this is a common scam of disreputable companies that are only out to rip off the little guy. Having recently retiring from the postal service you will notice that the postage on these letters is first class. Upon delivery attempt the carrier must do 1 of 3 things - deliver it, send it through the forwards, or mark it as undeliverable and return it. Since it is 1st class, it is not considered junk mail. If it is a good forward then the co. will get your new address. What anyone who gets any 1st class mail they don't want, then they should endorse the envelope, without being opened, as refused and return to your carrier. This way they can legally return it to the people that sent it to you. This co. is on a mission to scam $9 & up of as many people as they can. Ask yourself this one little question, how many people out of every thousand will send in this kind of small money to win a good sizeable amount? If you think about it, they don't even want to give you a list of names of winners. Even publishers clearing house does that!!! You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this scam. Hope this helps some of you make up your mind (preferably all of you).

I received a confirmed guaranteed win of 1, 000, 000.00 today from and a chance to win
15, 000.00 with a 1080 qualifying question with a payment fee request of 9.00 I wonder how much money they spend sending all this mail out there must be an awful lot of naive and gull-able people out there because I figure if I'd won some money why would I have to pay to get it, and why couldn't they subtract the payment fee from my winnings. lol

I received the same letter requesting $9 for a !!!chance!!! to win $15, 000. I ask myself the same question, why would I pay you to give me money, just take the fee out of the $15, 000.

@An unsatisfied customer1 In the USA: Sweepstakes are required by LAW, by CHANCE that you may win. As well as sweepstakes are free to enter. This on ther other hand request that you pay them $9 in the envelope to claim this check or whatever. Therefore from what I've seen; this mail is a scam as they are requesting you and I our money.
