As a wife of US Amy men we PCS every 3-5 yrs traveling the world, I was sent a letter from American Sweepstakes Publishers to my old address stating I won $254, 204.00 I had no way of knowing I won this prize due to traveling with husband in the service, with that being said, can I still claim my winnings today? The letter states the check that belongs to me has already been mailed out in 2003, but I have never received a check! Can you please look to see if after year of a unclaimed check is it possible to receive this check that I won? Thank you for your help

American Sweepstakes Publishers (A.S.P.) award confirmation - office sweepstakes recipient - publishers give away awards recipient.

I need the complaint reached the Board Direction of Awards Reci[pient I believe for so longest time have been Discriminating against me by not giving the awards that was supposed relief my financial hardship. They have taking my money for so longest time and when it com to receive the awards either a thief took the funds or the reward never reach to my destination this is the key complaint to stop compromised my financial life.
With the present request I need to have funds to relief all damage done for so longest time in my life.
I know that can be granted - I was about to go and contact a banker to take funds from the trust funds of the institution to relief my hardship but I rather make the complaint first and later I will just go to the trust funds of the institution - and help myself
I am a member of the Administration I was not supposed to succumb under the such abuse National Republican Congressional Committee should never have to go through the kind of abuse. That compromise should be relief from the group abuser.

American Sweepstakes Publishers (A.S.P.) Reported winnings not true

I too received a letter stating "Statement of Tracked Documentation" stating they had over a million in unclaimed cash awards and I was "identified, confirmed and notified" that I am "guaranteed full access to 1, 000, 000.00 but I must first send in a $12.00 processing fee, this was to be by check, cash and or money order, upon checking I see that this is a scam and there are too many others as well, so sad! How does the Media, (TV) allow them to advertise and then to falsify winners. I was thinking someone wins why can't it be me, and then I find I have been scammed! Never again!

Any sweepstakes companies that want money for any reason are scammers. I included my telephone number to American Sweepstakes Publishers and not I get 6-8 calls PER DAY telling me how many millions I have won; all want anywhere from $299 to $9450 to have the prize delivered.
Don't be fooled! If it's too good to be true, it's definitely a fraud! Marisa B., Roseville, CA

American Sweepstakes Publishers (A.S.P.) winning prizes and them asking me to send money

If you get one of these do not send money! I have been getting these for a few weeks now and it is always from a different place. I was just about to send the $12 dollars until I read the piece of paper that came with it. I would have really used this money I wish I new for sure but no like they say "To Good To Be True", It is so don't do it keep what little money you have and spend it on yourself. F$%# Them it is a get rich scam for them, making money off the poor because we want something great like winning alot of money would do the job. DON'T SEND MONEY SCAM REMEMBER THAT!

I live in canada and as you i have been scamed by emty promises of large sums of needed money by this mr. Or mrs. Wastington and many many others. After several disapointments i just began to burn all the garbage mail i had been reciving that was stogging my mail box . Someone told me if they are requesting money for handling or mailing costs there was a problem of some sort, then i started running there names or headings on the net only to find out they were all leaches under the same umbrella. Beware of any of thoes requesting money or acc. Numbers of any kind. Hope this helps to scwoss some of thoes blood suckling lowlife.

I have read the article shown above and now agree. I have been contacted by letter from American Sweepstates in Rochester, NY and my prize was $5.5 million. I have
tried to find out as much as I could about the validity and when they said they would
fly to Az. to pick up my check to pay $10, 000 toward my taxes, I rally got nervous.
I have invested part of my IRA in silver & gold and only have $10, 000 left in an IRA
I could borrow against. We only have a State Revenue Dept. here that I know of
so I became suspicious and have gone on line which I seldom ever do. I found many
others who have shared their stories of grief with A.S. Is there such a thing as a legitimate American Sweepstates? I have spoken with Robert Carson and Linda Smith
#31360 at Ph>#[protected] and Robert should answer. Tell him you are my attorney,
Mr. Kerk Apperson and you are checking them out. This is acrtually my son and he lives
in Omaha, Ne. He owns his own business. and he or his wife will answer as QW Express.

I would dearly love to have this all be true and could actually win some money. If you
have knowledge of this company in Rochester, N.Y, please, please call me at once
and advise me what to do. They are reportedly located at 300 State St., Rochester,
N.y..14614. I was a full time financial representative for Waddell & Reed there in Shawnee Mission for over 33.5 yrs. I am now retired. n Robert is awaiting my call
to him this afternoon. Please try to find out any/all information for me at once.

Thanks much.

American Sweepstakes Publishers (A.S.P.) Scammers

American Sweepstakes Publisher sent me a 'Guaranteed Delivery Response Form'. I won $100, 254, 204.00. They tell me that in order for me to receive my winnings I have to return the documentation signed and to send a one time $12.00 fee for processing registration payable to American Sweepstakes Publishers. After I got taken by John Beck, I do my research. I talked to the FTC and they told me that you will never have to pay a penny to collect your winnings from any sweepstakes or lottery. They said if your asked for a payment it's not real. What's that old saying, 'If it sounds to good to be true, then it's not true'. Thank You for this and other web sites and for people who try to help others by sharing their stories.

I have American Publisher Sweepstakes wanting me to send first they asked for $17, 550.00 because I had won 2.5 million and a new 2015 car. When I told them I was not working Dave Jefferson called me back and asked if I could come up with $ 950.00 from my bank. When I could not get that amount he said he would put in $400.00 of his money if I could come up with $550.00 and send it Western Union. I would have my 2.5million and 2015 car within 48hours. This has been going on now for over 3weeks. I keep telling him I am not working and the bank will not lend me any money. Big time SCAM. He said the main company was Mega Million that backs American Publisher Sweepstakes. NOT going for it. I have been Ripped off before he said their are still good people and not all are scams.

My mail box is being flooded with material from American Sweepstakes Publishers, and they had me sending in small amounts of $10, or $11 in checks, and I was falling for the possibility of winning large sums of money, and was thinking that maybe this was legitimate.. We are living in times now, where people need money, and too many are getting taken advantage of by scams. I have some one calling me, with a foreign accent, telling me that they have a cash prize to deliver to my door, with the UPS, and gave me a check number, a serial number, and a routing number to track this with. The person calling me, has a private number that shows up on my caller ID, and I told them to call me on my mobile phone, so that I could check that out. He said he is going to call me tomorrow morning, and I am going to ask him the name of the company he is working with, and get his phone number, and investigate this, and am going to check him out to see if he is really, or a scam. I will not sign for anything alone, nor will I ever give my bank card, or Social Security number to ANY ONE!
I am on disability, and a fixed income, and can't afford this. I feel as though people in this situation are the ones that are getting hit the hardest, and are the ones that really need money and support, and these scam artists see that, and the disabled and vulnerable fall right into their clutches! This has got to STOP NOW!
