Received a check in the mail and was given a number to call. Called the number 905-781-2729 and was told to cash the check and call back for tax info. I called the better Better Business Bureau, and they said this was a scam. If you cash this check, you can be reliable for the funds after the check bounces. But you will be responsible for the returned check fees. Plus I was advised that cashing this check, could give the criminals access to my account. If you receive any check from Gold Star Securities Inc. out of Midland, Ontario, the Better Business Bureau would like you to call 1-888-495-8501. We need to stop these foreign criminals, and show the that you cannot take advantage of us Americans any longer.

I got a check from Gold Star Securities.  They are going to great lengths to trap people.  It's legitimate check paper and I looked up the bank and called, it is a legitimate account number under the name of Gold Star Securities.  I feel bad for the people who are struggling or going through hard times who would attempt to go through this process to receive funds and miss all the red flags accociated with it.  They are really hitting hard this holiday season as a friend of mine recieved a check to be a secret shopper; I also received an email stating they were the FBI.

Beware of this scam.

Received a letter in the U.S. Mail from Gold Star Securites Inc., International Claims Department 300 2nd St. Midland, Ontario stating I had won $250,000. To claim the winnings, the letter said I should deposit the enclosed check for $4,995, call Kelly Anderson at 905-783-1975 immediately afterward and send $2,995 by Western Union or Moneygram to pay taxes and claim the rest of the winnings. Mary Brown was listed as the Production Manager. The Check is issued from Keybank, 1 Canal Plz, 7th Floor, Portland, ME 04112. The check number is 69240; routing number is 011200608; account number is 0000032424.

If you Google the Address on the check of Gold Star Securities Inc...... 14 Baxter Boulevard, Portland, ME 04101.....you will find this to be the address of the Portland Housing Authority. Use the Street View hyperlink to view the sign on the corner of Forest and Baxter.....

I ALSO RECEIVED A CHECK AND LETTER BUT DECIDED TO RESEARCH BEFORE CALLING THE NUMBER AND AM I GLAD I DID. HOW CAN THESE PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THIS. PEOPLE PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NOTHING COMES THIS EASY ESPECIALLY $250,000. SENDING A CHECK OF THIS AMOUNT IN AN ENVELOPE WITH NO RETURN ADDRESS SHOULD BE AN AUTOMATIC ALARM. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE CAUGHT AND MADE TO PAY EVERYONE AND ANY ONE THEY SENT ONE OF THESE CHECKS TO FOR EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.

Got the same letter.  I did the internet reserch first before going to the bank and I am glad I did.  I am barely just making it now and to get caught up in the deposit of a fake check would have really hurt me.  Not to mention the stress of the period of hope that I had won something. It is funny that they mentioned the name of a company Lowes where I had put in for a money winning change from a purchase made. Even more hope this was real.  Oh well just my luck which is the only kind of luck I have- bad luck.  I thought no return address on the envelope  and the lack luster tone of the lady I talked to was a hint of " something wrong", guess I was right.

I received the exact same letter stating I won $250.000. A check in the amount of $4995.00 was included with the letter. This is a SCAM.. do not attempt to cash it... these people should be locked up and put behind bars for the rest of there lives. It is unbelievable that these foreign criminals are getting away with it.

Got the same thing you all did. Gold Star Securities Inc.,sent me a check for 4,995.00. I have had this happen before and reported it. These people are nothing but scam artists. I did send copies to the bank they were drawing on and they were eventually caught and shut down. I am going to do the same this time around. Lets hope they go to jail before they take someone's hard earned cash.

my friend got the check in the mail today and was so excited but i was nervous about it i thought it's too good to be true, and her computer was down so i looked it up for her and sure enough i found this site. what a shame she was so excited that's just down right cruel. the thing that threw me off is that they didn't ask for your own money but money after you cash the check. now i know better too boy you just can't trust anything or anybody nowadays. what a world we live in.

Actuall y my mom recieved a check from them and we called and got this confirmation number and was told the check was good to cash. We did cash it and spent some, stupid us. It turned out it was a fraud now we have to pay back the money. We called them from the police department and the lady on the other line told us that it is not her problem it was ours. PLEASE DON'T CASH CALL OR USE THIS CHECK IT IS A FRAUD.

Today, 12/26 I received a letter from Gold Star Securities, Inc. with a check for $4,995 as did several others here.  I was asked to call 1-905-783-1975 and not cash the check until I called them. This being a Canadian number which would have been several dollars a minute, I decided to run the Gold Star Securities and found this website.  It is obviously a fake check.  The check is from Bankatlantic from Florida, 6046, 63-8376-2670. Thanks to all who wrote this in.  I may have been foolish enough to try and cash it.  I hope this is being investigated and that these persons are made to pay for sending illegal things to unsuspecting citizens.  Thank you.
