  • On May 14, 2007 the Better Business Bureau was notified of the circulation of what are believed to be fraudulent checks being sent to consumers and bearing The Bradford Exchange name. The checks in question are included with a "prize notification" letter, and allege that the consumer receiving the correspondence is a winner of a large sum of money. The BBB would like to advise consumers that this type of offer is not legitimate and is a new version of the Check Scam, where a consumer receives a check, is instructed to deposit it, and then requested to forward fees for "taxes" or "processing fees". There are in fact no funds behind the check, and the consumer subsequently forwards his or her own money to the outfit requesting it.

    The Bradford Exchange is not affiliated with the correspondence or its sender in any way. The entity who is issuing these letters and checks is misrepresenting and misusing the company's name, address, and identity.

    Consumers are encouraged to send the fraudulent solicitation letters to their local Postal Inspection Service Branch. To find the location nearest you, please go to http://www.usps.com/ncsc/locators/find-is.html and type in your city and state or zip code. After doing so, you will be given the appropriate location and phone number that you can contact.
