Fraudulent Award Notice

Complaint Rating:  99 % with 90 votes
Contact information:
Award Payment Data Release Div.
P.O. Box 9000
East Meadow, New York
United States
I received a letter that begins with the following.

There is much excitement in Our Offices for YOU, YOUR IDENTIFICATION for the Award Payment Data Release has been FINALIZED and APPROVED!

THE PRIZE PAYMENT DATA RECORD READS: -YOU-are Known HOLDER of IDENTIFICATION No: 2180414514 FILED IN OUR MAIN OFFICE FOR THE AWARD PAYMENT REPORT.

This is Real and Actual based on results from your recent participation in a National Promotion in which Your subsequent Identification is now announced. We know how exciting this is, so please follow the simple directions on these Award Payment Data Release Office Documents as directed.

And so on...

Enclosed with the letter is a DOCUMENT OF AWARD PAYMENT that contains what looks like a check in the amount $1, 400, 000.00. This document had check marks next to the following paragraphs:

___I, Amy Sweikar state that I am the Identified Person Named here for the $1, 400, 000.00 Dollars in Sweepstakes and Contest Monies/Prize as Data Release has now CONFIRMED. The Award Payment Data Release office states that I am 100% fully identified. The entrant directives for the Full~$Amount are On Record and are Issued to Me and I am only required to complete, sign and enclose the Award Payment Data release fee of just the $19.99 which I am enclosing as follows...

___I have enclosed my fee of $19.99 by __check__cash__money order payable to : "D.R.D. Main Office-Payments Director". Receipt of Payment enacts Delivery.

Had I not researched this and found that others received the same type of letter, I very well could have lost $19.99 in hopes of receiving this large sum of money.

It is funny that the letter has the address and no one have done anything. P.O. Box 9004 Westbury, NY 11590-9004 I think it is time for authorities to do something. Money situation is hard for everyone and even $19.99 dollars is money and we do not want to lose it. My ID 2278567009 I got the letter today. 06/14/2011
