I received a letter from Spain (with stamp!) from the Loterias y Apuestas Del Estado, desk of the managing Direktor. RE: Award Notification/ Final Notice. It was even hand-signed by "Manuel Angel, Vice President") in ink!
They said I had won a lump sum payout of 615.810,--, based on the El-Gordo Spanish Sweepstake International Lottery program. They wrote that a computer ballot system had chosen my name out of 25.000 others from Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and North America as part of a international promotions program.
It didn't say a word about having to buy anything or so in return, they just hope I'd part-take in their next high stake promotions angenda with part of my prize!
I wish it had been true! I was very excited and god knows I could do with the money!
They sent a formular from the "Santalucia Security Company S.A." wanting my bank information, full adress and next of kin information. I was to contact my claims Agent JUAN CARLOS (Tel: +34-675-417-847, Fax: +34-653-220-406) from this firm as a first step.
These people are getting cleverer every day! Always stop a minute and ask yourself: 'now why should someone I have never heard of give me money for nothing in return?!'
Maybe I would have called that agent if it hadn't been for my husband and this website!
Thank you again, and I hope this report will help others as well!
