    The time and effort and printing cost and postage they use to scam you out of twenty dollars I guess could be be a very good income if they hit 20, 000 people they have made $400.000. I have been getting a lot of these from different Companies, I even lost trust with Readers Digest. These kind of Scams plays on your emotions and as for myself I could use that type of money to better my present situation for life.The rule to remember if it's sounds to good to be true it is probably not true, red flag if they ask for money.

    If you have to pay for something you allegedly won, it's a scam. They feed on people's desperation. Don't fall for it.

    I got one too. It said 2.5 million. I'm a poor person going to school with a dream of eventually being able to open a wildlife rescue center. I thought my dreams had come true. It was heartbreaking to myself and my children. Where do I file my complaint? Someone please tell me, I want to file. It's 5-12-09.

    Anytime you get junk like this, look at the postage mark on the front of the envelope. If it was real and you won, they would not mail the notification bulk postage. It would arrive certified so that they have record of receipt.

    I have been recieving these same letters for the past few months, they say hurry time is running out. They still have not chosen a winner, I still haven't sent the 20 dollars. I bet once I send it, I wont be the winner. I'm tired of getting this junk. These people prey on people that are trusting, it looks real until you really read into it. They should be investigated and charged with fraud.

    Thank You America! These scams really are coming at people in their greatest time of need. I received a letter asking me to send $20.00 by a certain time for $2, 000, 000.00. It would really be nice to have won that, but it is hardly likely I would have to send $20.00 to claim it if I had. What I really wish is that we as Americans could support one another by donating to a fund $5.00 each, and distribute it to families as needed. Sort of like our own stimulus package! It is quite evident that the government is not going to help the taxpayers. Well anyway thanks for the heads up on this company.

    Yes! i too got a mail from money motion V asking for the discounted payment of $25 (actually it was $30). Thank god i have come across this area and i am safe. Because i am not able to spend money for eating 3 times a day and cutting it short to 1 or 2 times a day there by i could keep my child happy in taking her to Mcdonalds once in 10days atleast. These companies play with our emotions.

    I was one of the ones who had gotten a prize letter that I have 2, 500, 000.00 in cash and prizes waiting for me. I was very suspicious about that because I didn't recall entering a drawing such as this, that's why I took the time to google it before I sent any monies out. Thank God I did. It's a shame how people can be be so cruel to play with ones emotions.

    I myself just received a letter in the mail from this International Awards Advisor. I am to receive $2, 500, 000 if I send them a $20 processing fee. Dumb ###. Chances are one of you idiots is reading this. Come up with something more original. If I won so much money, bring it to my door step in cash and the i'll give you your crummy $20 bucks. I blame it on our officials who for years have known about scam artists like these and do nothing. Unfortunately there are still geniuanly good hearted needy people in the world that would pay $20 for a few cents more. Those are the ones who get suckered. Isn't steeling money in illegal offers and advertisement a crime anymore? I remeber years ago when you could put someone in jail for misrepresentaton or illegal advertisement. What in gods name do we have fraud investigators for? There is a comment on here from 278 days ago. You can't tell me you can't find these people in 278 days... PLEEEEEAAAAASSSSEEE!!! So are our special intellegence units slipping or are our officials sleeping? Get those godd for nothing [censored]ers put them in jail and throw away the key. You put bad check writers and people who don't pay for taxes in jail right, well this contitudes the same fraud.
