Worldwide Cash Registry

Worldwide Cash Registry

red dice rollingWorldwide Cash Registry uses old world stationery with a touch of modern day security to try and convince people to part with $30, to be in the running for more than $2 million.

WCR say the recipient of the letter appears to have unobstructed and guaranteed entry rights to more than $2 million, according to their Division of Unawarded Prizes.

As is typical of most scams, Worldwide Cash Registry urge you to act immediately and sound so confident of your win they enclose a press release and claim form so they can use your photograph and personal details for promotional purposes once you claim your millions.

The envelope used by these Las Vegas based scammers has a hint of officialdom, with an internal security label and a bold “certified” stamp across it.

WCR has a Las Vegas postmark but return addresses are in Canada, including a Fort Langley PO Box.

On closer inspection, the claim form contradicts the discreet fine print on the back of the publicity release form..

While the claim form confirms and guarantees total cash and prizes in excess of $2,162,469 the fine print tells a different story – it reveals Worldwide Cash registry is neither a sponsor or administrator of any sweepstakes.

WCR, it seems, provides consumers with a monthly sweepstakes newsletter, full of entry rules and regulations, deadlines and claim information for sweepstakes.

Not something you would normally pay $30 for!

WCR asks for $30 cash, cheque or postal order.

Beware – if you confirm your postal address, you may be targeted again in the future by the same scammers under a different guise or worse still, there is a possibility your details may be put on a mailing list and sold to other scammers.

WCR have several scams on the go at the same time, using the same name with a different postal address or the same postal address but different a scam.
