Tower Hill Insurance Group was informed about scams that include business checks personalized with the name “Tower Hill Select Insurance Company.”
Tower Hill is working diligently with national law enforcement to help solve these crimes. We have included common characteristics of one of the scams below for your reference; however, the scenario used in each instance may be different. Please be aware of these scams so that you can avoid becoming one of its next victims.
One scam involves receiving a letter from the “Reader’s Digest Sweepstakes Award,” announcing that the recipient has won a substantial amount of money. Included with the letter is a Wachovia Bank check, supposedly to cover the cost of fees associated with receiving the sweepstakes funds. The check is personalized with “Tower Hill Insurance” in the upper left-hand corner, and “Tower Hill Select Insurance Company” immediately below it.
In the scam letter, recipients are instructed to contact an individual at 1-778-714-0498 to arrange a method of transfer for the winnings.
In the event that you receive a scam letter and check, we urge you to report it to local law enforcement officials immediately. If you are a Tower Hill customer and have questions about the authenticity of a check that you receive from the Tower Hill family of companies, please contact our Customer Service Center at (800) 342-3407 for assistance.
