Award Notification Commission Funky sounding Legalese Kansas City Kansas
The letter is full of funky English designed to look like Legalese, but it's a joke. Dig this:
"Attention Please! You need to follow the requested instructions herein as relative to Award Opportunity #7824C for $1,000,000.00 (One Million Dollars) announced by direct letter to you from the AWARD NOTIFICATION COMMISSION corporate headquarters.
This is an affirmed letter, XXXXX XXXXXX! Please note that this CONFIRMED opportunity to win and receive the Award is subject to your record of entry validation and completion of the SUBMISSION DOCUMENT (parts A and B on the accompanying page) for your return without delay."
It then tries to get you to send them $11.89 for something called WOARewards.com (who has also been cited as a ripoff) It says no purchase is necessary, but this is only the first letter. It closes with:
"Accordingly, our fondest wishes prevail for you now and always. Please be prompt with your reply!"
Everything is spelled correctly, but the wording is very similar to many e-mail scams. There is also a ripoff report for a similar sounding company located across the river in Kansas City MO. It sounds like they got busted in Missouri, so they just crossed the bridge into Kansas.
The "Submission Document" looks official, but the whole thing smells of scam. I'm not mailing it in.
