It would seem that I am the first one to receive this bogus letter in 2011. Anyway, same here. I don't have to elaborate. Same modus operandi. I wish I could have a way of having these people punished for what they are doing. I will keep the letter and find out how to retaliate. This is ridiculous!!!

Every time these people mail another fraudulent piece of nonsense using the U.S. postal system, they elevate their already very serious crime to separate, costly, federal offenses punishable by hefty fines and several years in prison. Personally, I reported them to the Federal Trade Comission (my best friend in these situations). Don't mail ANYONE money in order to RECEIVE money. That's just ridiculous.

I received the same thing from TWO of these bogus documents. One was from (PRIA) Prize Research Intelligence Agency titled Memo No: 7362047085 Payment Pending Memorandum. This is the one w/the fake check. Then the OTHER official letter came from the (DRD) DATA RELEASE DIVISION announcement of IDENTITY I>D> 2287918789. they were a a few cents cheaper than PRIA. PRIA asked for $20, DRD oly wanted $19.99. What a SAVINGS. I do not believe there is much that can be done because of either the fine print on the document or the clearly but light print info on the back all these documents say they aren't affiliated, don't have anything to do w/awards or money given. PRIA's check reads "...PRIA has identified $xyz in non-disbursed funds ...pending payment, but still remaining unclaimed"; PRIA...informs...your name has been cleared as an eligible recipient for these funds." and "Final payment is dependent on...completion of claim requirements and...". Which is what all the original sweepstakes companies say in their direct mailings so who needs PRIA & DRD? Send complaints to:
Federal Trade Commission Bill McCollum Fraud Hotline

Instead of $20 everyone should spend $1.32 for 3 stamps and return these bogus documents giving these CROOKS the what for!

I work in a Nursing home and one of our Residents brought this letter to me. She was all ready to send this company $20 to get her 2 million. I informed her that these letters are usually scams and I pulled this site up for her to see all these testimonals! Thank God for this site and all of you that have posted. She was heart broken but thankful too!

I received one today decided to look it up and found allot of these complaints. Obviously this scam system has been going on for several years. Since legally you can do nothing and it seems there is no agency out there trying to do anything about it, I'm half tempted to go into my back yard and smear this little piece of paper in my dogs doo doo put it in the envelope and send it back!!! Seems to me it would be a fair trade a little crap for crap!!!

First giving honor to God who is ahead of my life, i will like to express my thanks as well . I have an testimony within myself, and this just proves how much closer we all need to keep God first and he will do all the rest for us, all we have to do is Pray the devil away AMEN!! The more believers there is, the more power for us taking a stand, because we all fall but we get back up again. So we need to take it to the lord in pray. Because these sinful letters are heartbreaking to an lady like me to receive an letter in my financial struggles, especially during this time of season, with two kids trying to get christmas for them and pay my bills, so this is so heartless for theses CROOK'S to do this. Let no weapon formed against us shall prosper In The Almighty Name of Jesus AMEN!!!

12/2011 - for 2, 536, 092 from Prize Research Intelligency Agency, ID 7393004327 Connecticut... Notice no where in the "Express Notice" letter does it state "you won" but that "prize funds is now due". and the the Director of Winner Notification only illegibly signed and no where can you find the name printed. And read the fine print. On the back of my letter it states that if you send a check to pay the $20 "transfer fee", "you authorize [them to] either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account, or to process the payment as a check transaction. When [they] use information from your check to make an electronic fund transfer, funds may be withdrawn form your account the same day [they] receive your payment... in the unlikely event that you check is returned unpaid, a state-allowable handling fee may be electrically debited from your account"
The best part is... this started with a telemarketer type phone call informing me that participating in the phone call, I will be entered into this prize "lottery". The phone call consisted of "credit card offers" and magazine subscriptions, which I denied all.
So I'm sending their "postage paid" envelope with "The Internet is Powerful... Go F*** Your Selves" written across their letter back to them.

I too got an official looking letter with the same amount of $2, 536, 092.23. I researched as I was attempted to send the $20 and just as I thought a scam. First of all their return address is a P.O. Box address. I had always heard if you have to pay to win then you really did not win anything. But; the elderly and disabled living on fixed incomes are wanting to win it big someday and these people are getting rich off of our benefits! Shameful and they need to be prosecuted.

I began receiving these "Prize Winning Notifications" after I reluctantly entered the PCH Sweepstakes. Even through my skepticism I actually sent the $20 the first two times and now the letters are coming more often and close together when not ALL together. I noticed that ALL the letters but one had the same return address and they all were for 2+million dollars and because more came after my initial fee I decided to look the address up. Like each of you I discovered that it is a scam. I am poor, unemployed and needless to say almost desperate. I can't afford to lose $1, let alone $20. This is a terrible scam that preys on the hopes and dreams of the less fortunate. There should be something we could do. After all, the P.O. Box has to be rented to an individual who must have presented a valid I.D. or something right? If anyone knows what we can and should do about this please share. Thanks!
