My mother received a letter with enclosed check of indicating winnings of $125,000 from Mega Lottery conducted in the U.K. on July 27th, 2012 with a ticket serial number and winning number. There is an indication that the company who sent the letter tried "many unsuccessful attempts to contact you" regarding this winnings (no one ever tried to contact her prior to this letter). It indicates that this is her share of a $4M pot with 32 other random winners from the US, Canada, Mexico, and the U.K.

The enclosed check was in the amount of $2,770 which was deducted from her winnings and enclosed to expedite the processing.  It says the sole purpose of the check is for the payment of applicable government taxes on her big winnings. Also says government taxes cannot be deducted from the winning amount because of the insurance policy coverage. The letter goes on to say that the tax amount of $1,770 must be paid directly to the tax agent. [continued below]....
.....

The letter also asks her to not attempt to use this check until she calls them back. It implores her to keep this confidential until the claim has been processed to "avoid unscrupulous acts by non-participants".

A guy by the name of Steve Hunt is the "Claim Agent" with a phone number of 1-289-892-3923. The letter is signed by "Rhonda" with the name Richard Robert printed below the signature with Promotion Manager and office hours listed M-F 9am-7pm and Sat 10am-3pm EST. In addition to the number listed above they also have a UK number of 011447031849516. It urges her to contact her claim agent immediately and quote her claim number for further clarification within 5 business days.

My mother called and spoke with Steve.  She said he sounded like he was from the Caribbean. She said saw something about 3-4 years ago on a show with the same situation that happened to a woman guest. Once you call, the agent asks you to deposit the check into your bank account and call them back once you have done this. The woman on the show deposited the check into her bank account. Went home to call the agent and within in minutes they had accessed her account and took her money. She ended up paying the bank back the amount of money the company told her to deposit.
