Reader's digest association Ltd / Scam letters

1 Folkestone, England, Kent, United Kingdom Review updated:

i have been sent a letter informing me of a place of winning a quarter of a million pounds among millions in the UK- which i personally think is bizarre. so the reader's digest people tell me that many others have also been lucky enough to win the large amounts of money.

is this too good to be true! in addition they have given a 72 hour
limit for entrees. i mean why would they possibly give 250'000 away for non-customers. we are not even loyal customers- we hav not even spent a penny on a reader's digest.. so why! is this a scam?

they also have a picture of a woman named helen and many others claiming they have won! yeah surely there is some catch!

HELP!! in addition there isn't a fixed name from the person, all we are told is

your sincerely

a mysterious squiggle which looks like jeremy jacob but can possibly be any other!

and then ends with Finance director...

    I also received the same letter. The check seems to be legit but I've heard about people cashing checks from an unknown person and once you've deposited the check then the person who sent the check in the first place has all your bank account info. i'm very curious to see if this is for real or not... I think I will be contacting Reader's Digest to find out what's really going on
