Don't fall for the rip off,,, it is illegal
I too received a letter from international claim department, Canada today telling me I won a lottery. I am a hard working grandmother and thank God I had sense enough to research this on the internet.
I called Mr. John Davis at his direct line, 1-416-820-1016 and had no problem telling him that I was reporting his little scam,.... he by the way has a strong african accent, and replied Oh sorry,... I just want others to know don't fall for this scam, the check looks real and the bank is also real.
Its not worth it.
