Complaint / review text:
Waterhouse Securities, Inc., International Claim Department Had a check for me, $4,980.00 to cover an alleged $2995.00 tax bill on a well deserved $250,000 sweepstakes winning.
I received this mail dated Feb, 16,2009, but did not see it till 3/5/2009 (got lost in the mail pile). I thought this looked legitimate, the check looks real, but their is no 'Free Lunch'! I contacted a Well Fargo Bank branch and had them verify the account information and address, both were bogus. This report is pretty much the same as another I had viewed. I thought it was strange that the company had a Canadian address, but had a American bank name and address.
So, receiver beware, this is not the first grand prize winning offer I have received.
