Didnt feel good about it and when I called to cancel coulnt get ahold of anyone at the number. Global marketing is also on the receipt. Am I dumb or is this legit?? HELP!! Never again!! ftft was who I made check out to.
More American Cash Awards Complaints & Reviews
Paid $65 for a magazine, tried cancelling the sale. Never received money back or the magazine. This is ridiculous that a company can get away with this many people being scammed and nothing being done about it. I would love to see 60 minutes or 20/20 get a hold to this story.
Contact Rebecca Wild at the State of Colorado Attorney Generals office, (303) 866-5187. This company is being investigated and I’m sure the more complaints they get the better.
Scam. Never let anyone in to your door. Unless they’re doing it through their school.
paid 200 for magazine subscriptions. told we could mail in and cancel within 3 days. did that, sent in a copy of the cashed check, and they haven refunded our money
What happens if you cancel the check right after writing it? I googled the company right after writing the check. When I saw this page. I cancelled the check immediatley!

dollars. [email protected]
I guess I’m not the only one I wrote them a check to for like 65 dollars but felt kind of weird after the kid left the house. So I immediately did everything to cancel the transaction so they wont take the money out, but they still did. That was 2008 didn’t get my money and it bothers me a lot. I even got an Email from a KRISTEN HANSON. That i”ll be receiving it but pure BS. never heard from her again she said they were in the process of changing to a different banks and grate lakes were working hard. Hard to keep our money. [email protected]
Reading the other complaints, my encounter happened in July of 2008. After the seller left, I too felt uneasy with the transaction. After repeated attempts to call and fax my cancellation request to the numbers provided I finally got through. I scanned and attached my cancellation request along with my order. Received an email from the person I spoke with that I would receive refund in 4-6 weeks. Repeatedly calling back, asking for a supervisor all with no results. I was told once they received the money (they are a clearing house only) they would send me the check. Of course I never received it. They are now operating as Monitoring Services Network with the same phone number and address in Denver. Better Business Bureau has logged their complaints as well.
The company American cash awards: called me and said I have a check for 2.5 million and all I had 2 do was pay 1percent of the shipping and handling which was $250, then UPS would bring the check to my house. I told him I thought it was a scam and I would not be sending the $. His reply was that my check was at The Bank of America and I could call (217) 960-4430 and speak. with Bruce Clark he could assure me tht it was not a scam. my next? was y do I have 2 speak 2him? and y come they just couldn’t take the $ out of my check b4 I get it? after talking to bruce I still was not covenced so I called the actual bank of America and I was told tht it just don’t sound right it had 2 b a scam and the only way she could check and see if I had a check at tht bank I had 2 have an account (which I don’t) but Bruce said that he was checking and he did see that I had a check. for the amount of 2.5 million. just not believable for me so I want b sending anyone any $ I don’t have $ to give away and if thay where not scamers then I guess I’m out of 2.5 million.
[email protected] please email me if someone is actually suing I would love to get my friends money back to him as well.
I got the same scam phone call this morning. I actually hung up and called the number back (it is in Jamaica, and the number is 875-394-2334.) When I called them back, they had no idea who I was, but insisted they were legitimate. I asked for their address, and they gave an address in Las Vegas that does not exist. I asked for the address again, saying their address doesn’t check out and they would not give it to me. I asked for the phone number of American Cash Awards in Las Vegas and [Surprise, Surprise] they said it was down and that is why they are using the Jamaican number. I asked then where are you? and he said Las Vegas . . . I said, but your number says Jamaica . . . He slipped and said, “Oh no mon, I am in Las Vegas. Time to hang up! IT’S A SCAM!
My Nana has sent 30, ooo to this scam! If u answer the phone and its a guy with a Jamaican accent that says his name is John Davenport, its a scam. I tried to go to the phone company to get him blocked but they wont do it w/o the police getting involved. They told her they were bringing her 3 million dollars and that they would come eat lunch with her. DON’T BELIEVE ANYTHING THEY SAY! PROTECT YOUR ELDERLY! THEY WILL FALL FOR THIS SCAM.
Well, low and behold! I received the call also and it was from a Jackson Garvey who wanted me to do a wire transfer through Western Union for the amount of $145.00 to go to a Lue Ann Coleman
listed at 1518 Sunset Village Dr. in Ducan, TX 75137. He stated I had won $850, 000.000 dollars. I knew it was a scam when he told me to send money and he was verifying the state I lived in and could not say Oklahoma and stated that he was not famaliar with the state’s name. He also did not want me to kid around with him about doing the wire transfer because he was sending someone to my home around 1:00 pm to hand me the check, but I had to pay for the fees that were involved first and call him when I had done it. He also warned me that he did not want me to waste the time of those coming to my home, he did not want me to fool around with him about sending the money. Can you believe the audacity of this person? I have turned this information over to the police maybe there is some type of bunco squad to handle this
problem. I do believe our only protection is people sharing this info with others.
same..He’s been calling us for over a month from the number 876-254-5653. When we finally answer he tells us the same thing that we have won $550, 000. Then asks us what is 1 percent of the $550, 000. (he’s telling us if we can tell him the percentage, why wouldn’t he already know this!) Anyways so we told him its $5, 500 and he says that’s all he would need from us to send the money. We told him that he could just take it out of the check he wants to send us and continues to ask for our bank # so he can send us the check. he then tells us we know where you live and says our address out loud on the phone. which was a little creepy. So we continue to say if you want to send it you can, where not going to give you our information. Then he hangs up! He calls back again as if nothing happened and goes on pushing for the money. So we hung up, he still calls every now and then to say the same thing. After our interesting phone conversation I looked up the company they where claiming to be “American cash advance” and also found these similar stories. I then called the FBI who said there was nothing they could do to help and because we didn’t give them our info it wasn’t a big deal that these people are calling. This upset me very much these people are pretty much harassing us with calls and trying to swindle us out of our hard earned money and there’s nothing our FBI wants to do about it!
I received a call today from a Michael Angilo and he told me that I have had a check there in their office for over two weeks. I had won 2.5 million dollars along with the 2.5 million dollars I would receive a brand new 2020 Mercedes Benz and would receive $50, 000 in one hundred dollar bills. The thing I would have to do is pay the taxes of $250 and then my funds would be delivered within 45 minutes of me sending the money. I asked him what the name of the company was and he said American Cash rewards. I asked for the address there and the telephone number, he said to me “why are you asking all thses questions. I told him that I had been scammed before and I can not take the risk of being scammed again. I then asked him did they have a website and he became angry stating that I should not be worried about that but worried about how I will receive my winnings. I told him I did not have that kind of money and he said well the company can put the winnings on hold until I have the money available. I again asked him for the website address he became angry again and said “why do you have to keep asking me all those questions and that was not important.” He said the check is written off of Wells Fargo Bank and that he could send me an email with a copy of the check that made out ot me. I told him yes I want an email. He said the email would contain a copy of the check and it would explain about the taxes and that he will do a follow up call after the email. When I got the call there was no number that showed up it just said incoming call.
I just paid over $50 cash to a couple “pre-college program” guys who shoved all kinds of glossy, laminated lists of super expensive magazines at me. After reading above comments re: cancellation & refund nightmares, I’m not sure what to do. And BTW, I believe the company was listed in St Petersburg, FL in this particular instance. The “sponsor” name in my encounter was the same: American Cash Awards. Has anyone found valid contact info on this place’s website? AFAIK, the first line of defense in such cases would be both the consumer’s local and the company’s local BBB. Next would be the consumer’s state Attorney General’s office. However in this case, I believe a lawsuit may be warranted.
The american cash awards co is a wide spread group with many different names this one was located in jamaica the callers had jamaican accents probaly usin fake names like detective williams gen mgr. was Bob Billiah They pretended to help me find the people who had scammed me before . THey would call and say they had some information for me and please call back at 8765788178 and iasked was this ajamaican number they replied no they were in Las Vegas at 3000 las Vegas Blvd much to my dismay I recieved a letter from AT&t thretning to block my Long D9istance Service due to the enormous amount of charges to Jamaica [over 1000 dollars] how can I get these charges charged back to their tel# 876 578 8178 they also requested 2 Money Pak cards for 10000 dollars each I am devaststated I am a widow on a pension they claimed I had won two and half million dollars to be sent to me by UPS . What a fool I was but they were very convincing.
Just received a phone call. I am a third place winner of $350, 000. The reason I won this money is because I pay my bills on time. The name of the company is American Cash Awards! They wanted me to pay them $400.00. Seriously! And they will come to my house to deliver my big check! Yes, they sound Jamaican and claim to be from Vegas. Here is the number they keep calling me from 876-868-7718. Too bad it wasn’t Publishers Clearing House! Don’t Be Fooled!
some here he his new number now
he has new number
I just received a call on my cell from an unknown number, the guy says, “Today is your lucky day sir, you have won five hundred million dollars!” I asked, “who is this?” He states he is from the American Cash Rewards Assn, then ask if I’m John Brown, and I say, “yeesss?” Then he says”Are you still a resident of Louisiana?”, to which I respond yes. Then the phone gets staticy and cuts off. How in the heck did they get my name, number, and where I live? All I got to tell them is they don’t want to make the mistake of telling ME they know where I live, like they told someone else posted above. I’m a Constitution loving American, if you follow my drift.
Same scam 4/11/13. Caller said he was Jams Monroe (like our 3rd President). Phone number he gave was 876 472 0779. He wanted $3000 up front on my credit card for delivery of $2, 500, 000 prize money. I told him my credit cards were all over-limit. and he replied he’ll send money to pay them off, then I could charge his fee to my newly freed up credit card. He actually gave me a routing number and an account number at a small bank in Louisiana, and directed me to call my credit card company to pay off my credit cards with money from this account. I declined to do this. He still continues calling me, but I do not answer the phone.
Just got a call. new number is: 876-467-5561 they are offering 2.5 mil and a bonus mercedes benz
If everyone would just Yahoo the business before you pay anyone you would be better off.
I received a phone call yesterday from a James Nelson stating that he was an agent with American Cash Awards registered through the better business bureau in washington, DC. I had supposedly won $350, 000 and a brand new 2020 mercedes benz that e would ship today to my house by UPS. They covered 99% of everything, all i had to do was pay 1% which was $299. I had to Wester Union the money to them and he asked me not to tell anyone. He gave me a code and told me not to give it to anyone and anyime he called my phone to ask him my code. He said he was located in Washington DC but called from a Jamaica number 876. He then asked do i have long distance calling so that we can communicate back and forth. I asked how did i win this prize and he said because i am a frequent shopper at Walmart, Kroger and CVS. I told him to take the money out of my cash prize and he said that he couldnt. I currently live in GA because im in the Army but Im from Wash DC. So i asked him could i come there to get the prize instead since i dont have the money. He said no, that they had to delive it to my house to confirm my identity and to ensure that i live at the address. When i said i didnt have $300 to give, he said well i can hold the prize until you get the money but i need a date of when you will have it. Once i got off the phone, i goggled them and saw all kinds of scam reports. And i checked bbb.org and theyre not registered through them. He called me later on that day and i gave him a piece of mind. He hung up and called 15mins later as if the previous conversation never happened. I will not be sending them any of money and i hope you do your research before you send them anything
I got a call from a man that said he was with the American Cash Awards and that I had won $2.5 Million $, But I had to pay $400.00 for delivery and Taxes up front to receive it. Is this a scam? I think so.
I am Dave Emmitt, and I have lost over $600K to scammers in the last 5 years. I was tested as a child to have a 165 I.Q., but you sure wouldn’t know it from what has happened to me. I have run a successful business here in Colorado for the past 30 years, and now it’s all gone. I filed bankruptcy last year, my business went under and I almost lost the home I was raised in and I raised my children in. Most recently, I was approached by David White, who has a Jamaican number 876-425-0331. He promised me $2.5M and a BMW Convertible from American Cash Awards in Las Vegas. Why the hell I fell for this is beyond me. I have now sent him over $16K in Green Dot Moneypack Cards, and yesterday he told me he was in Colorado (for the second time), and was delivering my car and the money. He called an hour later saying he had a flat tire. It was the same excuse he used last time. I didn’t hear from him until today, when he called to say that “Mr. Washington” called and the State wanted $4K of taxes. I am finally fed up, but once again, wonder what took me so long. If anyone has any idea how we can get these people behind bars, I would help any way I can. [email protected]
I just received a call from American Cash Awards with a cell # of (876)408-4170. A Jamaican man called himself David Anderson. He said I won $100, 000 because I paid my bills on time. He asked if I would be home at 4:00 today so that an agent from the bank and an attorney could deliver my check to me. He told me to go Walmart or Walgreen and purchase and “register” by getting a Green Dot Money Pack Scratch Card and put $199 on it. Once I had the card, to call him back and number he called on extension 4 and provide him with the number of the card then he could transfer me to an agent with the bank in order to get my prize winnings delivered to me. He told me to take this seriously and said “this is not a scam”. “this is legit”. I immediately knew this was a scam but I just stayed on the line with him to get as much information about this scam as possible. I asked him what country he was calling from even though I already knew the cell # was from Jamaica, per my iPhone caller id. He said he was calling from the New York area but immediately went in to explaining that he was using an “offshore Magic Jack” number. Please don’t fall victim to these people.
I need to know if American Cash Awards is an honest company…
Anytime that you have to pay up front for an alleged prize that you have won, you can be sure that you are being scammed. There are no legitimate lotteries or sweepstakes that require any upfront payment for any administrative fees etc. If you would have truly won a real contest, any processing fee that would be required, which there really shouldn’t be any except for the withholding of taxes, would be taken out of your winnings and not paid by you.
In addition, the information that the Better Business Bureau has on this company is not positive. You can see their input by going to: http://www.bbb.org/us/Find-Business-Reviews/name/american+cash+awards/
So, your initial gut reaction is correct, and you should decline to give this company any of your money or personal information.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

American Cash Rewards — fraud
I found your contact info on one of the complaint boards and I hope you can help me. On 11-05-09 one of the sales reps (scam artists) code 012 came to my door I explained to the boy that I didn’t have the money but I wished that I could help him in some way he went on to completely lie to me stating that I would have 3 weeks to cancel and that all I had to do is call the # on the back of the sales receipt I’m on the line with them now (specifically a MNGR named Donna) and she is proving to be useless. I am furious! On the back of the sales receipt it states that— YOU MAY CANCEL THIS TRANSACTION WITHOUT ANY PENALTY, PROVIDING YOUR CANCELLATION FORM IS RETURNED WITH A POSTMARK OF NO LATER HAN THREE DAYS FROM THE ORIGINAL DATE OF SALE, INCLUDING SATURDAY. I had my cancellation request in the mail at 5am the following morning!
Now I’m being told that I need to provide proof of payment within 6 weeks from the date of payment!? What happened to the line above where it states without any penalty? Please let me know what can be done about this in the meantime I’ll be contacting my bank.
More American Cash Rewards Complaints & Reviews
Well I’m glad you posted this information because I just got off the phone with an American Cash Rewards company that claimed I won 2million dollars, said with no enthusiasm. I spoke with an Indian David White situated in Las Vegas which didn’t want to give me the address and asked me how would I like to receive payment from direct deposit or UPS? UPS? Sure I want UPS a check in UPS ok? Well since I picked this option the UPS driver would have to escort me to the bank where he will write a “secret” 10 digit number on the check. Well is this a new service by UPS? No we have our own UPS company and this is what they do. Well I pretendly know someone in UPS and they never told me about this service. Well again only our company does this. So I said why not just put the “secret” number now and then send the 2million check to me and I’ll deposit it on my own time. Well I told you about a fee. What fee? $200 fee. Why should I pay $200 to get $2million? I have rent, kids, unemployed, etc. Don’t have it right now. Well ma’am I have $200 in my pocket I can lend you we just need to set up a payment plan so you can pay back $250. -It moves up $50 more- Ok well let me speak to a manager because I don’t understand why your stupid company couldn’t take away $200 from my check. And he says his company is not stupid.LOL. SURE. So now another Indian ? Mccarthy comes on the line and states that they didn’t take $200 already because the check was already printed up and requires a signature. Well why not shred the check and make me a new one. Its already in the mail, not possible. -Already I just got off the phone with David White 20 seconds ago!- well ok then he goes on to say that he isn’t going to force me to do it he’ll just give it to the second place winner. So I say ok thats fine but I just researched your company on the internet and it says that you guys are a fraud. Well If you don’t want to believe you just won 2million God bless you and have a nice day. Well God bless you too and I hope you stop trying to scam people. And then he just said BYE! LOL Great conversation this morning! Just made my day!
I just received a phone call from these people. However I won 2.5 million from readers digest. Funny, I don’t read readers digest, and I haven’t signed up for a sweepstakes. Lucky me, some one picked my name. They wanted to know what my “problem” was, because I had not filled out some paper work so I could receive the money. Hmmmm. I told them my problem was that they were a scam and I knew it. The man (from India) explained that he was aware of all the scams and he was not a scam. He also went on to say that the IRS would call me on th phone to get all my personal info. I DON”T THINK SO. After I told him I would look them up on the internet, he then said he would “call back” in five so I could think about all the money I had won. Of course it took less than five minutes to find this website and see that it is as I thought, a scam. Get a life little mystery scam men from India. By the way, he didn’t call back .
I just got off with a guy that said I won 850, 000 dollars but I needed to send him 850.00 When I told him this is America and we don’t pay taxes before we get the money he started assuring me this was not a scam. lol
well i just got a call from the same people saying i won 75000dollars i dnt believe it! i did not give them any information so oh well lol. he said they will deliever my check by the end of this week yeah right believe it when i see it!
I was just called from American Cash Rewards and I was the winner of $860, 000 and all I had to do was to go to Wal Mart and wire Lapoys Sales in Hayward Cal. $1450.00 and they will deliver my check yet to day. I told him that if he can delver the check yet today then when he got here with the check I would give him the $1450.00. He said that his name was Mr. David and the they had rules and they could not it that way. They are very good at trying to get you to trust them they need to be stoped.
I JUST RECIEVED A PHONE CALL FROM A RODNEY STEWART 702-609-7126 SAYING I WON $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS PLUS $100, 00 IN CASH & A 2009 MERCEDES BENZ. I WON THIS AMERICAN CASH REWARD OUT OF LAS VEGAS NEVADA. mR STEWART WOULD HAVE AN OMAR DAVIS AND LEON CHIN TO DELIVER SAID CHECK, CASH & CAR TODAY ON A PRIVATE JET; AND ACCOMPANING THEM WOULD BE A LAWYER BY THE NAME OF GENIEVE LANGILLE SO I CAN SIGN ALL THE LEGAL DOCUMENTS. I WOULD ONLY HAVE TO PAY $349.99 TO PAY FOR INSURANCE IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT OR ROBBERY. WHAT. THIS IS TERRIBLE HOW CAN PLACES & PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH DOING THINGS LIKE THIS TO HARD WORKING PEOPLE. WHAT CAN WE DO LEGALLY?
American Cash Awards called me with a 2.7 million dollar prize from PCH if I send them $500 via Western Union. He says he is Jerry Makeit (876) 461-4016. Another guy called (876-350-3988 (both sound Indian) to back up this guy’s story. The thing that confuses me is that this guy has called at least 50 times in the last 4 days. Sounds too persistent for $500. I have begged him several times to stop calling. Told him I would call the police and he said he would gladly talk to them. I called PCH who assured me they only deliver winnings with their prize patrol. Thanks to all for your posts.
im going thru this right now as we speak his name is james peterson wanting me to give him 250 for insurance then ill get 250, 000 back i told him i only had 150 he talked to his manager and he said that was ok that when i get the money i can give him the other hundred they are gonna wait til tomorrow im asking questions left and right he also said that he is not looking at the numbers on the card its so i can add the money to that card WHAT SHOULD I DO?
My mom just got a call about 30 minutes ago from a Amy Whitney (213-221-8811) who states she is from the Federal Gaming Commision and that my mom had won 850, 000.00 and a new car. All my mom had to do is go to Wal*Mart and purchase a Money Pak Reload Card for 450.00plus taxes so 496.00 and then call her back so they can get the check and car to her in the morning. She also asked if my mom wanted this to be public or non public. My mom (who is old and has a bad heart) said doesn’t matter. My mom stated that she had to call her son and see if he would help out. I tried to call Ms. Whitney back and got a voice mail stating that ” I have reached the Gaming commision, sorry I can’t take your call, but if you would leave your name and number I will call you back. Within 10 minutes she called back. I talked to her and asked her some questions. I told her that I am a private investigator and wanted to go over a few things, if my mom won money from the lottery, publishers clearing house or any where that they wouldn’t ask her to pay for it before she gets it. She told me to look on line at American Cash Rewards and that she will be there until 7. I said well ma’am thats in like 2 minutes. She said that I can leave a message and she will return my call. I pulled up American Cash Awards on line and found a number at the bottom of the web page that when you call it, it is for a trucking company. I spoke to the guy on the phone he stated that just today alone they have receaved close to 20 calls from people who stated they were told that the won money from American Cash rewards. This is a scam I just know it and wanted to share this with everyone and maybe someone else got the same kinda call. This lady sounded like she was from India also. wow sounds alittle fishy if you ask me.

I too almost fell victim to these same people. He claimed that he was from American Cash Awards. Supposedly I had benn selected (from the last four digits on crdit card)to a cash prize of 2.5 mil. He too sounded Indian and wanted 200 dollars to insure prize for ” a few hours” for themm to fly out of Vegas immediately with said prize. I told him i dont have the money for that.

Hi I was called 4 times this weekend saying I have won 1.5 million and a mercedes benz. rock on, so I asked the guy who sounded Jamican. from American Cash rewards from Nevada Vegas what the catch was. I asked him to send details through my email. well ofcourse theres an attachement on it. DONT OPEN IT. he phoned again asked me to open attachement to get the file number. DONT DO IT. never opened it, told him if I have won that amount of money then you would be delivering it to my door. very persistant guy. so again told him to send me details in the mail. he said but it would take too long. said to him not really bothered as it doesnt make any difference in time. this is a big scam. put the phone down. I didnt give him any info on myself, my address or anything.
Awwwwhhhhh. man I fell for this. and lost $1500 dollars and they sounded so convincing . f***. I would kill you if I ever see you. the guy say his name was mr. Washington. here my story. .a man name mr. Washington. called saying ma dad won $2.5million. a mercede benz. I’m only 17 and I fell for it. they told me to goto cvs and buy a greendot moneypak reloadable card. and told me to put $500and $300 . then after tht they told me to pay for the wirless transfer. and have to pay $895. More money. then after that. a lady tht say she wrk with mr.washinston called and wanted the code and I told I already gave it to mr.washinston. but she told me tht they just wwanted to check again. I gave her the code. and then the next day mr.washington called and said they was an error on the code. I gave him. and told me to buy another card with $1000 in it. then I was like f**** no .
These people who are calling me has taken me for a ride i think . they say they are you. so far they have taken 2, 100 from me saying i have won 2.5 million dollars and a new car. is this true . they are asking for another 2500 dollars . i need help . they are harrassing me on the phone.
Talked to a Robert and a Mike. After I made Robert so mad he told me he was a hitman and was going to kill me. Called me a Mother F and a SOB. Then Mike (the manager) said he was sorry and fired Robert. I have been blowing their phone up the last 4 hours. And will not stop.
Total SCAM . gave me a tel # of 206-414-4787. DONT FALL FOR THIS ONE. Iwas told they had a check for me in the amount of $250 million, just had to go to walgreens and get a green check card in the amount of $350.00, SUCH A SCAM. BEWARE .
***DON’T FALL FOR THIS SCAM***.
I got a call that I won $2.5 million and a Mercedes to boot! Jamaica accented fella named Tom Richmond from American Tax Rewards in Las Vegas, and all I have to do is pay them $385.00!
WATCH OUT FOR THESE GUYS; they called from 876-862-7554 which shows as a Jamaican number; so much for being in Vegas.
i was told to call a Mr Daisy at 717-881-3039 that i had won 2.5 million what a scam these ###s need to be stoped we are AMERICA DAM IT and we work hard for our money
I have been dealing with these phone calls all year long. They are so aggressive. They call all day long with this noise in the background. When I asked him where he was located because the noise was getting on my nerves he claimed in was in route to my home. Every time I asked him to give me a location he would say, “I’m 21 miles away”. Okay, 21 miles could be in any 3 cities near me. He could never tell me. However, he could tell me where to get a green dot money card from. I told him I could not get the card but I had the money so if he just came to the house with the reward that I could just give them the money in hand then. No, he didn’t want the cash in hand he wanted the green dot card so he could get my money and disappear. I am living on a fixed income. I have no money to give away. I’m sorry but if the money is there it’s my lost. I refuse to send someone my money when I am in need. I wish the government would put a stop to this. I am too sick to deal with this. They can just lose my number. They gave me an address to send a check to but no number. Funny how that goes. They tell me that they need the money now so they can give me my reward. If they are going to take me to the bank to ensure that it is deposited then I should be able to deposit the check and then withdraw the $130 that they are asking for? He says that will not work that they need the money first. Sorry but if they don’t think people see right through them then they are crazy. They should lose my number.
I was just called by American Cash Awards and told I had been picked as a monthly winner to receive $576, 000. Wells Fargo Bank in New York supposedly sent me a check and UPS was suppose to deliver it this afternoon. All I needed to do was go to Walgreens and get a tax registration card which they said is a green dot money pack paper scratch off for $199.32. Then call back the number, which was 876-480-1341. I was to tell them a package number they gave me and it would be delivered to my door. Interesting.
Just got a call from American Cash Awards. 901-842-1118 Yeah $1.5 Million to be delivered by UPS tomorrow. Manager got on phone and stated I’d have to cover the “UPS Fee” and hung up when I showed disbelief and asked why he was wasting my, his and the other guy’s time.
They are starting to get very clever. Got a text to my phone from a +1 (415) 583-1170 number. Cali area code saying :
