Complaint / review text:
I received in the mail a letter from Reader"s Digest. The letter came in a plain white envelope, post marked from Canada. It also had a check in it for $3,481.10. The check was made out from AIG Annuity Insurance Company
The letter said I had won a lump sum payout of $255,069.00. The check I received was to cover any charges that may be required befor I recive my funds. It was singed by Jonathan Walsh, Prize Disbursement. Nice pictuer of him too.
To receive my funds I was to contact Paul Givon or Erika Cohn at 1-912-480-0353 to activate my claim before I deposit the check in my bank.
When I called the man was very Vague about how I won the money. He said I had to put the check in my bank and then call him back. At that point he would get the information he need to put the rest of the money into my account. Big Red Flag went up in my head.
I looked Reader's Digest up on the internet. Checked for Sweepstakes rip off and found out the letter was a rip off. My big concern is people who would take this serious and not think to look in to it before they put the money in the bank.
