In addition to above, there is a Consumer Information statement on the back of letter that says they are unaffiliated with any organization. Amazing, a company that takes the winning names and addresses of the winners of contests that you didn't enter and tells you that they will send you $1, 800, 000.00 if you send them $20 cash/check/Money Order. But no credit cards are accepted - why then there would be a record and proof of fraud,

Me too, rec'd letter from this Michael Anthony, telling I will be receiving $1, 800, 000.00 but have to sent $20.00. At first I was so excited, but I prayed and asked for guidance, then I went to google to search this Financial Payment announcement and found out this is scam.
Thank God, He guided me. I save my $20. All of us should be vigilant in this kind of fraud.

Got same letter from our good friend Michael Anthony. I retrned the letter they wanted me to sign with a big SCREW YOU in red where my signature was supposed to go. I then mailed the "love letter" in the return envelope they provided without a postage stamp or return address. Hopefully they will get it and have to pay the postage only to find my terms of endearment inside!! I hope they get a chuckle out of that.

I recieved the same letter today from the same Michael Anthony only the letter says it is from Plainview NY. Once I saw that they were asking for 20$ in order for the pay out I got suspicious. The only sweepstakes I enter are Publishers Clearing House. No where's on the letter did it say that it was from them. I sure would like to win this amount of money but no way can I afford to pay 20$. That money is hard to come by for me as we are an extremely low income house hold with no income except student loans. It is a shame that people will try to take advantage of poor people like us. Thank you for this website as it prevents a lot of people from getting scammed.

I too, got the exact same mailing. Anyone notice the announcement says a lot of nothing!!, Sure this isn't coming from our own government. But really, why can't these butt-heads be tracked down & arrested??

I too received the exact same letter in the mail today. Anyone notice is said a lot of nothing? Sounds like its from a government official! But really, why can't this ###(s) be tracked down & arrested. The government wastes more money on stupid stuff like finding out how far a frog can jump. Just an idea why don't they spend this money getting these scam artist and putting them behind bars?

Just read a ton of letters from a lot of people. I agree, where are the "YES MEN"? Too many frogs jumping? It's a shame we live in a country that can allow the working or lower class citizens be scammed by the biggest losers and I don't mean the people loosing weight. We all struggle to feed etc ... our families. There are many alphabet soup groups out there that should be able to nip this in the per viable too-sh. FBI being one of the bowls of soup.

I just received that letter and a lot of other letters stating the same or identical thing from the same person. even though it would be very nice to have that kind of money "Why should I/we have to send anything if I/we have won, " REALLY dose these jumping frogs think that we all are stupid to fall for that? And the people that's desperate who need it will be the ones to lose because they want to jump into the pound, not knowing how to swim. And as for the soup whats up with CIA, along with the FBI? as we all seem to feel our country is going to the pigs...Where are they when we the little people needs them??? can anyone tell me? Thank you all for your comments.
