Complaint / review text:
I recieved a letter in the mail stating that i was a sweepstakes winner from the North American Prize pool in the 2nd category. I Had a sweepstakes # and serial # along with winning #'s.
They have been trying to contact me and i was entitled to $100,000.00 US dollars from a prize of $3.6million along with 36 other winners. By this time read this i was excited!
Having a check for $9,920.00 in hand and the letter, i had to read it twice. I read it to my husband and we both wondering if it was true.
I imediately went on-line to find out more informatiom, finding out that i could not find any business with the name prime meridian or with that address. I called the # that was given which was not a 800# and spoke to someone, being i did not catch a name.
She told me that the check was authorized and i could cash ther check, but i had to pay processing fee with the check for $7,800.00 once my bank cleared the check i was to call her back and send her the money and i will recieve two more check for the rest of my money.
I then went on-line again and found this web-site where i read other similar letters and then new it was not true. Thanks to reading other stories i would of still been trying to find out information.
My next step is to call the bank about the fraud check to let them know which is Bank of america in Ashland, Oregon.
I hope information helps others as it did myself, hope these people get caught, this is not right!!!
