Since June 2012, the Wisconsin BBB has received numerous inquiries from consumers across the country regarding a "Reader's Digest Sweepstakes". If you receive a check from “Reader's Digest Sweepstakes” from American Family Insurance Group, the Wisconsin BBB believes that this check is counterfeit. If you receive a letter and check from this company and you are asked to deposit the check into your personal account, withdraw money and wire it overseas, use extreme caution. It has been the experience of the BBB that these checks are usually counterfeit. If the check is counterfeit, you will owe your bank the amount that you withdrew from your account. You will not receive any winnings, and you won't be able to recover the money that you wired.
