D.R.D Awards Payments Data Release

I received this letter stating that I won $1, 400, 000.00 from a sweepstakes but if you read on it does not tell me what contest and how I will receive the check. I am to enclose $19.99 payable to D.R.D Main Office- Payment Director. Receipt of Payment enacts Delivery.
With all the errors of capitalization, one semi-comma, no return telephone number, spelling or the number of the division in full made my wonder. So I just typed in the address and get came up on this site claiming this letter as a scam.
Why should I have to pay for transfer of my new funds? Again, where is the phone number to contact anyone in the office or the email address. I may be stupid but I am not crazy. Watch out for this kind of mail since the lottery and everything gets out of hand.

I too just recieved this letter. It does very much so look and sound legit, but I talked to the BBB better business bureau, and they said it IS a scam. Anytime you have to pay and amount of money to recieve money, is a scam. Iam so glad I checked into this before I made a big mistake.

I got a letter in the mail after i already signed one to receive 5, 000. I was told i, was selected at 10:17 am Pst. They said" this letter constitutes actual designation as me being the owner of 1.5 mil". That all monies are legally bound to be paid out based on laws governing the allocation of sweepstakes and no entry fees are requires. It's confirmed that i am the intended receiver. They are ready to issue me the entire 1.5 mil. Then i see send a process fee by check, cash, money order to prize data. I was hype for a couple of hours.Then i looked it up and found this cite, hundreds of ppl had been taken for $20, fake checks and so on.I showed their them forget lawyers and the aggravations. I sent that junk back with a $10 Monopoly money and a ounce of baking power. They wanna be diabolical!!!.
