Letter - claims I won

This fraudulent business called ""Sweepstakes Audit Bureau just Sent me a letter today asking for me to send them $5 so I could get 12 million. Really? Why would anyone send in $5 to get 12 million? Utter stupidity. Will the authorities look into this? I wonder if they really get people to send them $5? Please find these dumb people and lock them up.

Letter - claims I won

letter claiming chance to win 12000,000.00

I received said letter and sent five dollars (5.00) what a jerk I was when I mostly never pay attention to any of these letters. This time I thought it was real!!! no chance of a return of five dollars--lesson learned!!! my own fault. I believed the Audit Sweepstakes Bureau was legitimate--why are these fraudulent prize reports allowed to continue scamming hones persons.

Scam Sweepstakes wanting money from me

Company wants me to pay them $5.00 so I can claim my reward of $12, 000, 000.00. This was a letter sent to me on 3/27/2020 The envelope mentions: Important Notification, claim form enclosed. It envelope mentions dated document with registration number, deliver only to person addressed or authorized party.

Mail received requesting money to send me some report

I did a little research on the above named company after receiving in the mail what appeared to be a guarantee of some kind of Sweepstakes winnings or something to that effect. If I return by the deadline and include a minimal fee of $5. It appears this is a scam and I'm just letting whomever know they are still in operations. Personally this is the first time I've won and that's only because I did not send the $5!

Mail received requesting money to send me some report

sweepstakes scam

I received 2 letters today from this fraudulent company telling me to send them $5.00 for my entry into their sweepstakes to win $12,000, 000.00 and the other letter also told me to send them $5.00 so I could claim my Prize Claim of $10,000.00.

We should file a Class Action Lawsuit against these scammers and shut them down! I'm going to reach out to the Texas State Attorney General's Office also and file a Consumer Complaint.

sweepstakes entry that I paid for several different times. (I know now, it was a big mistake)

I received several letters saying I could be the winner of 12, 000, 000.00 in the first few letters it didn't ask for money & I filled out & sent back hoping to win. But then I started getting letters saying they'd send me reports with all sweepstakes available to enter for a fee of $5 or $15 & they'd enter them for me & then send me a report about it, plus do a worldwide search to check see if I'd won without knowing about it. To try cut this short. I was a dumb a*s & ended up sending a total of $75 & just yesterday I got another letter & I sent them a long letter letting them know how I felt. Now today I get another one. By the way I Never Won Anything!!! Help, What should I do?

letter re: fraud letter sweepstakes

I received a letter telling me I had won a sweepstakes for 12, 000, 000.00, and I needed to send $5.00 processing fee. I am 68, and this appears to be someone preying on the elderly. I wonder how many checks they received for $5.00? This fraud should be investigated by someone of authority in Dallas, Texas. It is a shame that this ordination is able to use the US Postal Service to mail this type of fraud letter to the elderly.

Deadline 09/21/19.

Since they were asking for $5 I figured it was a scam. So I want to put my name with other people who have received the same letter.


They sent me a letter saying that I needed to send $5.00 before 7/20/19 so I sent then zero dollars what else should I do and why should I do it. Now I can't think of any thing else5
Tell me how I can help u get them to get it done by the time I get it is a pretty little head to get it done before they try ripping more people off these [censored] must be stupid.



I received a letter from them. They ask me to send $5 to enter a sweepstak for a chance to win $12, 000, 000.00. And it says void after 07/20/19. And it says prize report funds remain unclaimed. And it says personal and confidential. It has a envelope to send the form back to: Claim Form Processing Center, Sweepstakes Audit Bureau, P.O. Box 131637, Houston, TX [protected]


scam prize funds, $12,000,000 unclaimed

June 26, 2019

Today I received a notice from Sweepstakes Audit Bureau with a Dallas, TX, P.O. Box address.

The letter sounded and looked very official, claiming that there was $12, 000, 000 in unclaimed prize money. It I just sent them a one time research and data fee of $5.00, "which must be assessed for each report", and fill out the enclosed Entry Data Claim Form, I will be eligible "for over $12, 000, 000 in sweepstakes money and prizes".

This is a scam, plain and simple!

scam prize funds, $12,000,000 unclaimed

laptop computer, android tablet, and sewing machine with accessories.

Above items on a Layaway Plan with company. Sent check which was returned by Post Office for being "undeliverable".
I phoned company and automated voice said the number was no longer in service. Could not leave message on the
company's website either. Have received no communication from the company. I would like to get a refund from
all the money I paid the company per our Layaway Agreement if they are unable to honor the contract. If they do not
contact me to arrange for the refund, then they have committed a Breach of Contract. My question: Since I am not the only
one complaining, has there been any action taken against the company, either individually or by a Class Action
lawsuit? Or can this issue be solved out of court?

I've been sending $5.00 to this sweepstake for over a year, now and how long does it last. If its a scam how do I get my money back?

The awards director is Rich Brady. They say 12million is the highest unclaimed money. Send 5.00 each time for research and we send it back by a deadline. It never ends. Their is another p.o. box 549012-Dallas Tx. [protected]. But the envelope is p.o. box 131637 Houston Tx, [protected]. I've been sending five dollars about every month or so for over a year now and want my money back. If we can't get this resolved here then a lawyer will get it resolved

received obvious fraud letter

Receive letter from this 'Bureau', claim that I had to send them 5$ to process 'my request' for eligibility to win 12, 000, 000$. I needed to send the money alone with completion of the form that came as part of the letter. Definitely a fraudulent group scamming money from people. I have gotten hundreds of calls for similar things. This definitely needs to be looked into.

unclaimed prize funds

Received the exact same letter as other dated 12/22/18 with a document number and eligibility to claim $12 million dollars. Requested $5.00 be sent for a one time data and research fee and mail by the deadline date if 12/22/18 the same date of the letter. The claim form cannot be processed without the $5.00 dollars. And added this is the highest amount ever paid. Scams are unlawful so why haven dallas prosecuted someone of this illegal operation

Please stop these scammers from praying on innocent people. Thank you.

to research a person's identity for $5.00 processing fee for 12,000,000.00 worth of unclaimed prize money.

The date of this incident was December 29, 2018. The envelope was postmarked for December 21, 2018. Their was a document number on the correspondence. It was #[protected]. The sender was Sweepstakes Audit Burear, P.O. Box 549012, Dallas, TX 75354. They were asking for a $5.00 processing fee to research my identity and to send me a prize report. The awards director's name was signed Rich Brady.

I assume they want my bank information so that they can draw out what I have left. Please send a bureau or government department that we can all write to so that we can have these scammers removed and to stop them from doing this to unsuspecting people. I am unable to send a copy of the letter. My apologies.

Please do the best you can to help the public. Put it on the news. That's a good idea.


$5.00 Money order submitted on my error to support fraud, that I was not aware of at the time. Their order number given to me, [protected]-9217 so called "12 Million Dollar Prize". United State postal money order submitted, #[protected]. If there was a way that I could call the post office locally, and place a do not pay, I damned sure would. I hope they die like a dog, for what they they are doing, to probably hundreds of people and getting away with it. I have my evidence with the money order, that I paid for.

received a letter asking to send money.

I just received a letter from Sweepstakes Audit Bureau for prize report funds unclaimed . It is asking me to send $5.00 for a research and data fee. I've never known you have to send any money for a sweepstakes unless you have purchased something. So I was sending this message in hopes of finding out if this is really a scam. It would be greatly appreciated if I got feedback on this.

    I also received a 12, 000, 000 notice requesting $5.00 fee first. Strange that I had not entered a drawing and there was no explanation of what drawing it stemmed from. It was from Box 131637 in Houston. I do deal with PCH so I think they got my name and address from there. Anyway, I'm glad I checked on line which is what I would expect everyone should do. Thanks for the alert.

Something came over me this morning 10/31/2018 I thought I should look this company name up even when I called they said a different name the person I spoke to confirmed I had the right place . I said you gave a different name . His response was we handle the audit I did mentioned my findings he denied it all ask me stop believing what I read . Well that sounded scimmish so I ended the call . Before hanging up we was insisting my name and zip code .That to me was crazy

THE SWEEPSTAKES AUDIT BUREAU of Dallas, TX. sent me a letter requesting five dollars to enter a sweepstakes. This is suspicious because I have never heard of this company.

I do not believe I will have a chance to win $12 million dollars by entering this sweepstakes, and I would like to see this company prosecuted for sending fraud mail through the US mail service. This is the second letter of this nature I have received from this company this month.

I would be helpful to know how to report such rip-offs to the authorities. This bogus company needs to be shut down and should not be allowed to use the US mail to deliver their scams to the public.

Please, somebody go to this post office box and find out why these people are trying to rip us off.


they say it's a guarantee that will win 12,000,000.00

This so called company sent me a letter stating it's a claim form for a guarantee win of the amount listed above and said to send in $5.00 for a data/research fee. First off what kind of sweepstakes are you guarented to win and request money for? At first I thought is this really true then I read where it asks for money. Um, I don't think so scam artist your not getting not money. Not today, tomorrow and not any other day as well. I don't crap like this and I wish this kind of stuff would stop sending me notices and the phone calls, it's getting ridiculous and very aggravating. These kind of people need stopped and charges need to be pressed for fraud, this is not right by any means and they should not get away with this. If you send in the $5.00 your a fool and you have your head examined for sure. Its got SCAM written all over it. If it was me doing this I would be in jail, so is this happening to us. I'm a private person and don't buy into this kinda crap. Just leave me alone.

unethical behavior

My husband received a letter stating he's in the running for 12, 000, 000.00 all he has to do is send them $5.00 for processing fees. This can be done in the form of cash, check or credit card. This is an outrage. There are way too many senior citizens getting scammed because of these fraudulent scams. These victims often give up their bank/credit card information only to get scammed more. These people should not be allowed to do business anywhere.
