  • I got the same cheque (very professionally printed) and letter today. I am supposed to cash the $3750.00 cheque, then send that money to the "lottery" to cover $950.00 in processing fees and $1570.00 in non-resident taxes. They will send me $120,000.00 in 48 hours.

    The scam works because it will take a week or 2 before the fraudulent 1st cheque comes back and your bank comes after you for the money that you withdrew and sent to the fake lottery crooks.
