Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

Received a check and letter stating that I won $250,000 as one of the 2nd prize winners in a second category of the European, African and USA Consumer Sweepstake. The check is very realistic and worried that others might try to cash it.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order rep submitting for a consumer:

The victim received a letter, asking them to deposit a check. Check supposedly contained their winnings and the cover for a large processing fee.

They sent images of the letter and check. I’ve attached the letter. The scammers used business names that were close to actual businesses. The letter was from "Investec Financial Incorporated". There are legitimate companies also using the name Investec. The check was from a "Duke Engineering Corporation" and listed an address. The address matches to a "Duke Energy Corporation." But there are no records that indicate that Duke Engineering is real or any reason why they would have cut them a check.

Mrs. Julia Vander is listed as their "account rep."

In a letter from South Africa, I am informed that I have won $ 250,000.00 from the consumer sweepstakes lottery held on June 6th, 2017.

Claiming the money involves a processing fee of $ 2,510.00. However, the letter also included a check for $ 2,870.00 "to help [me] pay for the processing fee. Moreover, the letter advised me to contact the claims agent Ms. Julia Vander at 1-877-450-9929 to start the "claim processing

and to activate [my] check."

The latter is "signed" by Walter Oni, Promotions Manager, i.e. there is no handwritten signature but only the typed name and title.
