  • Consumers allege that this company sends them a letter informing them that they have won a "USA MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT." The letter states, "Enclosed is a check of a portion of your winnings to help you pay any legal, insurance or processing fees you may encounter." When consumers call an agent listed in the letter for instructions on how to claim the jackpot and "activate" the jackpot check, the consumer is directed to send the amount of their check less the fee for a money gram to an attorney designated by the company. The attorney is to process the transaction. The consumer deposits the company's check into his or her account, and writes the attorney a check. Several days later, the company's check is returned to the consumer's bank as a bogus check. In the meantime, the consumer's check has been cashed by the "attorney." At the bottom of the jackpot letter, the company has printed the BBB logo, and the statement, "Proud member of Better Business Bureau of Southern Nevada. This company is not nor has it ever been a member of the Better Business Bureau of Southern Nevada. This company is fraudulently misrepresenting itself and has never been granted permission to use the BBB logo. On June 23, 2005, investigators for the Better Business Bureau of Southern Nevada did a site investigation of the purported address of the company. The company's address, on the jackpot letter, does not appear to exist.
  • On June 21, 2006, mail was returned to the Bureau marked 'Return to Sender' with no forwarding address.
