First time ever got one of those, and no, I did not send them my home address and info, no worries. I am sure they got it off some website mailing list so its probably one of hundreds Sad

The question is: are those baitable or would anyone want to bait it?

Plain enevelope posted Canada V6B 3A0 080 (google found 1 previous scam reference coming from there: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Questionable-Activities/Standard-Trust-Inc/standard-trust-inc-scam-prize-753m5.htm )

The form letter is from
THE CONSUMER PROMOTIONS DEPT
14-20 Heddon St
Mayfair
London W1B 4DA
Tel 1-206-855-6722
[email protected]

Instructions in the form letter state that attached check for $4930 (drawn on PNC Bank NJ) with Geico Direct Government Employees Insurance Co, Washington DC address and is for payment of non-resident UK taxes by WU or Money Gram. The check looks pretty good to me, someone may be tempted to cash it or deposit it.

But you are not supposed to do anything until speaking with Jessica Gordon or Phil Taylor at 1-206-855-6722 7 am - 6 pm PST Mon - Sat who will advise you on how to claim the winnings. (but the UK tax *agents* names given are Donna Wood or Bobbie Russell.

All this is for a purported $250,000 lottery win of retail stores (Wal-Mart, Sears, Home Depot, etc....) with form letter signed Bob N Kotto (Promotions Manager).

Should I try reporting check fraud it to the issuing bank or post office as fraud or just pitch it?

I think the bank would like to know about this.

I'd bait them. It could have been dropped into the postal system anywhere in that area, I don't know how traceable it is.

All right then. I called the issuing bank and they advised me this particular check was already reported Smile and should be shredded. Well at least they are on it so that is a good thing.

But the baiting info is here in case anyone else needs to order a pizza or otherwise have fun and tell them how you spent their check.... the lad is available outside of his regular calling hours as evidenced by this call with my beer loving Joe Karpinski Laughing
