    Has anybody heard of DTD SECURITIES INC.

    I got a letter in the mail with a check for $5,900 and it says that I won $250,000 and that I need to Western Union them a payoff in the amount of $2,990 in order to collect the 250k and it says not to cash the check until I contact them by phone. The check looks legit, it even has security features like watermarks and micro printings and colour backgrounds on the back. It gives me a 905 number to call. It says this was organized by International Gaming corp. Slide-circuit awards and globe Promotions out of London , UK. Before I call this number I wanna know if this is real or am I calling some number and it's gonna put some bogus charge on my phone bill or something.

    Bogus phone charges are the least of your worries. This scam is called advanced Nigerian 419 scam. They send you fake check and once you send them money back, you are out of money. Your bank will get confirmation in a month that check was fake and will go after you. You will owe bank $5,900, they will freeze your accounts and report you to FBI and credit agencies.

    So do not call them, report check to cops or bank manager and destroy any similar letter that will come next time(you are on the list of suckers).
