I also received a check in the amount of $3,900.00 from Fleet Funding. I did alot of research and this is a scam. There must be something we can do to put a stop on this kind of stuff. Also, I strongly feel that there should be some sort of legal ramifications to these individuals even if they are in another country.

CHECK IS FROM: ON TOP HOME IMPROVEMENT, INC (705) 770-0768

DAMASCUS, MD 28872

BANK CHECK IS DRAWN FROM: SPRINGS NATIONAL BANK OF MARYLAND
OLNEY, MD 20832
**************************

I was so excited to see this check! I thought it was real! It looks like a real check, and I’m always entering stupid contests and gambling here and there, so it could be possible I entered some lottery somehow, somewhere, right!?!? Yeah wishful thinking is more like it. So of course, first thing, I hit the internet and google: WORLDWIDE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY, and BAM! Scam this and scam that. Crap. What’s really lame, is the bank is real, even the company on the check ON TOP IMPROVEMENT INC is real… soooo why can’t this check be real? GET REAL. Old addages ringing in my ears… cant get somethin for nothin… if it seems to good to be true, blah blah blah. So, I’m gonna call this guy on monday, to see if he asks for my personal info (which I’m sure he will) and I will let you know what he says, ;)

also, when typing this letter, I left the typing errors as they appeared in the actual document. Something smells fishy.

and one last thing, I feel pretty bad for the banks and the legitimate businesses who’s names are being used in these scams, I’m going to contact them as well to see if they are aware of the situation.

I just received a notice from “Bristol Rovers” Award certifying that I just won $85,000. There is also a check enclosed for $2,289.42 that I am to cash and than call agent “Brenda Smith”; however when I called some man answered and didn’t seem to be very enthused when I asked him if I am really a winner. He stated “yes, ma’am you are, just cash your check and call us back.” I thought there would a little more excitement on their end of the phone so I decided to google this and what I found is that it is a SCAM. My husband and I were so excited thinking we may be able to buy us a bigger home. There should be some sort of legal action we can take against people that deliberately are robbing citizins and getting there hopes up for a better future? Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

March 26, 2007 at 6:39 pm
(25) karen gaston says:

I received the same exact email today from “Bristol Rovers Award”. I called to talk to Brenda Smith (Agent) and was put on hold. I talked to a man that seemed to be in a hurry to get off the phone with me when I asked if this was a scam. He kept insuring me to cash the check and call them back and they will tell me where to send the money. Why can’t we cash the check? It looks real so why not and then not contact them back and get what should be allowed to us just for putting us through the emotional roller coaster ride and than to find out we have been SCAMMED! Thanks to google for making this information possible to us.

Yes, we too were sent this exact letter but thinking this looks too easy my husband said let’s check it out on the internet. Thank God he did. I just wonder how the legitimate bank is dealing with this.
The check looks so real you wonder why people could not cash it. I,d like to know what would happen.

I also got the Bristol Rovers Award that said to contact Denis Parker at 780-709-2012. I have medical debts and I stupidly deposited the check on March 26 and sent to Elizabeth Klien as Denis instructed me to do – $2,100 to Elizabeth and the remaining amount of the $2289.42 was to pay for the Western Union fees she picked it up on March 27 and it is now April 6 and the monies deposited in my account for $2289.42 was returned now I have $2289.42 less in my account. I was such a fool!

I received the same letter from Bristol Rovers Award in the mail that Shonda wrote above. I had called and spoke to Elizabeth King and she said they did not want any personal info but for me to cash the check.
But when I questioned her what do I do after I cash the check, she was very vague about it.
If anyone else knows more about this, let me know.

TO ANY ONE READING THIS SITE, I AM WRITING TO GIVE A HUGE APOLOGY TO A MR. HOWELL LINN, MR. DAVID MOORE, AND A MR. ROBEN NOWLENS. FOR DOUBTING THEM ON WINNING THE LOTTERY OF THIS PROMOTIONAL SITE. I HAD ALREADY BEEN SCAMMED ONCE AND THEN ALMOST A SECOND TIME. MY HUSBAND AND I STARTED DIGGING AND GOING TO EVERY FRAUDULANT SITE THEY HAD LISTED. EVERY WHERE I TURNED THEY WERE ASKING FOR MONEY, AND WE ALREADY GAVE UP A WEEKS PAYCHECK AND WAS TOLD THAT THIS WAS ALL WE WERE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY, UNTILL THE WINNINGS ACTUALLY GET TO THE INTERNATIONAL LOTTERY BOARD, WHERE IT IS TURNED INTO CASH AND ALL YOUR CIRTIFICATES ARE CLEARED FOR DELIVERY. WELL THEY ASKED FOR MORE MONEY AND MORE THAN THE FIRST TIME, AND THE KIND OF MONEY I DO NOT HAVE, ESPECIALLY AFTER PAYING FOR A FUNERAL FOR MY 18YR OLD SON WHO DIED IN HIS SLEEP. THIS MONEY WAS AND IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US, NUMBER ONE GETTING OUR SON A HEADSTONE, CATCHING UP ON BILLS AND OUR 16YR OLD WANTS TO GO OVER SEAS, HE WANTS TO BE A MISSIONARY. AFTER THEY ASKED FOR MORE MONEY I WAS SO UPSET WE JUST DO NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY, AND AFTER PAYING SOME FEES A SECOND TIME AROUND WE WERE TOLD THAT WE WOULD HAVE OUR WINNINGS IN 48HRS OR LESS AND THEN IT TURNED INTO 3 OR 4 DAYS. SO I E-MAILED MR. HOWELL LINN AND STATED THAT I WAS GETTING READY TO TURN HIM IN ALONG WITH EVERYONE INVOLVED DUE TO THE FACTORS. THIS GOT ME NO WHERE EXCEPT THE FUNDS PROLONGED AND FEELING REALLY BAD. THESE MEN ARE FOR REAL I HAVE CHECKED EVERYTHING OUT AS FAR AS YOU CAN GO. SO BE CFAREFULL OF WHAT YOU SAY, AND CHECK THINGS OUT BEFORE AUTOMACTICALLY ASSUMING THEY ARE SCAMM ARTIST. PLEASE PRAY I STILL CAN GET MY WINNINGS, AND FOR ME TO COME UP WITH THE MONEY TO GET THEM HERE TO DALLAS.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOOD LUCK !!!

(44) Cora says:

I received a letter from bristol stover as well, and it is definately fraud. I called the number given from my office phone (which is a private number) and I was asked to deposit a check for 2390.59 into my bank account and then call back when it was cleared. I was then supposed to mail this check to an address that would be given to me AFTER the check cleared and they would then mail me a certified check for 80 thousand dollars. When I asked Mr. Edward King of Westernstates Investment Groups what I had won and why I was getting this money he could not come up with a good answer to my question.

I have reasons to beleive that the way that this man gathered my information is throught the college that I am currently attending and I will be investigating this with them.

April 16, 2007 at 8:42 pm
(45) charles says:

Just today I recieved a letter from Bristol Rovers, and they gave me a check for $2390.59. I called 604-825-1341 as directed by the letter. The man that I talked to name was Edward King and he said deposit the check and when it clears to send the money to the address that he would then give me. This was supposed to take care of the tax on the $80,750.00 that the would send me after that. I went to my bank said it was a scam and if I cashed the check it would be sent back as a bad check and I would have to pay for it! They informed me that it has happened to other people and the ended up regretting it latter! So be advised that this is a scam and do not be fooled!

April 16, 2007 at 9:37 pm
(46) Brian says:

I figured out the scam on Bristol Rovers. All of the area codes are listed in Canada. When you deposit a check, it can take up to a month at a time to clear and by then you have sent them your check which is good and by the third or fourth time that the bank is returned the same check that you deposited, the culprits have your money and have moved to a new address. Thus, you are charged a fee for a bad check and the amount is subtracted back out of your account even though you wrote a check for the same amount to someone else, leaving you high and dry. DOOO NOTTT send them any checksunless you just feel like giving away money, then you can send it to me. Like the supposed Elizabeth King, “Well if you do not want the $80,750.00, you can always donate it to charity.” What a line, don’t fall for it.

****************************************
I receive this mail and was really had a feeling of holding lot of money.But i had a feeling of fraud on this, cause i never entered in any lottery or any scheme over internet / tele calls. This gave me suspicions. In the early morning i searched in google for these awards & found these are scams. Thanks for sharing these scams over net, it helps many people stand out of fraud and loss of hard earned money.

Hello!I received a letter from Marriott Financial Services saying that I had won 95,000 and there was a check enclosed for over 3,000 saying that this check will cover the fees. I called this agent and they said that Fedex wil deliver this 95,000 check and that I need to show two forms of identification. I’m going crazy and wondering if this is a scam? Please help!
Thankyou

May 3, 2007 at 1:00 pm
(60) Darcylynn says:

I just wanted to tell everyone again NOT TO CASH THESE CHECKS!!!!! we were just informed as of today that the bank is pressing charges on us to think we cashed a check that we thought was ours to cash and now we are being arrested for something we had no idea …wish we had found this site prior to the check …. any way the bank informed us that the company “On Top Home Improvement” had their checking account info stolen and that someone is scamming people with this companies forged and stolen checks…. so please do not cash these checks…. also the bank informed us that when the checks are deposited in someones account that the scammers steal your account info …. hope this helps

May 3, 2007 at 7:04 pm
(61) Jen says:

I just found out today please don’t cash these checks(especially the checks from the Marriott Financial Services) they are just as phony as a$4.00 dollar bill the checks are counterfietThis scam doesn’t require you to send your money, instead they send a cashiers check saying that this will cover the fees of your winnings. What they want is to get you to cash the check at your bank and send the cash back to them to claim your winnings which is supposed to be sent by fedex. These people need to be put under the jail!!!!

Recieved a check from Steed Media Group, Inc. DBA Rolling Out. Checked the phone numbers out and they are all out of Canandea, yet the account that the check is written on is supposedly in Atlanta GA. Some people think you are so stupid. How do I go about reporting this to the company that the check is supposed to be from and also the bank that is suppose to hold the account? These people need to be stopped.

May 7, 2007 at 8:50 pm

I received the letter and check today. Man the check looked REAL and legit! It had the Marriott logo on it and everything. I, however trust nothing sent to me in the mail..LOL…so I took it to my bank…and it’s a scam! We contacted Citibank because that was the name on the check and they informed us that it is being investigated. I’m so mad! What if I would have just cashed the check! I really hope they can bust these people! They are hurting innocent people man!

May 14, 2007 at 5:56 am
(66) Jason says:

Here is the scam. It initially worked 2 ways.
1.) They sent you a check which was drawn off of a company that is being liquidated. Therefore the account still exsists but had a small amount of funds in it. You go and cash this check and use the funds to send money to them. It’s called money laundring. You essentially send them the money to put into the bank account they are using. They do this more than once allowing them to collect real cash from people. Instead of overdrawing an account and getting caught. Not subject to immunity laws. You can goto jail for doing it. Weather you have knowledge of the scam or not.

2.) They send you a check. You try to cash it. it’s reported to thier bank that there is an attemtped withdraw from the account. They pay the 35$ it is to put a stop payement on the check. By then you have withdrawn the money and sent it to pay for the fees. Once returned to your bank as stop payement you are left with the debt of funds that were withdrawn off your account that was not there. And you get the short end of the stick and they get paid. According to the FBi this scam gathers about 8-9 million US dollars a month. Yes it is that huge.

Couple things to keep in mind.

1.) No lottery every will ask you to pay fees before you claim your prize. Yes you DO have to pay taxes on it. If it’s legit. But no one pays those taxes up front except lottery winners. And by US law those taxes are taen from the actual drawing total. You sign a waiver to insure the taxes are paid to the irs as proof of tax payment when you file yearly taxes.

2.) Giving your bank account number is irresponsible. Please remember that if you feel it necissary to to cash the check they send you. To wait until it clears before you send any money. Do it in a new account that your bank will be glad to supply you with. And ask your bank to put you on whats called a blakout. A blackout means that the account is flagged to allow no 3rd party transactions like money transfers period.

3.) Never use an email or accout attached to paypal. They will withdraw the lockout amount through paypal at 5500.00 and cash out.

4.) If you recieve a check, make a color copy of it and the envelope it was sent in. If it comes back returned, stolen or anything else. And you live in the united states. Please goto the FBI website and file a fraud complaint. When you file the complaint be sure to tell them you have the envelope it came in. And get the check sent to them from the bank. They may ask your bank for a copy of your fingerprints. Or you directly.

5.) Do not call them. Some scams are designed to charge your phone service when you call them incredible rates. Even if it doesnt seem that bad. Here is how it works. They goto a website like Cognigen. or one of the many others. They get a free business and then sign thier services up for paid long distance service. Then you call the number. It may seem harmless at the $5 charge on your phone bill. But essentially they are getting paid for your call. It’s an answering service and 3$ will goto the phone company and $2 to the business owner. They desguise the email as a winning lottery you call. 500,000 people call due to email and have a $5 charge on thier bill right? Wrong, that equals 2.5 million dollars made divided by the $2 they make after paying phone company. Bam! They make 1.2 million for your calls. Which technically they cant get in trouble for because you did in fact call them. Sometimes this is the only thing happening when there is no sent check involved. And all they could be hit for is harrasement. Which they cant be expedited to the US for. If they do send a check. They are playing with fire and have several things going on.

Simply put. A lottery will call you. If you ask them to call you and they say they won’t. Then it is a scam. Think about it a moment. Whens the last time someone won at publishers clearing house and the person wasnt home. Do you honestly believe that if the person calls them they wont call back. That’s thier job. And no reputable company/lottery will every tell you they wont call you. Defeats the purpose of having a company that gives away money to the public if you treat them like dirt.

And last but not least. No lottery will ever, ever, ever, want your next of kin. That is handled through probate court and your lawyer based off your will and testament. To protect you from this very thing.

I just received a snail mail letter stamped “Expected” from a return address of:
R.O.M. Report Office Matters
331 W. 57th Street, Suite 500
New York, NY 10019-3101

They claim I have been a “confirmed identification holder” as “known individual” for the “monies prize”. The monies prize is listed at $2,000,000.00.
However, they require that I send them a $20 procedures completion fee, and that the mailing of my winnings will be sent directly from the “identified independent sponsors”.
I take it that this is a scam?
Can these people be arrested for fraud?
Let me know if there is anything I can do about this. Thanks.

Folks I receive at least 13 of these from all over the world aweek, and the new one now involves money orders they send you and you keep 10% of the money and forward the rest. Whatever the amount of the money orders you cash they will be returned to your bank and it will be deducted from your account because they cancel the money orders right after finding out that you cashed them but you have already forwarded the money Hence you’ve been ripped off again! The main character in this his name is Mark Aides from the U.K. and he is a smooth talker! Watch Out nothing is free!! Keep saying that NOTHING IS FREE!!

OK, I was stupid enough to email back info (not account #’s, just a general name and address). Does anyone know if anything bad will happen as a result of simply emialing back? If they actually send me a check should I just throw it away, or is there a place I can report this? Would it even do any good?

I am the father of 4 wonderful young-ones, the two boys are ages 3&9, the two girls are ages 6&7. There mother says I died in the accident and we are in the process of getting a divorce.(be cause I guess I’m “not the man she married” If you want to “talk” my phone # is (701)-252-1532 or u can email me at jtesky@csicable.net or REG. post address: 1120 3rd

3. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY I HAD SPENT ON THIS PROCESS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY NECESSARY DOCUMENT NEEDED ON THIS DELIVERY IS COMPLETED?

THEN LET ME TELL YOU ONE THING, YOU ARE VERY LUCKY THAT YOUR PACKAGE WAS INSURED IF NOT CUSTOMS OFFICERS COULD HAVE CONFISCATE YOUR PACKAGE THAT WAS THE REASON WHY THEY WERE REQUESTED EVERY COVERAGE PAPERS BEFORE THEY CAN RELEASE THE FUND TO YOU AND I THANK GOD THAT EVERY PAPERS NEEDED BY THE CUSTOMS TO RELEASE YOUR PACKAGE FOR THE DIPLOMAT IS NOW COMPLETED AND YOUR PACKAGE HAS ALREADY BE RELEASED.

I AM OLD ENOUGH TO BE LYING FOR YOU, I AM 67 YEARS OLD AND WILL BE 68 BY OCTOMBER 28 2007 AND WHEN YOU ARE TALKING TO ME YOU DONT EVEN PUT A SINGLE REGARDS ON ME . I WAS HAVING A HEART PROBLEM NOW DUE TO OVER STRESS ON THIS ISSUE AND MY DOCTOR SAID THAT I HAVE TO REST FOR SOME TIMES NOW IN ORDER TO REGAIN MY HEALTH.

SO I HAVE TOLD YOU WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE UNDERSTANDING AND REGARD ON WHAT I DID FOR YOU, YOU WILL JUST ASK ME THE KIND OF PRESENT YOU WILL BUY FOR ME WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS FUND FOR WHAT I HAVE DONE FOR YOU.

Hey this Nigerian past president, Gen. Obasanjo really has influence over people including me!! He looted over 180 Million US Dollars and I posted he looted 2 Billion US Dollars in my last comment. 2 Billion US Dollars is less than what Governors of some oil producing states in Nigeria steal. Meanwhile their is no power supply, bad Roads and schools are on strike because teachers salaries are not paid, gas is sold at an outrageuos price and over 70% of the Youths who cannot send extortion emails are Armed Robbers killing and tomenting people everyday. In Nigeria a Frustrated University graduate can shoot a human being just to steal a $30 cell phone!! That is what the bastards so called greedy politicians have turned the 6th oil producing country in the world into!!! Hoping US Governemnt can do something about Nigerian Leaders because they are the cause of these scam emails we receive everyday from their frustrated Youths. To a Nigerian Youth scam is an alternative to Armed Robbery or maybe Kidnapping of foreign Expatriate and asking for Rason.

The Yahoo&Microsoft Lottery lottery has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Microsoft lottery has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the interactive Lotteries Board Commission.

Sincerely,
Dr. Garry Richmond.

ANTI-TERRORIST & MONETARY CRIMES DIVISION
FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
J. EDGAR HOOVER BUILDING
WASHINGTON, DC USA

ATTENTION: BENEFICIARY

This e-mail has been issued to you by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to Officially inform you that we have completed an investigation on an International Payment in which was issued to you by an International Lottery Company which was designated to be allocated from Nigeria. According to our completed investigation, a Multi-National Lotto company located in Nigeria launched a Lottery System whereby a Software is built to randomly select different alphabets and then select different domains and whichever e-mail seems valid and working wins.
According to our discovery, your e-mail address has legally won you the sum of $1,600,000.00 (One Million, Six Hundred Thousand US Dollars). We discovered that your e-mail address won the Lottery as they advertised your e-mail address all over Nigerian websites, TV stations and even Radio Stations for Advertisement in order to lure other people into playing their Lottery. The Federal Bureau of Investigation found out that the Lottery took place last month and when the Lottery Company was contacted they gave assurance that the winning e-mail address has been contacted, however we discovered that people in which have been contacting you in regards to all types of Money Transfers, Winnings are ALL fake.

The impostors obtained your e-mail address via the public notification of your Lottery Winning, they therefore sent you several false letters. You are immediately advised by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to IMMEDIATELY stop all communication with any individual who claims to offer money from an old account, people who claim to work for Central Bank of Nigeria, etc.

We have completed this investigation and you are hereby APPROVED to receive the winning prize stated above as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free as the ONLY trusted agent whom has been authorized to handle this transaction is “Mr. Peter Walter”. According to the Lottery Company, the total sum of $1,600,000 has been deposited at a Security Company (The Hamilton Group) and is hereby Available for you to make a withdrawal.

In order to have the winning prize delivered to you via a Certified Cashier’s Check which shall be issued by Bank of America, you will be required to pay for the following below-

1. Cashier’s Check Conversion Fee ( Fee for converting the International Payment into a Bank of America Certified Cashier’s Check )
2. Shipping Charges ( This is the charge for shipping the Cashier’s Check to your home address )

The total cost of both required documents would cost $475 (Four Hundred and Seventy Five US Dollars) and your check shall be delivered to you within 24 hours after confirmation of payment by your authorized agent. The Federal Bureau of Investigation attempted to deduct the required $475 from your winning prize, however a pre-authorized check has already been issued out and cannot be reversed. You are therefore responsible for the requested fee of $475, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has authorized you to be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free. Therefore, you are to trust ONLY your transaction agent (Mr. Peter Walter).

In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the agent in-charge ( Mr. Peter Walter ) via e-mail. Kindly look below to find appropriate contact information:

CONTACT AGENT NAME: PETER WALTER
E-MAIL ADDRESS: pwalter01@gala.net
You will be required to e-mail him with the following information:

FULL NAME:
ADDRESS:
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP CODE:
DIRECT CONTACT NUMBER:
CURRENT OCCUPATION:

You will also be required to request details on how to send the required $475.00 in order to immediately ship your prize of $1,600,000 via Certified Cashier’s Check issued by Bank Of America, also include the following transaction code in order for him to immediately identify this transaction : INTL-FBI-283.

This letter will serve as proof that the Federal Bureau Of Investigation is authorizing you to pay the required $475.00 ONLY to Mr. Peter Walter via information in which he shall send to you, if you do not receive your winning prize of $1,600,000 we shall be held responsible for the loss and this shall invite a penalty of $8,000 which will be made PAYABLE ONLY to you (The Winner).
Congratulations!
