Question DetailsAsked on 6/21/2013

Is the company Media Opportunities Direct, Inc. from the Netherlands a scam?

The company claims that I have won $1.6 million and is requesting a processing fee of $26 to receive the lump sum payment. Should I throw this mail is the trash and report them to the FBI for investigation?

Hello, this is Kiel from Angie's List. We do not currently have any information on this company, although what you described does sound like a scam. I would advise being cautious about providing money to a company that you don't know about and haven't heard of before. Thanks so much!

I recieved a letter in the mail as of today from media opportunities and they said if i send a 25 dollar check or money order or lol cash, that i should get my big check from them of 1,396,443.21. yes it is a scam, the reason i know it is, cuz they sent this to me before when i have lived at another residence, and there shouldnt be a check box for cash, noone wants cash sent through da mail, so dats how u know it is a scam as well. and the signatures dont match, and yes they are reported as i have googled their name. sorry you sent your money, you need to get in touch with bbb to get your money back and file a claim.
