I received notice from this company in the mail with an envelope with a canadian postage address. Stamped over the postage stamp has a web addres (www. canadapost.com) and inside it was a letter saying how i was a chosen sweepstake winner that they have tried contacting since April 2007. According to the letter I have won $195,000.00. Also there was a check in the amount of $3,950.00. The letter stated that i needed to cash this check and then wire $2,900.00 via western union. At the bottom of this letter there is an agent name and phone number. The name and number states as follows: Barbara Miller # 1(778)318-0797. Upon trying to call this number i got a recording saying the number was no longer in service. i tried the number at the top of the page and the same thing occurred. This number reads:1(778)316-2119. Also in the letter it also states two other sweepstakes companies: National Mega Millions and American Direct Sweepstakes. I have not cashed the check for the amount of $3,950.00 because upon trying to contact by phone it seemed false. I just now wonder what i should do with this fake check LOL! Michael
