I received an official mail delivery form w098 saying I had won $2, 000, 000.00 and I could get it in 30 payments of $66, 667.00 or in one lump sum of $1, 250, 000.00. Then the form said I had to send an applied fee of $11.89 in order to secure the money. Stupid me sent the check for $11.89 and I have not heard a word. I got to thinking about it shortly after I sent it and got a bad gut feeling it was fraud. I started checking on line under award notification commission/aka next gen and found 70 complaints of fraud just like this one. I want these people stopped and I want my $11.89 back and I want to know if I have groundsto sue these people for fraud. I have done lots of paper work on this and have the forms. Sent to me. I"m mad at myself, but these documents look very much official. It has for the address the following:. Office of the president, award notification commission, official records and contact - financial matters, processing & judging plaza, po box 2905, kansas city, ks 66110 and then under that it says united states of america. Mr. James mallory signed the form. It all looked and sounded so official. What a dope I am. I hope you can get these bozos and put them in jail. I don't want to see anyone else scammed.

I don't know if this is real are not.I'm a loving mother of 3 wonderful children and to me every dime counts.For something like this is a dream come true not just for me but for my family.The things that was going though my head when I received that letter in the mail stating that i could Win 2, 000, 000.00 was astounding to my ears. As a mother I would very much so want this to be real. My mother has always told me you have to put in to get in. In other words nothing is free. Maybe it is me that have high expectations. As a mother who wouldn't? Every Mother wants the best for there children so every 11.89 that they ask for they are taking from my children. If this is a scam.

I bet no one has even thought of this, but I would bet that this scam actually comes from our own corrupt government as another way to take it's peoples money.

I am very truly surprised to see this negative true comments about ANC. I too received a letter stating the exact same thing and that I should pay a dispatch fee of $11.89. Shame on them! And I hope they are caught before they mess up other innocent people like us who would be so desperate and not see the need to research if this company is a fake or not. I had a wierd feeling about it too because as I recall I did not enter in any draw or sweepstake to deserve this kind of false surprise. If only it was true. And for the person who stated that it is a government scam, I dont believe so because anyone can use the government's identity to fool us so that we can easily believe. So, my point being, no I dont think the government is behind it leroyg. Thank you all for the eye opener. Jaynemik

Wow, thanks to people like all of you no one else will be scammed. This proves the saying, "One person can make a difference, " true. You are brave for just sharing your experience. Many people wouldn't have and that makes you special. May good things happen to/for you. Nothing good will come to those scam artists. In fact they are digging themselves a very deep dark financial hole and will fall prey to the same type but much better scam. For Carma is real and what you give out comes back seven times. Again, thank you for not being a victim but a victor.

I just received a notice today similar to yours " for $2, 000, 000". ... I thought ya sure. When I got to the bottom it asked for money $11.89. That tipped me off, it's a scam. No real contest ask for money, even Publisher's Clearinghouse says no purchase necessary. If it ask for money don't do it.

I am so glad for the internet because I knew to be suspicious when I saw that one has to send 11.89 which is not a lot of money and one would be tempted to send the money but I am so glad that I researched this and my suspicion was confirmed.Rule of thumb: One should not have to pay money to win money especially when it's worded as if the money is yours but there is also a notice just below the "official signature" that says "No pruchase necessary to win" which is a major warning.

my 86 yr old mom fell for this scam also. She sent 20 to one person then another 30 to another person, well 4 times she sent money. This place was one of them. When she told me of how she was going to spend it and how she was going to divide it between 6 children, and all the good she was going to do with it, it made me sick. I ask to see the paper work and immediately took it home to check it out, She has no computer. Everyone of them was fraud. The worse part was she had sent checks from her acc so now they have her account routing number and access to her account. We immediately went to the bank and closed the account, and will be going to the police today to report it. They have to print a statement in the local paper to warn people of the current scam in our area. Then we are going to the Postal Service to find out what can be done and how it is allowed to go through our US Postal system. She has learned her lesson. I reminded her if these people have monies to give away there are places like St Judes Children Hosp. etc that they can give to and get a tax break. People dont just give money away. They would have to pay a gift tax on it and their not going to do that. IF ITS SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS. momsdaughter

I to received the same letter as all of you did. I am disable, I have 3 children I am on ssd maybe getting a total of 2, 000 a mth and food stamps, when my letter came in, I just got home from the hospital visiting my mother who has cancer, I got my mail and had a letter saying they cut me off my food stamps, then I was so happy when i open up the letter telling me i was the winner of 2 million dollars and all i needed to do is send in 11.89 so like a dummy i jump in my and dropped of the 11.89 . I got home and got on google and look up anc and my life once again came falling down. How this could really send someone who is already in such a bad place, right over the edge. there should be jail time for people who can steal money by lying.. whats the difference from breaking into someones house and taking things, and mailing people letters to their homes saying all the lies, to get you to send money under false pretense????? mothershopes

Im sure glad I googled this before I made it to the store to get my money order. I am sorry to hear everyones tragic stories. I hope they get stopped soon. If we all sent them the envelope with a BIG "F**K YOU" in it, I bet we get to the bottom of this or atleast some response.

If determined as WINNER prize will be payable as: key word determined:you haven't won yet. IMPORTANT:An applied fee of $11.89 must be enclosed as REQUIRED by AWARD NOTIFICATION COMMISION if electing to secure the PREMIUM OFFER purchase for delivery. Key words: if electing secure OFFER: Also no purchase necessary. Purchase will not increase chance of winning. So enter the sweepstakes just don't by nothing.also if you have to pay money then you didn't win a prize?
