If you want to learn how to minimize your taxes and keep more of your eBay profits, this is the place to be! I was quite flattered when he described the same types of scams and gave the same explanations and advice that I gave in this hub and my related hub on scams that recruit people for work at home jobs ( ) that are nothing more than disguised money laundering for criminals operating from third world nations. Checked my PO Box today and received a letter with a return address on the envelope of PO BOX 23004, 7560 FRESH CREEK, ANDROS ISLAND, BAHAMAS. The City of Halifax (1841-1996) was the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, and the largest city in Atlantic Canada.1 Halifax was also the shire town of Halifax County.
Hi I’m from Australia and have received one of these letters from Reader’s Digest Finance Department informing me that I COULD be the confirmed sole winner of a $55000 Gold Number Giveaway. So, between Canadian postmark and telephone numbers, florida address and California bank, this all added up to be too good to be true. I recently received a phone call from a rather obnoxious man who informed me I was eligible for a free gas card. Made our phone calls as per letter waiting for them to request money or a credit card number. I then was told to send $2920 to another contact person in North Carolina to process.
These jerks are so stupid they used the same telephone (902 412 8972) number in the Chuck’s letter and all I had to do is google the number which then linked me to this page. I received letter and check from Allen and Health Financial Holdings contact of Judy Freeman at 705-350-0125. Once again, profits from the fair would finance the completion of Flushing Meadow Park.
I called the number and they had me on hold for some time, which I used to look up information on the internet. I called the bank the 2450.00 cashiers check was drawn on…and no such routing number The letter I received was the same , to deposit the check and send the money in. These people should be shot. As to reporting it, you can call the fraud division of your local police and/or sheriffs department.
You could also contact American International South Insurance Company and let them know that their checks are being forged. I noticed that the telephone number that they had you call was from Canada, but I was surprised to see that they want you to send the money to Dallas, TX as these people generally want to get the money out of the country fast. Well, the guy explained to me what to do, and then told me congratulations and hung up the phone.
