I received the same letter and check. My amount was the same with the same promise to send more. They wanted a call before I cashed the check. The claim number is the same to. This is a scam.

My daughter received the exact same check yesterday, I new this was a scam, but she didn't think so. Now she knows that she was scammed. They also told her that the rest of the money was coming today, but in order for her to get it delivered she had to send them another 1, 000 dollars. Are these people for real?

I received the same letter and check with all of the same information. Fortunately I believed it to be phony and decided to check on line. It pays to check things out.

Ive received the same letter. It said the same thing the claim number was exaclly the same and the only thing different is that I got a different phone number. I looked up the address they gave me and I didn't find it. Theres no such thing as a 277 Queen Charlotte Drive Edmonton Canada!

Their is nothing free in this world because their is always a catch to everything. whether it be an advertising scam or just a scam for people to steal money nothing is truly free! Dont ever believe someone is actually giving something free especially in the mail. This scam has been going on for a very long time but just remember people how in the world could you win the lottery if you never entered?

Most people will see that this is a scam while there is some that wants things for free, that they are so greedy they will chance it. NOT ME. I commented on this a couple weeks ago. I knew it was a scam, I just wanted to know if anyone had any information about this scam.

I had a person named Micheal Henderson or just Micheal, who constantly call me to get money for Mega million sweepstakes. He call my phone asking for money to pay for insurance to deliver a Mercedes 2012 and money 2.5 million dollars. He want to get a money order and later a green money dot card. He wanted money so bad. He ask to pay off your credit card so you can get money off the card. He used a check routing number and account number just to get you to get money from your account. Luckily, my relative spotted this man was a phony and no money was not given. He will still call you trying to trick you out of money. These people are desperate and will do anything just to get your money. Be careful!
