Award Notification Commissionletter stating has won prize

M Review updated:

Its a shame that in this economic crisis most of us are in, that people can get away with leading people to believe this kind of thing. I just received same letter in mail today and googled it instantly to see if the company was reputable. 11. 89$ doesnt sound like much to claim a 2 million dollar prize but why would they ask for money is what keeps leading me towards tossing this thing in the trash. We should all start a lawsuit claiming against this ridiculousness. I keep thinking of what my omther always said "if it sounds too good to be true, then most likely it is." but then again... What if?

    Well, got my letter sometime in 2017. no date that I can find and no follow up letter. I kept it just wondering if I would get another... of course I did not. I guess they did get all of us to wonder what we would do with 2 million. that is the best I can say about it. the dream of all that money. but again it is a cruel thing to do. I did not and would not send money. the bbb says if they say send money it is a scam. if in the event that I would win I always say send me the money and I will gladly pay you, your tid bit of money. that always stops them from sending any more letters. and yes I would love to sue them for the heart ache they caused. if anyone ever starts a law suit just contact me. I will gladly send a copy of this letter... contact me at... [email protected] please someone start one.. after all we may end up being millionaires after all. help, I really would love to be rich!!!

    I got one of the letters from processing office/distribution center p.o. box 2905 kansas city, ks66110-2905 saying I won. I was scrambling money together to put a stamp then saw they wanted money from me. I was so excited thinking my prayers of how my daughter and I were going to make it in life here in ca. I have no job and this letter almost got me. I was shaking and crying with happiness.

    So mean to do.

    Itʻs september 14, 2017 and that letter is still going around!!! scamming is illegal right? yet somehow, these people are still doing it and getting away with it. the red flags came up as soon as I saw them asking for money! iʻm sure they read this complaint but continue to scam people anyway. and laughing their way to the back at the same time! shame on these scammers, to hear so many people being duped, I believe they will get whatʻs coming to them, but sadly not soon enough.

    Be careful if you call them. they are so good at scamming. they might even compliment you, and smooth-talk you;
    Be strong and tell them to turn themselves into the police. pretty clear they are not in this country, even tho they have
    A 913 area code. call the bank and cancel the check immediately, if necessary. also, I was scammed by american
    Sweepstakes network addressed in paradise (near los vegas); a real piece of work was edward e. prone, chief financial
    Officer. these guys claim to be am. vets! another was with the consumer protection agency, alfred kerbin & [email protected] [protected]. you won't believe how they can lie, and lie so well. anyway, please don't think for
    One wonderful moment that you've won anything. that's what I did, well it's only ten bucks, but they have ways to hook
    You in so deep; like, "you already have so much invested... you don't want to lose that money. you'll not get anything if
    You pull out now!" so, you pay them (one more last time). honestly, these guys are ruthless - they know exactly what
    They are doing. they don't care about you, at all. they can get mailing lists from the post office, the internet, just about
    Any company - either by hacking to get the list, or perhaps they can afford to pay for it. I was told that I was funding terrorists! what a horrible feeling to hear that! if you hook up with them, then you're looking for a long time being
    Manipulated by those bacon sucking ignorant scammers. good luck folks.

    I also received the same letter. I'm in such a financial crisis and when I read that I had won 2, 000, 000.00 cash I melted . For a moment I believed it was true. But my common sense told me it's a scam. They want money that's always a scam . Then I examined the letter closer I found misspelled words and even the paid postage stamp was not right it was a circle with nothing in the middle it should of had the date in it. So as much as I wanted to believe it is real I know it's not and yes I'm disappointed and the company should be sued for sure.

    I received the same letter from the Award Notification Commission stating I send them $12.99 and that was just an entry for the amount of $1, 325, 000.00.
    I was debating on sending them a money order and decided to Google it instead. Well what do you know it's probably another scam. So glad I googled it.

    This is definitely related to publishers clearing house* beware this is from pch or an affiliate of some sort!!!

    This is 100% factual. publishers clearing house sent me mailings, which I used to toss. last year hubby suggested we just mail the things in, who knows we may win and we dont ever have o buy anything.. since he has 3 or 4 magazine subscriptions, a wall plaque for his father, and who else knows what he mailed back in, because psychologically he thinks that increases his odds therefore he does it whether intentional or no. these companies have super psychiatrists that focus on media, thats why they buy the stuff and the people who win are harder o find than a needle in all he hay stacks ever built. anyways all corespondence from them they spelled my name wrong, and uniquely wrong. hey always do, and only them. well this new bs letter from the scammers award notification system are using the same wrong name... idiots pathetic idiots... facts of the day

    This should be reported, but maybe there is nothing that can be done because You willing sent money to these fakes. So do be on the safe side, do not sent money because you need that twelve dollars to replace the fake millions. I have seen one comment this post that said they won, but it sound like a rebuttal from the person that sent it. It contained not distinct details of the winnings an no bragging rights.
    Just can not figure for the life of me why I have to pay $12.00 to win a million. why not just deduct it from my million.
    Be mindful, you do not have to pay a processing fee to win free money.

    Just received an Award Notification Commission. This letter looks so very genuine. Look carefully, there is no telephone number on that letter and the signature on my check for $1325, 000.00 looks real.
    This is what I responded. "In view of the fact that I have won all that money unexpectedly, and out of my generosity, please go ahead and pay yourself 10% of this check instead of me only sending you $12.99."
    Just imagine how many people could fall prey to this and pay $12.99 for this crappy letter. You would have compromised your identity and your bank accounts.

    This is the kind of thing that happens in a society where so many families are suppressed economically. The hopes of climbing out of debt through this "Godsend opportunity" out-weigh the loss of the processing fee. People take advantage of that. They weren't really dishonest (except that there is no award). They simply say that you are eligible. However, I received the same letter as everyone else and have the same opinions about the low-life predators as everyone else. I did not send the fee or the letter and I did catch the red flags. How many times do our seniors fall for this crap-shoot garbage?

    Ok I received the same letter, AWARD NOTIFICATION COMMISSION as a matter of fact this is my second one because i didn't respond the first time. P.O. BOX 2905, KANSAS CITY, KS 66110, it is for 2, 000, 000.00 over 30 years at 66, 666.66 per year, haha that is a scary number in itself. or I can elect to take a lump sum of 1, 327, 940.00. I do believe that when the lottery holds back on a lump sum pay out that remainder is to pay taxes isn't it? I could be wrong, yet they say there are no taxes taken out. They offer an addendum of premium which is a add on of a payment for a policy or product which is in this case a $2500 gift certificate at up to 75% off on online merchandise and services. the website is WONrewards.com. The fee is for me 12.99. this way they are not charging you for the possible sweepstakes winnings but for the gift certificate. gift certificates are just that gifts so why are they charging for that. That is why they can send these letters out just like publishers clearinghouse they have the same wording but with a lot more flare and excitement. Chances of winning are astronomical at best. Save your money unless you want to buy something on their website that is up to you. I agree that the letter is really misleading and they hope that all of us will not read the entire form but submit to the hipe.

    Here is the facts! If we all got the same letter claiming that we won 2, 000, 000 dollars. Don't you think they would be broke by now. there is no way that they can give away that much money. Besides that, when you win money they don't require you to send any money to get it. Don't send them any of your money because not only will they get your checking account number and sign. to empty your checking account out of all the money by doing western unions or wire transfers, or they will make checks and since they now have your sign. they will sign the check with your own sign. and pretty soon all the money you have in the account will be gone. Don't do it people for real its all a scam I just got a letter like that today and I sent it back with a letter of my own for them to read. they are not getting my hard earn money for free.

    If you actually READ the letter, it states CLEARLY this is an ENTRY FORM FOR A SWEEPSTAKES and your number won't be considered a winner if its pulled AND you DID NOT pay the processing fee. This letter is for a CHANCE to win $2, 000, 000 its NOT a letter stating that you ACTUALLY WON. You MUST READ the FINE PRINT!!! Its ONLY A CHANCE TO WIN, YOU DIDN"T WIN YET. But I'm not doing it, I have other things i can be spending my money on. Hell if i wanted to spend money on a sweepstakes I'll just buy a lotto ticket.

    I have the year from hell first I'm a good mom I work hard and any other extra time is spent with my son doing sports homework etc... my child support was due to go up from 200 to 2000 I have been out of a job for about a year do to an injury so before its finalized my sons dad goes to court and convinces a judge that I have a drug problem and I'm mentally unstable and they should immediately have an emergency hearing all because all my text were about gibe me money. I was broke and he lives in a fat hours anyways they took my son I couldn't afford a lawyer I passed my drug test and my phyc evil but the judge stated that I was depressed ( I was pissed at my ex for never giving me my child support) The judge ordered me to take pills see this doc and that doc and if I did that I could have my son back well just for the court ordered stuff was well over 5000 a month. not to mention if I had money and a lweyr they never would have done that so when I got this paper for a brief moment I thought all my wished have come true I can get my son back and not have to worryy about renting a room from some strange person ( I live In California an apartment is around [protected] a month I thought I could put my son through college . then I googled the company and they biggest wish iver ever had in my life to get my son back and for something I didn't even do and then sue the pants off the people who put me and my son in this position all of that went out the window and the though of my son being home for the holidays was a dream. I haven't seen my son in over 3 months because the judge ordered supervised visits at 300 each time I see my son a person I have raised for the last 10 years when I cant even hardly feed myself. These people don't know what they are doing to people when they send these letters out. Some people will just throw it away but for people who just need a break or some help it gives them hope and faith and then in an instant they crush it. If you are suing I'm in for that brief sec I thought it was real was the answer to all my prays when I figured out that it was fake I felt my life just fall apart again. For anyone who ha kids who know what I'm talking about our kid are our lives so when money is what it takes to get then back if you don't have money and a judges saying you aren't aloud to see your son unless you pay 300 three times a week. these letters need to stop going out its wrong and it can really hurt. but a part of my wants to send that money in even if its a 1 in a million chance ill take those odds right now !!!

    I just received the same letter claiming that I won 200, 000, 000. But I have to send about 13.00 for processing fees or something. Its horrible that this company actually sends out these notifications trying to make people believe that they've won this money. Especially in this economy right now. Lord Knows I can use at least a 1/4 of this money... But I know its a scam.
