    Here is what happened to me ....
    Last week I got a letter from 'CasinoTropez " Had my name and address .
    Inside was a letter saying I had won their grand prize and a check for 2,200. from a bank in my state . It said this check was to cover fees and was from one of their sponsers. I was supposed to call a number within 5 days .
    Now I did not fall off a turnip truck yesterday .
    I looked up the bank online . It was in the same state as me . Bank was established but I didn't trust this

    I deposited to see if it would clear
    It didn't and I didn't spend any of the money .
    I did however write to Casino Tropez and tell them this and that there was a scam using their name . I was shocked they they did not even care! They didn't even reply coherently and didn't address what I was telling them at all . I still have the original letter with the phone numbers which they never mentioned either . They did say that US wasn't allowed to play at their casino .
    Uhm,
    DUH ​

    I guess if crooks can get ahold of our data to spam us and send out fake bankruptcy letters, then it isn't too hard to imagine identity theft and other chicanery.

    I'd PaB or at least alert Bryan to this thread.

    Also, maybe being paranoid and off topic, but I'm not going to dl any new casinos other than from a trusted source... what if a new casino was really a dojfux sting operation?

    Maybe someone in their organization gives very much a damn that this is happening, that's why I suggested Bryan might like to know. :)

    Yeah, I guess it was either handled internally and they didn't want to cause an alarm, or they have brainless support staff, either way you did your part...

    this problem must be getting bigger as suddenly I'm seeing lots of TV ads for You must register/login in order to see the link. That's a non-profit funded by big business and govt.

    That is terribly creepy, Silky. Totally off the wall weird.

    That means someone has your full name and address. Must have come from casino marketing dept somewhere don't ya think? Whoever it came from, wouldn't they know that US players aren't allowed to play Tropez? so why send it to a US address anyway?? And isn't it illegal to send fraudulent mail? wonder what your bank did about the bad check? Who do banks report such things to?

    Whatever the source, things are really getting weirder in online casino land.

    I have a copy of the check returned from the bank and the letter and envelope . I don't have a scanner here at home for another 3 weeks but I will try to upload from work tomorrow for anyone who wants to see .
    It shows being sent from Cananda

    The heading of the letter is
    Royal Financial Soultions
    Casino Tropez sweepstakes

    Letter was signed Jon Cox :General Manager

    Imagine the people out there that cashed and spent the money?? It looked so real and like I said the check was drawn on a bank here in Massachusetts as a treasuers check [phoney of course]. So someone did their research .
    I would also like to know how someone knew I had an old account their from years ago [ at CT]​

    what I would do in cases like this is: send them a "fake check" I mean no fund
    lose an additional 20/30 bux.......and find out who tryed to cash it...give the FBI a name an address something to work on.
    I would do it.

    Don't you scam someone to profit at their expense? Where's the profit to be made here by the scammer? Worst/best case scenario........ you cash the check and get the money, and the bank loses money. (Then you have to pay the bank back) Who would be the scammer and where do they profit in all this?? I'm lost to see a motive!

    I think it's right before "i didn't fall off a turnip truck' if she had called the number they probably would have requested id or bank details so they could deposit the balance in her account. $2200 for expenses? I'm guessing she just left a detail out :)

    well, supposely if you do fall for the scam you are going to send them(the scammers) the difference between the check amount and "the fees" you are suppose to collect.
    Lets assume they send you a check for 10k and your "expences fee" are 2k, you should send em back 8k.
    At this unfortunate moment the ORIGINAL check comes back and you owe 10 grand to the bank...........easy.:oops:
    The other scam is...you call em within the 5 days and they will take from you all the necessary information they will need to scam you without any further cooperation.,easy too
