I received a check for $6,995.00 from *** *** ***. I was going to deposit it into my bank but called the BBB first to check it out. The letter said I had won $500,000, and to deposit the check and then I would receive further instructions. It was signed by *** *** ***. They had locations all over the world, the US address was in ***, NY.
I did call and talk to *** ***, he told me to deposit the check, then call him back. I will not be depositing or calling him back.
