Being Canadian, you want millions of loonies.

I hear Canada already has millions of loonies.

Yup, and they are all in political office, which is the same problem you guys have down south, too ;-)a

I got the same exact letter from the "so called" HKJC lotteries about ten days ago, and i just emailed the real hkjc lotteries limited, just before looking at this forum. I deposited the check 8 days ago. there was a hold on the check they sent me for 2900 dollars and it cleared today. If it isn't real I'm just gonna keep the money cause my bank has all that protection **** anyway. And if they try to take it back, it wont matter cause my bank will go after the scammers, and not me. I also have a question for you was the check from HKJC or a different company? Mine was from Global Strategy Group. So, i guess I'm gonna take the money out tomorrow, cash withdrawal. Let the bank worry about it. I'll let you know how it works out. And in conclusion, let the scammers come to my house, Cause I'm also a gun toting American.

Oh boy. Did you not read the thread? The check is a fraud and there is NO WAY the bank is going to let you keep the money. You WILL have to pay them back if you withdraw the money.

Read the terms and conditions of your bank account.

I think you'll find in there, hidden away in the very small print, something describing how the bank doesn't really know that the funds have cleared when they release them. They are just assuming that if they don't hear anything within 3/4/5/whatever days they place a hold on the fund, that they are legit.

I think you'll also find in there a clause that states that if the funds are later found not to be legitimate, no matter how long this takes, that the money will be taken out of your account.

I worked in banking, I know how the system works. You are up the creek without a paddle, my friend. The banks have large legal teams working on the wording of their documentation all the time, and you won't have a leg to stand on.

Good luck, you'll need it!

Of course, he can try using the gun he totes on the bank's legal dept. That usually works.... NOT!

That's fine. Take the $2900 out of the account in cash, then put that money in a box somewhere safe in your house. Then you'll know where it is when the tooled-up bailiffs come looking for it.

I've heard of a simular scam, where someone has won a lottery, and the lottery gives a cheque to the unsuppecting person for £100,000 and say's that the person has to pay the £3000 clearing fee once the money shows in to there account (they get them to sign a contract saying that if the don't pay the fees after the money is showing they will be collecting the money back, make's it look legit). So what happens is when the person put the cheque in to there bank the money shows up straight away (doesn't mean its cleared), then the person transfer the ££'s to the lottery of shore account, all look well until the £100,000 cheque bounces and the person is left with a £3000 debt, and being a off shore account you won't be getting the money back. Be careful Bud

Thanks for the laugh:lol:

So you won a lottery you didn't enter, know nothing about, that said you've won big, but you have to pay them money before you get the big Cheque.....:rolleyes:

This thread like the countless emails I get from my bank, and several other peoples banks for that matter, asking, could you please click on this link and gives us your bank details and passwords because we are currently updating our system and need all our customer to logon details or the email "you have a relative in Africa who has died and left you their entire fortune", but you need to send the you account details so we can forward you the money......stupid I'm not, the only place for these is the bin....unfortunuately some people are....

Waiting for the next installment :p
