTTERY held on FEBRUARY 14TH, 2009." The enclosed check, which look authentic, is for $4,875.00, drawn on JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, NA in Syracuse, NY.  It is signed by RAYMOND MCLOUD (Promotion Manager).  My contact person is MR JEFF NELSON at 1-416-732-4173. I am turning this information over to the U.S. Postal Service.  Please be careful.  No one is going to give you something for nothing.

I received a check in the amount of $4,875.00 from JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, NA thinking I won. I haven't been scamed yet but looked up and started investigating and wham all this is a scam. I call the number given to me 1-905-781-2393. They wanted me to Western Union the amount of $2,875.00 to Elizabeth Cunningham 225 Baker St NW Atlanta,Georgia 30313. I wasn't going to call their bluff. I even called my so called representative named Mr. Jeff Nelson the claims/disbursement agent on the letter they mailed to me. They are using the quote "/Do you shop Target, Wallmart, Home Depot, Lowes. They also ask if you have a valid ID because the rest of your winnings will be certified delivered. I don't know why these people are not caught. This is scary. I have notified the Seattle post office and they took copies of all documents and they are reporting it to the FBI. I also called the agent Mr. Jeff Nelson to confront him about the this and he hung up on me. So everyone be on the ALERT. THIS IS A SCAM................
