    This kind of fraud is just dispickable., Sending these things out just before Christmas with the sole intention of ripping people off. It would be nice if these culprits spent the holiday's in jail...Oh Well ...in a perfect world!

    Just received their "Notification" letter and suspected a scam, so went online and found this "forum". Hope people are not fooled by their fraud. Isn't thee anything we can do to prevent these people from ripping off more unsuspecting persons?

    I too recieved a letter in November 2oo8 stating that I am a winner!!! But when I called they wanted money for magazines but I declined to give any financial info. SCAM all the way...by the way I still have my letter with the award # and personal numerical security ID reference #. They want $11.89 for securing this premium offer. Yeah Right!!!

    I just recieved a letter Saying that i won $2, 00, 000.00, and to send them $11.89 to recieve the check for 2 million dollars. After researching this company, i found out that is a scam. I was very dissappointed that it was a scam. I am a single mother struggling to put food on my table for my 2 children. I was very excited when Irecieved the letter saying that I won 2 million dollars because that would help me so much. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!! JENNIFER

    Hi. I've just received a letter from ANC and thanks GOD I checked it out before sending what they were asking for, because I was about sending my credit card information. These people should be in prison. IN GOD WE TRUST.

    Eh, anything "official" that says you can send cash is a scam. Then, the stamp box says "Affix INTERNATIONAL Air Mail Postage" when it's going to Kansas. I wish it was a prepaid envelope, I would have sent them a brick and a picture of $11.89 just for kicks.

    Hello, They called me two month ago. They said, you have won $2, 000, 000 and want me to order some magazines . I told them I don't have time to read it. I worked too many hours. They keep push it. I said NO NO NO!!!.So I got letters from them I sent the $11.89 to ANC last month. Then they sent another letters last week again!!! It was same as before. Ok !!! I did it again pay another $11.89. Maybe I get better change to win. So then I did get another third letters came in today. This is little diffterent the other letters they sent me . First was $2, 000, 000 last letter. It came in today was $500, 000.00. I say what????? Now I am confuse. I checked it online, I belivie IT IS SCAM!!! cause they keep sent it more and more !!! Oh well I lost little money. Its could be worst.

    ###in Amerika was built on scams poverty slaves and greedy corperations. THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT GIVE A DAMN about its people. The people that get over on others are lazy ### wit no ambition in their pathetic world. Internet is the number one source for people to become exposed, do your research first and never look for any hand outs. WORK HARD PLAY HARD. Whenever times are rough remember the less fortunate ones, and your not gonna live forever!!!

    I too received a letter from the bogus, scamming Award Notification Commission. Right away I was suspicious. First off I had entered no contest, second why should I send money ($11.98) to receive money, and then the letter asked for credit card info. ARE THEY CRAZY! NEVER EVER GIVE OUT THIS INFO TO PERSONS UNKNOWN!!! However, on the other hand there should be a law against this type of scam operation. In the meantime people research any and everything that comes in your mail claiming you've won any type of prize. THIS IS NOT THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

    I messed up and wound up sending theme close to $45.00. Each letter they sent was alittle differant than the one before so I figured it was a processing fee. I would now like to see these guys in person and take my money out of there [censor]! We should all get together and file a Class action lawsuit in the amount of 2 million dollars. I figured with all the people they scammed we can each get our $11.99 back, and bankrupt them in the process.

    Everybody:
    Just keep in mind that any kind of payment or purchase that is required to get this prize or gift is against the law. As soon as I saw the reqired "FEE" I looked up this sight.
    Why am I not surprised but very pleased by how so many of you outstanding citizens are taking time to log this scam into this sight.
    Thank you all very much for reporting this rip off. Your are doing a great service to stop these thieves.
    Keep an eye out for this and other scammers changing their company's name

    I also recieved a letter saying I am about to win $1.000, 000.00. Just sent $11.98 and $3.00 special delivery
    postage and now I recieved another letter they wanting to know if my address is correct with my county and state address was correct, well then I new something was fishy. Even said to sent cash, check, money order
    or credit card information.
    I am retired and trying to raise a thirteen year old child. Yes, alot of money would look good in your bank but just to steal you blind. Your day will come some day when Jesus comes. And let him be the judge of that. Why our goverment has't done anything, I will never know. I pray someday that someone will clean this world up.

    Okay people check this out. I just got the same thing in the mail on Monday stating I am the winner of $2, 000, 000.00/ At first I thought okay this isn't real. I started laughing and threw the paper on the floor. Especially after it was talking about sending them money. BUT!!! Later the same night I got the paper again and carefully took the time to READ EVERY WORD ON IT. If you got this paper and read it right you will see that it does NOT require you to send in any money. The problem with us people is that we don't take the time to observe things in full detail. the $11.89 0r $15.00-whatever- is for a $2, 500.00 gift certificate that you use at an online store WOARewards.com/ The letter even tells you that NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY. PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE CHANCE OF WINNING. There is also a deadline that you have to meet. So many of us are so confused when we get the letter that we spend more time online trying to find out if its a scam or not that we lose out on the opportunity. I personally have already mailed back the "JUDGING SHEET" and have sent NO MONEY. Because they themselves notified me that "NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY". I found out that this company IS in fact legit>> Its just US people who have to learn to READ EVERY WORD. I suggest that the next time you get a mail like this that you do not hesitate to return the attached sheet IMMEDIATELY!!! NO MONEY NECESSARY

    Hey, crazy like a Fox you pinned the tail on the donkey! And your reward is knowing that every part of your comment is true. The only time anyone ever receives something for nothing is when someone dies and they inherit it. So if that's how you expect to make it rich start sucking up, cause the only other way is to work for it.

    Yeah, I've been receiving these letters several times from ANC as well; I think I just sent the 11.89 in a money order one time and that was it. After that they just kept sending their official-looking letters always asking for more money; I don't send them any more money because I can't afford to do that; I just sent back the letters with nothing, and was getting suspicious about this so that's why I decided to look it up to see if it was a real legitimate sweepstakes. I'm glad I looked it up because I see now that it's not and anything else I receive from them in the future will go straight to the trash! They really do need to get a life and stop picking on innocent people who are just barely making it. How can an illegitimate company like that just ask for money in order for someone to get their hopes up to receive a large amount of money? It's very stupid and senseless to mess with people like that; and on top of that the thing is that I never entered a sweepstakes to win $2, 000, 000.00 in the first place! May God have mercy on them, because they sure need it! CF

    I wouldn't think that anyone could possibly fall for this...But I guess it can still happen to ..Anyhow these people are a total disgrace...I think if everyone were to send back the envelopes minus the stamp and minus the return address with a note inside letting them know how rotten they are and as long as you drop it off in a blue box somewhere it'll go to them and land at their post office with a postage due stamp...They'll pay for the postage because they'll be under the assumption that some poor soul has tossed them another check..But instead they get to read about how disgraceful they are and pay .44 cent in postage for the pleasure...:-)
