Today October 5, 2009 I recieved a transmittal Authorization notification stating that I had won $3, 175.563.00. But the catch after I continued to read on is that they wanted a $20.00 fee in order to obtain this money. My question is if you have won this substanial amount of money why isn't this fee taken out of those funds? It's a shame that who ever these people are they are taking money from those in hopes they have actually won this money. Times are hard, and this should be looked into so that this scam can be stopped. I'm glad that I looked on the internet and found out just how many people who had recieved this same notification from these no-good people. So if you recieve this notification think twice before you send the $20.00 fee to only get nothing in return.

I recieved a authentic document stating I had won 2 million and something odd dollars and I was estatic. I made sure I sent it back right away I was so happy and the fee for processing was 20 bucks. U dont think about that when your going to be a millionaire. In the end very stupid idea. This is completely fake and a real rip off.

Listen, I just lost my husband and I have a daughter who is 7 years old. When I rec'ved this letter I was hopeful and looked the sweepstakes company up on the BBB but they were not rated. So I typed in the name of the sweepstakes company and found this website. And my suspicions were right, this was too good to be true. Bye-Bye 2, 500, 000. This is not cool at all and unfortunetly nothing is being done or can be done? This is a hard time for everyone because of the economy and it is a shame that there are such evil people in this world that would live on the despare of others. Shame on them and I am a firm believer that what comes around will go around. God is watching them.

I just receievd my letter for IAA, July 9, 2009, and have until July 21, 2009 to send my 20 dollars back in. But for some reason, something told me to pull this compamy up on the internet. Glad I did before they got me with this scam. I have been scammed before. Now til this day I'm still paying the bank back some 4500.00. I wish people would stop getting over on other people and get out here and find a job to get the money they need. Cause judgement day is coming, and that's one of the ten-commandment. "Thou shalt not steal", and that's just what these people are out here doing!!!
