Also recieved one where the envelope has the address p.o.box9002 levittown, ny 11756 in the top left with big bold letters that say LOCATE TO DELIVER. below that is ISSUANCE OFC enclosures with mailed hand written on the line. below that it says usps secure mail sent under strict protection. direct delivery to residence. it is also stamped 12/11/08 with a meter stamp. bottom right reads -Div. Office 8Jt-. Inside envelope is addressed as
    IDENTIFIED INDIVIDUAL
    P.O. Box 9101
    Bethpage, NY [protected]

    I have received the same thing too, and I believed it was true and it was not. I was going to sign the check in the amount of $ 19.99 to sentd to them, and before I mailed it I decided to go on google to such to see if it was a real company and it was not. I thank God I didn't send any check.

    I literally get five of these type of scams a week and actually got taken for over one thousand dollars on a mystery shoppers pitch. I receieved the DRD one today and laughed when I looked it up - if you just won over a million dollars then they should have 19.99 of THAT!

    Me too, i got two letters saying about the same thing. That ive won over a million dollars and so on and so forth.. I'm just curious how they got my name and information. I too was scammed by a mystery shopper scam but they totally got me for almost 4, 000.00. Completely screwed me over and all because of a loop hole in the banking system-- Most people don't know this but it is a federal law that states, 'banks must release money deposited by a check if it sits in your account atleast five days.' That doesnt mean after the five days the check has been cleared, only that it is avalible. And if it goes bad your on the hook for it. Totally sucks, being a full time student and with out money anyways, that just put me 3, 000.00 in the whole. But, remember, what goes around comes around. By the way thanks for the info on these scams.

    Have you ever bought something from AS Seen on TV sites? THAT IS IT!! Accidentally I misspelled my name when I ordered an item to them. After then I receive a lot of rip off phone calls and letters using my incorrect name including this letter "certificate claiming a payment award for $1, 400, 000 if I mailed them a check for $19.99". Be aware and don't trust As Seen on TV sites.

    I received my letter from this scamster Robert Richards, prize announcer for the non-existing DRD company on today; Monday, October 19, 2009. I too went on line to research this mailing because I agree it does look legitimately convincing. Thanks for the information on this scam and all should really be aware especially due to the time of year it is...there will will probably be an increase of this type of terrible activity because we are approaching the holiday season. People all over the country are struggling and in need of finances and a million plus dollars would look awfully good to anyone right now, myself included. Hopefully, due to the information in reference to what this fraudulent mailing is really all about being available via the Internet, this person or group of people are not successful. Thanks again for the valuable information.

    I'm pretty pissed off that some idiot or idiot's with this bird brian idea is tring to scam people as well as myself, at first I was hyped at the thought perhaps I'd won $1, 250, 000.00 .I looked up google regarding the prize money too good to be true, send $19.99, I just bought a base ball bat for $19.99, hoping to play base ball with these kat's.

    in answer to Jreer320 i think the attorney generals office. if all people who get these kinds of mailing just bombbarded his or her office with calls of complaints of these frauds maybe this person robert richards would be in jail. this guy is no better than Bernie Maddoff. We as a society have become so lax that the government state and federal just ignore the problem while us tax paying citezens get the shaft from the criminals of this country. i long for the days of public hangings. if they ever brought it back there would be a dramatic drop in crime.

    I got a mailing from DRD Office TODAY. I looked for a street address, phone number and a website. So, I went online and typed in DRD in Google. I clicked on the first answer to my search and here I am. I appreciate BSW comments. I am 79 yrs old. I thank you all for your comments. I threw it my wastebasket. AND I thank the Lord for giving me to desire to learn computers in 1983. AND I thank Bill Gates & Steve Jobs for paving the way for the PC.

    I just recieved the same letter. It's a total scam everyone ! I knew it was a scam just because of the simple fact that I NEVER WIN ANYTHING!!! So all of a sudden I'm winning sweepstake after sweeptakes. I don't think so. God bless the internet and god bless all of you good people. Keep looking out for each other ( especially the elderly, what if was your grandmother) and we can defeat these @[email protected]$%#!!!
