You Have Received A Scam Letter

dog blueprint
Hello! If you are reading this, you received what appears to be a notification that you won a lottery you never entered (or maybe a notice that the account of someone you've never heard of owes you a lot of money). Sadly, you did not win anything. What you got is a SCAM. If you received a check, you shouldn't even try to deposit it, because it is absolutely, one hundred percent guaranteed to bounce (and you will probably be charged a fee for a bounced check). The scammers are counting on it taking up to 10 days for their check to bounce, but meanwhile they will demand that you wire them money, usually for "taxes" or "fees." Their money is fake (the check they sent you WILL bounce), but the money you send them is real and you will never, ever, ever get it back.

Even if you did not get a check, it is STILL absolutely a scam. You cannot win a lottery you never entered, especially in a foreign country.

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM! Just throw the thing away.

So what else can you do? Mostly, you've already done it. Just by searching for information, you've done more than many people would. Good for you! But what else can you do? Several things:

First: Scroll down and check the lists of company names, addresses, and phone numbers. If the letter you got has any of those that aren't listed here, please leave me a comment (scroll down and click the link that says "Post a new comment," and it's fine to leave an anonymous comment). I'll add the information to the lists here.

Second: Throw the stupid thing away AND warn your friends and family.

Third: You could report it to your local authorities, or give it to the US Postal Service for investigation - there's no question this is mail fraud. But the sad truth is that there's probably not much that can be done. That's what makes these sort of scams so attractive to scammers. So the very best thing you can do is not fall for it yourself.

More variations for your list
I received one of these letters today with the "Peter Marsh" name but it also references someone named "Sandy Melvin". The address is 27 Kings Road, Southgate, London E7 8BP. The company name is "Harmony Sweepstakes Prize, Inc." and the phone number appears already on your list. That is how I was able to find your post. Thanks for the info and I hope that you will add this so that others might find it!

Thanks,

Thanks for the info, when I called the number, I got a busy signal, so I started to do some research on the internet and found this. Glad it was here. This letter actually got to me all the way on Okinawa Japan, on a military installation! The info of Companies and names you have posted cover all the ones in my letter, so I don't have any new info for you to post, just wanted to say thanks!

Re: Harmony Sweepstakes scam
Why is it that when we are at our lowest these letters tend to appear. I almost fell for it too. As a matter of fact, we opended up a seperate banking account and deposited our first check into it. We knew better than to deposit it into our existing account. Regardless,we went too far. Thank you!!!

Hallmark Sweepstakes Scam
Names included are: Brenda Carsley, Matt Gould, who is the guy who answers the phone #s 01144-784-795-3293 & 01144-784-795-4327, Melissa John"Manager Accounts Department", and Certha Bailey"Vice President k". Original Letter came from address:5 Chelsea Road, London, UK. Address to Western Union the cash from your first check: 1 London Road, London, England w8-7kj Attn: Anita Clarke (for the UK taxes). Fortunately my bank was very cautious about receiving a Cashier's Check from a Florida bank (which does exist) and put a 10 day hold on the funds after not being able to contact anyone from the bank via phone. Unfortunately, I will have to pay the international phone call charges since I have entered many of these "lotteries" in the recent past. If I hear ANYTHING to the contrary of our current position, I will re-post with the good news. Thank you for having posted this to begin with.

Yup just got a letter from HallmarkSweepstakes
Person that wrote the letter and called me is Matt Gould. Number is 01144-784-795-4327. They dared to send me a cashier's check claiming that it's a fee for the taxes that they will take out from my other winnings. The check looks really legitimate and there's even a real bank that it's drawn from...scary stuff. I'm reporting it to m local better business bureau here in hawaii...BEWARE IT"S A SCAM!!

Hallmark Sweepstakes Prize Inc.
Here's the deal. We did get one of those "you've won" letters from "hallmark sweepstakes prize inc. What is the actual scam are they trying to pull. We decided to actually call the number and the person listed on the letter and he told us that we really did win and to wait for another letter in the mail. He then advised us to call us immediately once we receive that letter. Well, today, we received that letter along with a $3100 cashier's check in our name. We know it was too good to be tru so we decided to research on it and thats how we came upon this site. What are we supposed to do with this check? And what is the scam exactly?

Re: Hallmark Sweepstakes Prize Inc.
It varies. One way it works is that even though the check bounces, it's still sent to the Florida bank with your account information on it - so they get that info.

Another way is that they ask you for some of that money back - fees, or taxes, or whatever, because it usually takes 10 days for a check to clear, and you think you have the money in the meantime.

Applegate Sweepstakes, Inc.
Thank you for your website. I, too, received this "scam" letter. Usually I toss such drivel in the dust bin but this notice came at a time when I am weak from needing funds so desperately. I almost called but decided I should do some research. I live in a very small town in southeast Washington state. How in the world did they get my name and address?

Thanks for your great website and information.
