Cash Acquisition Resources

Cash Acquisition Resources

Australian money spinning down the drainScammers love to threaten that you will miss out on money if you don’t respond immediately.

Cash Acquisition Resources (CAR) is a perfect example.

The CAR letter states that you have seven days to claim documents which deal with gaining access to $1,134,381 in “winnable funds” or “the full sign-off particulars will be sent to the next verified prior winner on the list”.

“This is the final notice you will receive: All winning documents are 100% secure and verified and are endorsed to send to official claimant,” the letter states. Just send $30 to receive your “monetary compendium package”.

CAR states it is a division of FDF Inc, the same company behind Act of God Awards.

At least this time FDF went to a bigger effort with their letter which is decorated with beautiful calligraphy, a fake crest, watermark and seal.

But WA ScamNet wishes that CAR would drive off into the sunset and leave Western Australian consumers alone.

CAR is one of the infamous Fort Langley Mob. Same scam, same disclosure information, and same three Fort Langley PO Box numbers.

All you will get for your $30 is a list of web-based sweepstakes and prize giveaway competitions, whose total prize pool amounts to more than $1.1 million.

You’ll probably find you are ineligible to enter some competitions. Some prize giveaways are run by legitimate retailers wanting to promote their business. Other competitions are conducted by direct marketing companies to get your personal information for mailing lists. Always ask yourself whether the prize is worth you being on yet another mailing list!

A WA consumer, who sent off their money to Carter Hammond and Pierce, received a cheap photocopied booklet listing web-based sweepstake and prize giveaways. The consumer was ineligible to enter the sweepstake offering $1 million but could be in the running to win a bottle of intestinal cleanser! Second prize was $5 off a bottle of intestinal cleanser!
