P.A.I.D

A pile of blue spiral bound notebooksCash Payout Imminent. Claim Approved. Fully Certified and Authorised. Notice of Payout. $1,523,418.

Platinum Awards Investigative Division or P.A.I.D use these buzz words to grab your attention.

The P.A.I.D letter goes on to state that for $30 you will receive “the standard commodity entitlement option with a payout report compendium worth $1,523,418.00 when fully redeemed”.

A report compendium? Read the letter’s fine print and you’ll discover that the report is a list of  sweepstakes and prize giveaways you can enter.

The fine print states that P.A.I.D “examines, acquires and makes available full entry directives for known cash and prizes equalling or exceeding the stated amounts” and the “directives are placed in report format in our compendium for our Worldwide eligible patrons who desire to participate”.

P.A.I.D is one of Canada’s Fort Langley Fanciful Mob.

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!

This is the same offer made by 17 other scams operating out of three PO Boxes in Fort Langley, BC, Canada.

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!
