Complaint / review text:
I received a letter from Skyline International Group in my mailbox on 09-23-2011, saying that I had to call a Mr. David Shaw. I got my daughter to called him for me so she can be on the phone with me to hear what was going to be said. Upon calling through the operator service to get through to London Mr. Shaw answered the phone and told me that the letter was real and yes I have indeed win $250,000 dollars (US). I asked him how did I win so much money because I don't remember entering my name in anything. Then he told me that I had entered a sweepstakes at Walmart last year and they have been trying to get in touch with me since then. He then told me that I will receive another letter in the mail with a check for a partial payment of the winnings. When I indeed received the letter along with the check I got my daughter to call him back for me, when he answered the phone, he then told me to take the check and deposit it in my bank account & once I do that, go to the Western Union and send $1,997 dollars (US) to a Tax Agent name Ms. Sandra Torres, 4 Wilson Road, London, England. Once I did that I was to notify Mr. Shaw to let him know that I have done the western union. Mr. Shaw told me once the Tax Agent, Ms. Sandra Torres receives the $1,997.00 dollars (US) Mr. David Shaw will send the remaining sum of $245,011 dollars (US) within 24 hours. When I went to deposit the check in my bank account, the Bank Agent told me the check looks real but to be on the safe side do not withdrawl the money out just in case. On 09-28-2011, I received a call from Mr. David Shaw asking me did I send the Western Union yet, and I told Mr. Shaw that the takes 7 days to clear. When I said that, Mr. Shaw told me to notify him immediately after I send the Western Union.
