They are sending their sweepstakes info, in the same type of envelope and printing as Publishers Clearing House Sweeps. Leading one to think it is PCH and you need to send them 11.89 calling it an Award Notification Commission. Another scam. When I called the phone number, they told me it was for some misc merchandise, could not tell me what kind of merchandise. It is not the amount of money, it is the principle, they are receiving the 11.89 from hundreds or thousands of people. It works out to a lot of money for them and the joy of knowing they screwed a lot of innocent people. I don't know about the other people, but I am sick and tired of getting screwed. but these thieves. My suggestions is to send back any and all sweepstakes offers, and let them eat the postage..

I knew this was a scam as soon as I opened it. There is no company name and they provide a PO Box as their address which is first red flag. Second, it says I am the winner of $3, 000, 000.00 but I must pay an acquisition fee of $11.89 or $14.89 for rush processing. I thought if I really won this money, why would I have to pay a fee of any kind. I then searched the Internet and sure enough they are a rip off company. I contacted the BBB to report them and I sent back the so called official document with SCAM written all over it and I told them if I won then they can deduct the $11.89 from my winnings, LOL. I then wrote on the envelope SCAM and that I had won $3, 000, 000.00 therefore they should pay the return postage LOL. I'm tired of these scams and they need to be stopped.
Don't fall for something that you know is "too good to be true".

The 11.89 is now 12.99 or 15.99 for rush delivery. It also states that your chances of winning are 1 in 300 million. Numbers are chosen by a pre-selected computer number. And it is possible that there will not even be a first place winner if the computer doesn't choose an active number.
People need to read all of the "fine print". Even though it screams SCAM as soon as you look at the "document.".

I received one of these letters two months ago (2015), from next gen "notifying" me that I had won 2 million dollars. The catch: a Mandatory FEE of 11.89 to collect my "winnings." If I wanted rush processing, it would cost another 3 dollars for a total of $14.89! What a ripoff! There have been hundreds of complaints about the scams this company continues to run. Why is it still allowed to do so? This "sweepstakes is a scam on so many levels. Not just the Mandatory FEE, but at one point in the letter it states that no purchase is necessary and will not increase a person's chance of winning. If that's true, why is there a Mandatory FEE to collect the money? Pressure must be applied on the LEGAL SYSTEM to shut down this scam permanently. Now. Right now. SOCIAL MEDIA can do the trick. Anyone paying attention? Post on Facebook, twitter, and all other SOCIAL MEDIA. Lets get busy. You could be the next victim or someone in your family or someone that you love...

My mom received a letter from this place saying that she had won millions all she needed to do was send 11.89. I tried telling her it was a scam but she would not listen.She said they even called her on the phone and said she was in the top 10 to win millions and for her not to pass up this opportunity.Well to make a long story short she wrote them a check and sent it for 11.89. I didn't realize she had sent it until I looked at her bank statement and sure enough the stamp on the back of the check was not Publisher's clearing House it was The next generation inc. I think it's pretty sad that these people prey on the elderly.They will not get anymore money from us.I don't understand why these people can't be shut down permanently!!

The problem is that I never entered it. I have entered only Publisher's Clearinghouse...and I checked with PCH via the correct reporting routes. PCH says that NextGen, Inc is NOT one of their sponsors or companies. DO NOT respond to NextGen, Inc.

Supposed ID Number - #86042960-484098/294543622

I repeat, I DID NOT enter this sweepstakes and the company I did enter one or more sweepstakes in is PUBLISHER'S CLEARINGHOUSE. They have no idea who these people are but NextGen is not affiliated with PCH.

It took a great deal of reading over and over but I finally found the loophole they have> IF is the big word. you have the winning number and pay 12.99 you get a list of winners of which you are surely NOT on! My name is "TUCKER" not "SUCKER" I may have been born during the day, but NOT YESTERDAY!!
