A mail order scam group recently used the Metromix name and is contacting people telling them they've won a rewards program prize and will be given a check for thousands of dollars. This is a SCAM.
The scammers then send their "winner" a counterfeit check from Coppermark Bank, directing them to cash it and to pay taxes on the money they've won. Next, they ask their "winner" to send them money via Western Union to pay the tax bill. In reality, the check the scammers send for deposit is returned a week later as a fake check and the deposit is reversed. By this time their "winner" has already sent the scammers the tax payment and have lost their money.
Should you receive any similar "prize" notification with Metromix's name on it, please do not respond. The scam prize notification has been sent by numerous false entities, but in all cases do not cash the scammers' fake check, and under no circumstances should you send them any money.
The authorities have gotten involved to catch these scammers. If you receive a scam letter or have related questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
