    COULD THE CHECK BE REAL??????????????

    I'M 99 % SURE THIS IS A SCAM, BUT HAS ANYONE RECEIVED A CHECK FROM ADVANTAGE ACOUSTIC ????? THE LETTER IS FROM INTERNATIONAL PROMOTIONS PRIZE AWARDS . THEY SAY THE DRAWING WAS HELD IN LAS VEGAS. I NEED TO CALL TO CONFIRM I RECEIVED THE LETTER AND CHECK BEFORE CASHING THE CHECK. HOW CAN SCAMS GET AWAY WITH SENDING OUT CHECKS THAT LOOK SO REAL??????? :smt017 :smt017

    : COULD THE CHECK BE REAL??????????????

    I would be VERY skeptical. I couldn't find anything on Advantage Acoutics, but everything involving International Promotion Prize Award comes up as SCAM.
    If you don't find it here and you only enter here then that should pretty much tell you.

    I agree, I would be very skeptical. Be very careful! I keep reading that they make the checks seem so real. Then when you call they want you to give your account info. to "verify" the win, and they clean out your account.

    I believe this is a scam. What bank is the check drawn on? If it is outside the US, it is a scam for sure.
