Senior Citizen Defrauded By Sweepstakes Scams Wins Big With The National Telemarketing Victim Call Center And Recovers $14,000.00
Date:6/19/2010

Roslyn Feldman, an 88-year-old woman from Brooklyn, NY, lost her life savings of $60,000 by playing fraudulent sweepstakes over a two year period. She believed she was a winner when she started receiving solicitations with phrasing like “You Have Won Money” and “You have already won, you need only to claim your check” printed in large colorful fonts, along with official looking seals of approval and facsimiles of checks she would receive. Mrs. Feldman lost her husband years earlier and wanted to prove to her son that she was financially independent, so when the sweepstakes came in the mail she thought her prayers had been answered.

(PRWEB) June 19, 2010 -- Roslyn Feldman, an 88-year-old woman from Brooklyn, NY, lost her life savings of $60,000 by playing fraudulent sweepstakes over a two year period. She believed she was a winner when she started receiving solicitations with phrasing like “You Have Won Money” and “You have already won, you need only to claim your check” printed in large colorful fonts, along with official looking seals of approval and facsimiles of checks she would receive. Mrs. Feldman lost her husband years earlier and wanted to prove to her son that she was financially independent, so when the sweepstakes came in the mail she thought her prayers had been answered.

The catch: she needed to send in a processing fee which ranged from $5 to upwards of $50 per offer. What she did not see was the fine print, often on the back of the solicitation printed in small gray print declaring the offer was not a contest, only a solicitation to purchase an easy to read compendium that lists individual sweepstakes she could enter separately. Once she sent back the first processing fee, more offers started showing up in her mailbox and most days she received thirty different sweepstakes offers.
