The envelope that i'm suppose to send back with check, money order or cash along with with signed & dated documents is addressed to prpcessing dept / refistered disbursement division po box 266, 6400 ac heerlen, the netherlands & without a zip code. Needless to say i didn't mail any payments but i sent a nasty note with the paper work, back to these guys!! Please warn everyone! P / s there is no phone number in the letter.

Received a letter from Registered Disbursement Division, PMB 305, 265 Sunrise Highway, STE. 1, Rockville Center, NY 11570. The letter says I won $2, 245, 189.00, payable upon sending a check for $20.00. My money is to be used to 'Process Report and Records'. Sounded odd, so tried to look it up on the internet only find every thing related says 'SCAM'. Just as I thought. Plus, the return preaddressed envelope goes to Processing Dept., Registered disbursement Division, PO Box 266, 6400 AC Heerlen, The Netherlands, no zip code. STINKS of SCAM!!

Once again I received the same letter dated 8-7-13. It arrived in my mail box on 8-19-13 asking for three signatures, a $25.00 payment in the form of cash, check or money order and to be returned to the Processing Dept. Registered Disbursement Division PO Box 266, 6400 AC Heerlen, the Netherlands by 8-21-13. It would be very difficult to return these documents in the time period presented. The letter was sent from Registered Disbursement Division, PMB 303, 265 Sunrise Highway, Ste1, Rockville Centre, NY 11570. I see several complaints, but no response or any action taken on these complaints. Is this site just another scam to make us feel better?

yep got the same letter, actually 2 of them one from RDD for a prize of 2245189.00 and the other from Addleshaw, Bird & Mitchell, for a prize award of 2997500.00. I too had my doubts and wanted to look into this just to come and find out that they are scamers. If you read the letter for RDD it says you have won ANOTHER prize of... Please dont fall for it, there are so many people out there who are so far down in their luck and have prayed to God to send them a little helping hand, they get this and think its the helping hand. Just to find out that they will never receive it. If we can all do our part for the little guys then maybe we can put theses scamersl out of buisness, and put away.

who are these people that are out scamming folks, they should be stopped, this isn't right, of course I got kind of excited thinking that my financially problems are over, until I saw the processing fee of $20.00, the envelope even has a warning label if anyone interferring or obstructing with delivery of this letter a 2, 000 fine or 5 years of imprisonment why are they allowed to put this information out if its a scam. I saw that a lot of people received the same letter with the same winning amount of 3, 062, 814.00 from RDD the return envelope has no zip code P.O. Box 266 6400 AC HEERLEN, The Netherlands. Wow I'm pissed that folks are out to scam and make money off of other people just image if everyone they contact this the winning amount sends in $20.00 they are the ones who are accumulating wealth. IS THERE SOMEONE OUT THERE WHO CAN PUT A STOP TO THIS SCAM! or will folks continue to get robbed.

You all are not alone I just received a letter stating that I won $3, 0064, 814.00. No telephone number to contact the office based out of Rockville Center LI. I am truly skeptical and suspicious of the scam artist out there. I refuse to send any money it's going in the trash. I did some research online and I didn't find any company's information only complaints about scam reports. I hope they get shutdown because a lot of people will not do research to find out about them. The way the economy is tough and everyone needs money people a lot of desperate people won't question this matter. I think it's sad that people will do something like this.

why are these scams artist even allowed to operate in this country. I received a letter from this " Registered Disbursement Division " saying that I am diffinately receiving a check in the amount of $3.062.814.00 dollars and they have the stupidity of saying I owe them $20.00 for them to send me the check for process report and records.
Why can't these stupid people stop doing this to honest hard working people like myself.

On 12/23/13 I received a letter stating that I had won $3, 062, 814.00 I thought to myself while reading the letter how is this possible when I haven't entered in to a sweepstake. The other red flags about the letter is that there is no company phone number, and the time frame to respond is total unrealistic. Also when you look the company up online all you see is the word scam. I am going through some very difficult financial experiences, and I almost sent the money. However, my common sense led me to look the company up online, and thank god I did. Although twenty dollars is not alot, but when money is limited twenty dollars is alot. I hope that all of the comments will be enough to keep someone from becoming a victim to these scammers.

Doesn't surprise me that here it is October 16, 2014 and these ###s are still trying! Hello everyone reading this. If you've come back for any reason to re-post or if someone new is reading this, t here is some updated information; This particular scammer is now going by "Disbursement Research Associates" from Baldwin NY. Their charges haven't changed, it's still $20.00 only NOW the self-addressed envelope to send your FFS (fee for ###) to is P.O. Box 9005, Baldwin, NY 11510-9005. ( It does not surprise me that many of the posts above have reply address' in the Netherlands! They are notorious for these kind of mailings. As a matter of fact, if you ever try to call "International Information (411) for any contact number in the good ole' "Netherlands", the operator will blatantly tell you that the United States operators have absolutely NO ACCESS to the Netherlands as concerns telephone "information". ) Yup that's right! They don't allow us to access their telephone information. Pretty convenient isn't it. (Try it for yourself). Anyway, back to the subject at hand... PERSONALLY I have been receiving these type of mailings for almost 2 years and have called, written and spoken with the Consumer Protection Bureau. Unfortunately as of late, I've been receiving telephone calls from people claiming they are from the US Consumer Protection Bureau inquiring about mailings and calls I am getting. I take their name, number if they will give it (either way it's on the caller ID and is usually toll free) and I then call a number I have to access a list of employees of the CPB in the area they say they are from. GUESS WHAT? No such employee... Anyone surprised? After all this time dealing with this, I can sincerely tell anyone who questions why nothing has been done about these companies and unscrupulous individuals who send these letters that the reason is because of something I have been trying to get the word out for such a long time I almost gave up. Unfortunately the information does not get spread around enough because, as someone stated above, these places are still in business. Word of mouth is the ONLY way to stop these people. I'll explain why for those of you reading this who care enough to spread the word enough to where these ###s will have no-one left to send these letter to. Then, just MAYBE, we'll be rid of them. READ ON > THESE LETTERS ARE TOTALLY LEGAL. Please everyone, read the wording in your correspondence and pass this on. These letters (as an example) will all say something to the effect of; " You are 100% eligible to receive $2, 500, 000.00 immediately when conditional stipulations have been satisfied as per published parameters". Or you will read something like: " Your name has been found through our computerized investigation of over 50, 000 individuals to be 100% eligible for outstanding monetary award in the amount of $2, 500, 000.00. payable in bankable monies by way of direct deposit or certified check. THEY WILL ISSUE THE WORDING IN THESE LETTERS IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS THAT YOU HONESTLY HAVE TO HAVE SOME LEGAL BACKROUND TO BE ABLE TO DICYPHER THEM AND FIND WHERE THEY ARE (not lying) BUT EXPANDING THE TRUTH TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THIS APPLIES TO "ONLY " YOU!!
THEY ARE NOT SAYING you have "guarantee" or you have been"singled out" - "specifically chosen" - solely elected, etc. While it's true that the remainder of the letter they make you feel like they are speaking ONLY to you about "money", look also for the wording "reportage" - "documentation" - and the likes. The "reportage and/or documentation" is what you will get for your ($) fee and if they actually send it to you! If you receive this in the mail next, it will be just what it says. A report that documents various sweepstakes and contests which, if you enter ALL of them (and they ARE for free) you are entitled to win the money. Needless to say, if you enter ALL OF THEM INCLUDED IN THE REPORT THEY SEND YOU, that makes you "eligible" to win the total amount of 2, 500, 000! ERGO - Legality on their part regarding their initial letter!! Sneaky hugh... In closing (and my apologies for the length of this comment) but my frustration in my inability to get to people before they spend money they don't have gets the better of me), REMEMBER THE ONE REAL TRUE #1 RULE OF THUMB, (even if after reading this you still have difficulty believing you have not won something) REMEMBER THAT YOU NEVER (EVER- EVER- EVER) PAY ANY MONEY FOR ANY PRIZE, SWEEPSTAKES, ETC THAT YOU WIN. (not to mention that you will be the first to know if you've won anything and not some bogus research company). In closing, I will check back on this website whenever I get a chance to help out if anyone needs. I've been doing that with some others and am happy to say that I've gotten to 1 or 2 people before these ###s have! Only 1 or 2 but it's a start! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! (donna)

I just received a letter from IMMEDIATE DISBURSEMENT DIVISION, 218 E. Park Ave, PMB 103 Long Beach, N.Y. 11561 today 12/2/14 stating that I had one $3, 062, 814.00. When I saw the $20.00 fee I suspected it was a scam. Why do these people have the right to send such garbage in the mail? I too am also on a fixed income. I hope they get caught and thrown in prison before they collect any more money.
