INTERNATIONAL AWARD ADVISORS Registered Data Analytics, Data Distribution Bureau Award Processing Center N.P.R.C Snail Mail Sweepstakes scam. You have been identified, confirmed and guarenteed to recieve prize money, must respond by deadline, by sending a fee of some sort. paris, Texas
*Consumer Comment: A slick escape.
* : OTHER SWEEPSTAKES WITH FEES.....
I recieve several letters through snail mail (post office) that claim i have won some sort of prize sweepstake money. These letters prey upon the elderly among others. They look very official, and the way they are written is impressive. I give them that. If you ever get one of these letters, one sure fire way to know it is a scam is to see if they are charging any kind of fee to recieve the prize money. These fees usually range from $5 to $20 and are called diffrent things such as "office attendant reporting fees, Nominal research and compilliation fee, registration fees or processing fees and the list goes on. The most honest being "report fee" Because this is what they are selling.... It is a printed report of information concerning sweepstakes. They word these letters in such a way it is easy to think this fee is necessary to recieve the winnings. BUT YOU HAVE NOT WON. You are just 'guarenteed,' 'verified' and 'confirmed' elidgeable to win.
The companys i listed above are all different organazations. They all issue tricky worded letters designed to trick the reader into thinking they've won some prize money and all that is needed to recieve said money is.......you guessed it some kind of fee!
JUST REMEMBER NO MATTER HOW THE LETTER IS WORDED, IF A FEE IS REQUIRED FOR ANY REASON, TO RECIEVE THE PRIZE MONEY, THEN IT IS A SCAM PERIOD!!!
