    I have recieved a letter stating that I am a Gran Slam Winner, but have never entered anything to be crowned the winner of! I have never even heard of the company, so be wary of anything that arrives on your doorstep through the post! They want me to send them £5.00 in the post!

    I won a grand slam from Haplin Data Services back in 2006 - 2008 and I sent in $10.00 for a list of winnners and didn't recieve any money accept a letter from the USA goverment indicating my money was handed over to Mrs. Anne Robinson acting on my behalf. I can be reached at 1-508-798-8596 if further details is needed. I hope that this situation can be resolved in a professional manner. Thank You!

    I was informed I won a prize from your lottery and I sent in 10.00 dollars for a list of winners and was informed that my money was picked up from the USA government. They were acting on my behalf and I would like to know if you can look into this matter further. the drawing took place between 2005 - 2008. Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    Received a postcard from the same address saying I won $3, 000, 000 from Canada 6/49. They want card returned along with $10 and within 7 days so I can receive delivery. Doesn't make sense that Australia would be handling winnings for Canada 6/49. Thank you for your web site and all the comments.

    Hi Claudette,
    I know this post is almost a year old, but just in case this lingered in the back of your mind, this "lottery" is fake. The hopes of this lottery is simple. If 600, 000 people fall for the scam and send in a measly $10.00 then the scammers are now millionaires raking in $6, 000, 000. I have attempted to go after these people and other smiliar scammers, but since they are out of the country there is really nothing that we can do other than inform others and pass the word. There are other variations of the scammers including one person being "stuck at an airport" or "lost thier child" which is sure to play on the strings of any parents heart. Sorry that you wasted $10.00 to these $%*Q)$)@($. If you have any other questions you can email me @ BSTNROMEO1985@Yahoo.com

    Why did the man in the brown suit come from australia and spend time here in the USA. Also the Spain Lottery winnings was fake as well I guess! Whether it was or not thanks for the information late in life! So was Australia' flooding fake?
