Dear "jid,"
This is a SCAM to get $26 from you. They really are not going to send you $16,775.190.00!!! You won't even get a dime back from these sleazy crooks. Do not give them any cash or even a money order! And particulary DO NOT give them your credit card or banking information!

PLEASE: Immediately report them to your state or county or (best) federal consumer affairs office. The legal authorities will take care of tracking them down and hopefully sending them to jail. Mail fraud is a serious offense.

If you turn your letter over and read the consumer guidelines It will tell you how everyones a winner and how to get your winnings without purchase, I have been doing that for months and have never seen a check.. Now they also send me a list of sweepstakes to enter because,I think they think it looks better and I woluld be confussed and think it is real, I highlighted all the important information and sent it back in their envelope this time I will state I will see them in court... Also the internet should not advertise a sweepstakes info ad and free consultation to help scammers.

I have the EXACT same paper that you and apperently others have. I know for a fact that any legit sweepstakes winnings are awarded without costing you anything. Good to know that I can go to the internet and check out these scams.

I received their letter in the mail today and promptly destroyed it, along with the 4-5 other letters I've gotten in the past from these scumbags.

This is a scam! Any time you're asked to pay for some supposed winnings, that should immediately seem fishy. As others have said, don't fall for this nonsense and report these clowns.

Is this real or an scram?

Answered 6 years ago by carolynjunkin


The letter has all the right words to confuse you to thinking it is real. However, look at the warning sign.. address is the Netherlands [outside the USA]

They say it is a cash prize which they send by check directly to you from MOD processing center according to the rules and terms. On the rules it states Do Not use the envelope to claim your prize and the odds are listed with $1 having 1:1 odds. So if they have to send you the prize it is one dollar...if you used your own envelope.

They plan on your being overcome by the possible prize and rush that you will be dumb enought to just mail it with the letter. You have no protection or way to get your money back if you do it. They are laughing at those dumb Americans.
