I too received this award letter telling me that I was a winner. For whatever reason this ugly game or prank is being played, when you dig one ditch, you better dig two. To all be ware and be wise to theses play pranks, the one who sent this it will return to you again, but maybe not the same way. why not put them on the blast and let the television determined who is really the lucky winner?

THIS IS A BIG FAT SCAM! MELZY IN THE BOX WITH THE 2, 000, 000 AREA IT DOES STATE "FUNDS CONFIRMED TO THE WINNER UPON RESPONSE"...U R RIGHT N OTHER AREAS OF THE LETTER IT INDICATES AS IF U HAVE THE CHANCE TO WIN, BUT THE ABOVE FACT INDICATES DIFFERENT. NOT A CHANCE BUT THAT U ACTUALLY HAVE WON UPON RESPONSE. LIKE I ALWAYS SAY N DO " I DON'T BELIEVE N PAYING MONEY TO GET MONEY, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE IS NO CONTACT NUMBER." LETTER IS ALSO STATING THAT NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY N THAT PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE UR CHANCE OF WINNING, WELL THERE IS NOTHING THERE TO EVEN CHOOSE TO PURCHASE (RED FLAG AGAIN). WHERE IN THE HELL DID THEY GET R DAMN INFO. FROM ANYWAY!!! SEEMS LIKE EVERY SINCE I ENTERED PUBLISHER CLEARING HOUSE I'VE GOTTEN S%#T LIKE THIS, HUMMMMM? WHEN WE ENTER SWEEPSTAKES, COUPONS ETC. AND THEY CLAIM THAT THEY DON'T SHARE R INFO. HOW N THE HELL IS THERE REAL PROOF OF THAT FACT FOR US?


GO TO HELL OR JAIL FAKERS

Yes, I too am a sucker! But, the letter looked so OFFICIAL! So, $11.95 down the drain. Wish I would have googled this sooner! I could have put ALMOST THREE GALLONS of gas in my car!

IT'S A SCAM...DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!

Better Business Bureau of Central & Eastern KY


Yet another sweepstakes mailing is hitting area homes, looking so real it could fool you into needlessly sending money. A Madison County man received what he thought sure looked like a notice that he had won two million dollars. Still something did not sound right about it, so he sent it to your Better Business Bureau.

It's a large document with fancy looking seals and dollar amounts with lots of zeros. It states it is from the Office of the President of the Award Notification Commission in Kansas City.

With lots of flowery sounding language, it appears to state the recipient is the winner of two million dollars. It even outlines an option for payments in a lump sum or over time.

But if you read it more closely, there are several "ifs, ands and buts" involved to "win" this money. It says if you return the preselected winning number and it is matched, THEN you would be the two million dollar winner.

It also asks for a "premium acquisition fee" of $11.89. On the face of it, it looks as if it’s a fee that must be paid to collect the prize.

But according to the Better Business Bureau in Kansas, that fee is to acquire some kind of coupon book…and has nothing to do with winning the money. That BBB has given an "F" rating to the company, whose main name is Next-Gen, due to consumer complaints about the mailing and the merchandise sold by the company.

Remember, if you have to pay a fee, you have not won anything. You also cannot win what you have not yet entered. And if you do win, it's illegal to ask you to pay a dime…the only people you would pay would be the IRS directly. If you get this mailing, don't fall for it!

# # # #

Be a Don’t Fall for It! informant! If you have something to share you believe may be a fraudulent offer or scam, please let the BBB know! Call us at (859) 259-1008 or toll-free, 1-800-866-6668, or email us at info@lexbbb.com.

award two million dollars

I'm pretty sure it's a scam, but I'm going to take a flyer, since it's only $12. BTW, if these people are crooks, they're pretty smart. I got scammed out of almost $500 in a deal where I had supposedly been issued a grant. I went to file a complaint with the FBI, and they wouldn't even write down the information, telling me I was lucky that I'd only lost $500, that their threshold to investigate Internet scams was much higher, and that he had just taken a complaint from a couple that lost $13, 000 on a similar scam.

All of your observations are good. It almost assuredly is a scam, but I'm so broke, I'm sending in $12.00. Who knows, it might be my good Karma day - you know, the day when something really good happens, to keep the world in balance because of all of the Murphy's law incidents. If I get the payout, I'll write to this site and let you all know.

Well, they mailed me back a new envelope letting me know I didn't send the $11.89. WHAT BALLS!!! I circled and wrote on the entry form I DID NOT want their premium offer! This is a pure scam that will even answer you back if they think you made a mistake. I got to admit, that better than the other clowns that send stuff and then don't acknowledge you.
